From June 6th to June 8th, students from 5th and 6th form travelled to The Borough in Mercedes. There they met people from England, USA, South Africa and Ireland, as well as children from Milton school to take part in The Amazing Race.
As soon as we arrived, we promised to speak English during our stay at The Borough
And then we went through Customs, where they checked we didn´t have anything with Spanish inscriptions
We met our counsellors...
Right after that, we met the kids from the other school and we played games to learn their names
These are the teams that took part in the Amazing Race
On Day 1 we visited USA.
We played many very funny games, the War of Mud was one of our favourite ones!
We also applied for different jobs to take on the last day: bank teller, shop assistant, waiting staff, entertainers.
After dinner we sang and played round a bonfire, and we ate marshmallows!
On Day 2, we visited Ireland and learned Irish dancing...
and played many typical games...
In the evening, our Irish counsellors told us some Irish legends and then we created our own in teams!
On Day 3, we visited England and South Africa. The Queen of England visited us!
Imre taught us how to play cricket
Then we took our positions at the bank and shop, it was hard work!!
The last challenge was to make our teams´ coats of arms
The Yellow Team won the Amazing Race, but all of us got our certificates for attending the program
It was a fantastic experience! It was an awesome adventure! It was an unforgettable trip!
All our love,
Celeste, Agustín and Fernanda
