Students from Greenfield Community College have been given the chance to travel to Europe and make new connections with students from a range of countries. The recent ERASMUS+ trip enabled a group of students to travel overseas and spend time in a Spanish school and family homes, learning more about the culture, landscape and learning experiences in another country.

The students also worked with students from Spain, Norway, France and Croatia to explore Europe’s tracks. The group and accompanying staff completed two breath-taking treks, and explored the city of Alicante. “It was amazing to see how the students really pushed themselves in new surroundings and living in a new culture for the week” said subject specialist Mr Robson. “It was a fantastic opportunity for our group of students”.

Greenfield Community College are committed to encouraging and developing extended learning opportunities such as this. The students have learned so much about themselves and others, learning more about collaboration, gaining confidence and being resilient when facing new challenges, it has been a memorable experience for all.
