We’d like to give a warm welcome to the students starting this week!

As always, the students at La Herradura have loads of different activities to choose from for the week ahead from walking tours around Montevideo’s old town to salsa and bachata lessons. We’ve also added a list of local events happening over the next month for you to get involved in.

Click here to see the activities list and recommended events! We’ll also put up a paper version of the list in the school where you can sign up and you can always ask in the office if you have any questions about anything.
