March Break Travels to Spain, Morocco and Portugal

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 18, 2017 7:25:33 AM

The KES Europe/Africa squad has returned from their travels abroad. Our trip began with a tour of the capital
of Spain, Madrid, where we saw how grand the city presents itself and its beautiful architecture, including the bull fighting stadium. For our soccer/football fans, we were fortunate enough to get a tour of the Real Madrid FC stadium before enjoying shopping in the city center square once used as a bull fighting arena centuries before. Our itinerary took us next to the old city of Toledo, where we soaked in the breathtaking landscape of the walled city before touring the city center itself. As was the common theme in southern Spain, the Moorish and Christian architectural influence was marvelous. This was clearly evident in Granada, where we walked the parapets of the ancient Alhambra Palace, once home to Muslim and Spanish kings alike. The most fantastic and intimate experience thus far was the flamenco show inside an unassuming home, whose basement opened into a low hanging, concave ceiling covered in photos and decorations from the past century of flamenco performances in that very room. Some students were called up to dance with our hosts before we made our way back on the bus through the winding and dimly lit streets of old Granada. The twisting road through the Sierra Nevada mountain range, dotted with olive farms and beautiful countryside, led our group to the Costa del Sol resort town of Torremolinos. Sitting on the Mediterranean, this was an opportunity for our students to hang out on the beach directly in front of our hotel before our delicious paella cooking class.

King’s-Edgehill Students have the Travel Bug

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Feb 14, 2017 7:00:00 AM

King’s-Edgehill School provides all students the chance to learn beyond their classroom through unique travel opportunities. At KES, we believe travelling not only gives our students the chance to learn about the world around them, but also gives them the opportunity to learn more about themselves, bond with each other, and test the limits of what they thought they could do.

King’s-Edgehill School is known for its exciting student trip opportunities. Last March Break, KES students travelled as far away as East Africa for almost three weeks of living on a game preserve and helping build two classrooms in a Maasai Village. Another group of students travelled to Central Europe, touring Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Austria. All of the students who participated in these and other KES trips will tell you that they were filled with a lifetime of memories!
