Twenty Spanish students are becoming Seawolves! Our visitors, who arrived one week ago, are part of what is becoming an every other year exchange between Tabor and a school in Spain located in Begues, near Barcelona. They are with us for two weeks.
This being our second exchange with this same school, it is fun to see the Tabor students who traveled to Spain on the last trip welcome cousins and friends of friends they met in 2012.
Our day families have been gracious enough to act as host families to the students showing them American family life, while their Tabor student partners are adopting these students into their every activity. The school has planned trips to Boston and Providence, and yesterday they visited the New Bedford Whaling Museum to learn about our local history. Some fun social time has been planned as well with a pizza and movie night, skating and more. So far, so good!
Not only have they come at the most beautiful time of the year, but also there is so much happening at Tabor right now for our guests to enjoy. Theatre, music and dance all this week. Holderness Day on Saturday with a pep rally on Friday night. Then on Sunday night and Monday, they will have an opportunity to develop some lifelong leadership skills at our Graboys Leadership Symposium (more later on that!). These kids have come at just the best possible time to be a Seawolf!
We hope they are enjoying Tabor, and we look forward to our students chance to explore Spanish culture when they arrive in Begues in June!
