After lunch we went to Rainforest Adventure Golf
It is a game of real skill and great fun for everyone.
There are two themed 18-hole South American mini-golf courses in a rainforest setting: “Aztec” and “Mayan”. While conquering the courses you’ll be intrigued by what you discover about the ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures. The amazing special effects bring the worlds of these extraordinary civilisations to life. Meanwhile on your journey through the rainforest you’ll learn about its unique ecology and wildlife.
Four teams were formed:
Team 1: Nico S, Rafael H, Arnau V, Tomás P
Team 2: Quique P, Ramon L, Marc M, Santi L
Team 3: Sandro A, Nico B, Aritz A, Lucas C.
Team 4: Damiá D, Víctor M, Marc C. Pepe B (tutor)
They were given a scorecard and a pencil to write down the score. Pepe B. got the lowest score 43 points but as he is a tutor he was out of competition and the runner up, Santi L. with 47 points became the winner. Some players were disqualified as they didn’t follow the rules, the scorecards will be saved in case there are claims. They all improved their skills. A lot of fun and competition.
After the game we spent some time at Dundrum Town Center, Ireland’s largest shopping center where they had an icecream or soft drink. As usual, Saturday was a great day for them.
Our students speak out
Time’s flying. This week has moved very fast. There are three weeks and a half to go until we are back home, so everyone has to make the most of it. I’ll tell you what! Why don’t we listen to them?
Damià Dalmau Batet
My name is Damià. I am 12 years old and I am very lucky to stay in Ireland to learn English for a term. I go to St. Colmcilles School, they say it is the biggest school in Europe (I doubt it) but I like it a lot. In my class I have many friends, in the playground we play football, that’s why I have such a good time. The teacher treats me very well; during my first weeks I did not understand much, my teacher always tried to help me, and whenever I had a question she helped me as soon as possible. I get along very well with my host family, I always go with them everywhere, they never leave me on my own at home. I have a nine year old brother, who is a bit hooked on the playstation but he is a very good boy, I also have a four year old sister. I am really happy with this family, I will never forget them.
Marc Carrera Solano
Hello, my name is Marc, I am taking part in the Institució One Term Ireland Project. Ireland is quite different from Spain, especially with regard to meal times, but in the end you get used to it. It strucked me how students have lunch inside the school, each one brings what he wants. At school a lot of classmates invite me to play and I have made some friends. My school is St. Mary’s National School in Blessington. It is not very big but it has about 600 students, which is not a small number. I love Saturday excursions, they are wonderful and we all have great fun. My host family is very kind, and mine take me to McDonald’s with their children every week or every two weeks. Most families have Netflix, which is good entertainment for everybody. All in all, on the one hand, I am very well in Ireland, on the other hand, I am looking forward to returning to Spain
Ramón Ladero Puga
My name is Ramon Ladero. I am 13 years old. I’m having this first term in Ireland. It is being an amazing experience. I attend Rockbrook Park School. My favorite subject is English. On Saturdays we spend the day with the Institució group, in the morning we have English lessons and in the afternoon we go on excursions and have fun together. On Mondays and Wednesday afternoons I play football in a club. My favorite drink is Milshakes, yesterday, after the Minigolf activity, I had one at Eddie Rockets, it was delicious. I go out with my host family on Sundays, we usually go to Marly Park, which is a huge park with a lot of facilities and recreational spaces. Well, I recommend all my friends to take part in this great experience.
