THE avenues of Malvern became the boulevards of Marbella for a Spanish day at a local school.

Malvern St James Girls’ School Pre-Prep Department organised the day to explore the culture of Spain and find out more about Spanish life.

MSJ’s youngest pupils, all aged 4-5 years, planned the agenda for the day and organised a line-up of fun learning events celebrating Spanish life.

Pupils and staff dressed in traditional Spanish dress, danced the Flamenco, explored the Spanish language, and sampled delicious tapas at break-time and paella and Spanish omelette for lunch.

The day was declared a huge success by the girls.
