Dublin 2018 — School trip



Last July 2018, a group of students from IES Nicolás Copérnico and IES Luis Vélez de Guevara went on a school trip to Dublin (Ireland). They were accompanied by their two English teachers, Juan Jesús Aguilar and Inmaculada García, and also by Pedro Fernández, a member of Lis Education International Language School.

We left Écija on 24th July, took a plane at Seville’s airport and arrived in Dublin in the evening. It was a comfortable trip. Once there, the families the students were staying with picked them up and took them home.

On the next day, everybody met at Oscar’s School, in Dame Street. We had English classes there from 9 am to 12 pm every weekday.

On the different days, we visited many places in the city. You can see many photos bellow:

(At the back of Dublin Castle you can find Chester Beatty Library. It’s a great place! Here are some examples of its collections. We found some ancestors of present-day mangas!)

Well, this was our trip to Dublin. Thanks to our teachers, Inma and Juan Jesús, and also to Pedro (Lis Education) because they made it possible.

We had a wonderful time together and we made new friends. We’ll always remember those days in which we had fun, learnt some English and became more mature people. THANKS!!!
