Christ's College South America Foot Ball Tour was an amazing experience on and off the field. Here are some of many highlights from the trip. Click here for the full blog and more great photos!
"It has been a pleasure to have been on this tour with a great group of boys. There have been many, many memorable moments that will be etched in our minds for a long time. Our friendly billets, our welcoming hosts, the loco bus drivers, our fabulous (EA) tour guide Victoria and Carolina, the power and purity of Iguacu Falls, the crazy football fans at San Lorenzo and the passion for football across the countries we visited – the list is endless. The learning experience both on and off the field has been a huge success."
"Thank you to everyone who has supported and made this tour possible. To our tour sponsors, Jade at Educating Adventures, Victoria, Carolina, Mr. Andrew Moore and Mr. Kevin Harris, parents, friends, family and the College – THANK YOU!"
"Through it all, I have laughed, grumped (occasionally), been encouraged and impressed by a group of young men who have done themselves, their families and their school proud. The numerous comments I have received from our host families and schools, the guides, and random strangers, have all commended the boys highly. Oh yeah – we played some pretty good football too!!"

It was back to school to start the day with the College boys helping out classes at San Juan El Precursor with their English lessons. The boys worked in small groups having conversational English practice with their hosts. The boys also got a tour around parts of the school which was absolutely stunning. The converted old house had beautiful mosaics and architecture as its main features.
Sightseeing around Valparaiso – one of the most important ports in Chile. Home to the largest Naval base, shipping and kaleidoscopic buildings made it a unique place with some stunning vistas
Dinner and Tango Show - After the meal the boys got a introductory tango lesson before seeing the real deal!
After joining the Grange College for classes they took to the football pitch for two great matches!
Magnificent Iguacu Falls!
Christ college vs Dunalaistar School, another solid game!
