The school tour took place over the May Bank Holiday weekend, and a group of forty traveled to Barcelona. Under bright sunshine and warm weather, the students got to see the historic Sagrada Familia, the cavernous Nou Camp, Mount Juic and Mounserrat, while also getting to spend an adrenaline filled day in Port Aventura Theme Park. Below are some photos from the trip and reactions from pupils.
Shane Conroy – School Prefect, 6th Year
Our trip to the great city of Barcelona started when we met at 3.45am in the school. We visited many historic places and were lucky that the weather was amazing the whole way through. Some of the highlights for me were the experiences in the Nou Camp, being able to witness Barcelona FC take on Getafe, as well as seeing the Olympic Stadium at Mount Juic.
The school tour was a great experience and everyone who went had a great time. I’d like to say thank you to Mr. O’Callaghan for organising the whole trip. ¡Lo pasamos bomba! Muchas Gracias!
Austin Henderick – Transition Year
Our group tour to Barcelona was one we were all looking forward to. In our group we had a great time with our leader Ms. Barry! We traveled to several beautiful places such as the monastery on Montserrat that is just under 1000M high and had some breathtaking views.
Barca was beautiful and lived up to expectations. I would like to thank all of the teachers who accompanied us, particularly Mr. O’Callaghan.

I loved the tour because I was with my friends and we all get along. The best part of the trip was going to Port Aventura and we got to go on all the rollercoasters! While we were there we learned of a famous architect named Gaudi who died in 1926. He designed an enormous church called La Sagrada Familia. Overall the trip was one of the best times of my life!
