EDISON, NJ - A group of Upper School students and four chaperones from The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison enjoyed a wonderful 10-day trip to Spain during Spring Break.

The W-H students stayed with host families, attended classes at Colegio Altair Internacional in Madrid and bonded with their new Spanish friends. They also took the opportunity to enjoy sightseeing in places such as Cordoba, Sevilla, Granada, Toledo and Madrid. They visited a beautiful castle in Segovia, walked through a walled city in Avila and enjoyed a fabulous tour of Real Madrid Stadium. Some of the host families took their homestay students to a soccer match.

The group also visited a few museums, including Reina Sofia and Museo de Prado, two art museums in Madrid. The students learned about the art in these museums during classes at the school in Altair.

“Why do we encourage student travel?  We want our students to see other places in the world and experience cultures different from our own. Travel can be a little scary, but once students figure out that they can connect with people despite differences, and they learn to navigate in new environments, students grow and become smarter, more competent individuals,” said Rhona Eserner of Edison, the trip leader and W-H Director of Global Learning.

Students from the school in Altair, Spain returned to the U.S. with the W-H students. Their visit includes two trips to New York City, a three-day excursion to Washington D.C. and two days attending classes with W-H students. The students from Spain will return home on April 6.
