Students who have given their all to the education program resulting from the tie are about to jet off to Spain.

They will be guests of the foundation, a branch of the world-famous Real Madrid Football Club.

Wellington High was the first school in Australia to accept a partnership with the foundation, which encourages education through sport and all ambassadors of the program display qualities associated with companionship and respect.

The 20 students recently received their tour hoodies ahead of their September 29 departure.

Harry Broome said the past 14 months doing the program had been great.

“It’s a really good atmosphere to be part of and you learn heaps and improve on your game,” he said.

Madi Hannelly was looking forward to watching Real Madrid play.

“That’s the best part, that’s what I’m most excited about,” Madi said.
