There was a buzz of excitement on the coach as we embarked upon the trip to Palic. On our first day, we arrived in Palic and settled into the Hotel President which had stunning views of Palic lake. There we enjoyed our first delicious meal, which was followed by a stream of compliments by various students. Afterwards, we went and had an informative guided tour around Subotica as well as our first ice cream. Upon returning to the hotel, the students had a fantastic time in the pool, cooling off after a hot day in the sun.
Our Second day commenced with a visit to Kelebija Stables where the students each rode their own horse and enjoyed a ride upon a horse and cart. After lunch, we visited Palic Zoo and saw a variety of animals much to the students delight. When we returned to the hotel, the students had another swim and played in the nearby park. The evening concluded with an impromptu choir in the park.
The next day included a visit to Sovin Salas where we explored the surrounding nature and had a chance to do some fishing! The students thoroughly enjoyed this and successfully caught numerous fish – before releasing them back into the water… Later we had a Sports Day, in the park beside the hotel, which was a lot of fun. The final night culminated in a fantastic disco where both the students and teachers joined in the dancing, singing and fun having an amazing time.
On the final day, before returning home, we visited the Petrovaradin fortress in Novi Sad, which offered mesmerizing views of the city. Everyone enjoyed buying souvenirs before we explored the fortress further and finally made our way back to school. The students and staff alike had an amazing time and I know everyone can’t wait until next year’s trip!
