David Dunn - “ The Karaoke King”
Day QUATRO Another action packed day at Port Aventura! At lunchtime we went to see a show containing loads of daring and exciting circus stunts. Then we went back on the rides! Lots of us got photos for keepsakes and to remind us of the great fun we had screaming on the rides. After heading back to the hotel we got ready for the fun night ahead - which consisted of KARAOKE! Some mind blowing vocal performances including the fantastic opening act of ‘My Heart Will Go On’ performed by Sophie Henderson & Megan Nicolson, ‘Never say Never’ performed by Magnus Smith and ‘All Right Now’ performed by none other than our very own David Dunn! Mrs Reid and Miss Watt joined the girls and there were some fantastic group performances including Mr Spence, Mr Malcomson and the boys version of ‘I’m too sexy’. Day QUATRO really was something else!
Day CINCO The last amazing day in Barcelona. We started off by going to Nou Camp Football Stadium. This time Mrs Reid passed the mic to Mr Spence who told us about the history of Nou Camp. This was a popular destination for the lads but the ladies also enjoyed it. Then we ventured back to La Ramblas and had some free time to explore the stalls before heading to a fantastic Pizzeria, which was a lovely meal for the last night. We then went to the magical ‘Fountains of Fire’ show which was beautiful but loads of us got completely

soaked by the water due to the Spanish winds. After enjoying a wonderful show we got the bus back to Salou. On the way back we tried as hard as we could to sleep but many of us were far too wide awake so singing continued to help us prepare for the night ahead. When we returned to the hotel we freshened up, and then hit the famous ‘Crow’s Nest’ for a wild dance off which Mrs Reid had organised for us. Day CINCO was a really splendid way to end the school trip. Travelling Home! After a long hard day of travelling and shopping, we got the boat home. After we thanked the teachers for the outstanding trip, gave them presents and we all crashed out in our beds. The Barcelona trip 2011 was probably one of the best weeks of most of our lives and we shall all remember it forever. It was such amazing fun and we never wanted it to end. We also all learned valuable life skills that we will never ever forget. The Barcelona connection will remain with us forever. We would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs Reid, Mr Spence, Miss Watt and Mr Malcomson for making the trip happen. Mrs Reid has run the trip for 9 years taking 405 pupils in total to Barcelona. This involves a massive amount of effort and time. THANK YOU ☺ to her and all the teachers.
