Dancing

Good morning Rock ‘n’ Rollers! Yesterday was an exciting day for all the students in Vallclara!

We had a delicious lunch and some afternoon activities in English. However, for some students the afternoon was a bit different: they went to l’Espluga de Francolí to do a virtual visit. They had a lot of fun walking around the town while learning with holograms and…
