Spanish San Churro Excursion

Last Friday, the 29th of April, the year 9 Spanish class went on an excursion to the very educational Chadstone Shopping Centre and the San Churro Spanish Cafe, were we could enjoy a traditional Spanish dessert, churros!. We had been looking forward to this excursion for many weeks, and we could barely contain our excitement any longer. As soon as the lunch bell rang, we practically ran to the front of school, where we impatiently waited for the bus to Chaddy. Throughout the entire bus ride we chatted about churros, how the students at school would be so envious, and there were definitely a few heated discussions about which “dip cup” was the best. Would we get milk chocolate, dark chocolate, salted caramel, or even cookie butter.

Once we arrived at Chadstone, we almost raced to San Churros to score a circular booth and search the menu for our favourite dessert. All the options looked so delicious that it was extremely hard to choose. After we placed our orders, we then talked some more, the anticipation building as we could hear the faint sizzling of the churros frying, and the sweet smell wafted through the air. Then finally, our churros came to the table, and looked so amazingly crunchy and sweet, we nearly had to have a moment of silence to give thanks. Nearly… We immediately dug in, and in no time at all, we were full to bursting. Needless to say it was a much slower walk back to the bus and later, school.

Thanks to Ms. Jimenez for organising the excursion, and Mr. O’Brien for coming along with us.
