JHS students travel to Spain
Five Jamestown High School students traveled to Spain from June 17 to July 1 on an Intercultural Student Experiences trip.
The students are: Nichole Domke, daughter of Keith and Sally Domke; Hailey DuBord, daughter of Scott and Gwen DuBord; Elizabeth Fremgen, daughter of Fritz and Jean Fremgen; Benjamin Hanson, son of Kim and Diane Hanson; and Noah Wanzek, son of Tracy and Naomi Wanzek.
Students were accompanied by Kate Stevenson, associate professor of foreign language at University of Jamestown, filling in for recently retired JHS Spanish teacher Jay Nitschke, who was unable to make the trip for health reasons.
“The students were very well-prepared and wanted to really get inside the culture,” Stevenson said. “They showed what they can do with the language.”
Highlights included seeing a bullfight in Seville, visiting the Alhambra in Granada, touring the Prado and Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid and visiting a sword manufacturing facility in Toledo.
Students stayed with host families in and around the city of Alicante for six days. The coronation of Spanish King Felipe VI took place while the group was in Madrid.
