With something different planned for each day, teacher Jen O’Reilly-Turner described the trip as “fascinating for all of us”.

As well as joining a carnival parade in the village and taking a tour, the group met Özti the iceman and went trekking with llamas.

Ms O’Reilly-Turner said: “The students were able to immerse themselves into a multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment which they found to be a positive eye-opening experience.

“They have all returned enthused and motivated in their language learning.”
