Indians and Puritans

Fancy celebrating Thanksgiving? At our school we did!!! The Mayflower brought us two Puritans. A native American was awaiting to welcome them as her ancestors did long long ago. The three of them told us about the origins of this special day in the USA. After their lecture, our students wrote their thank you messages that were posted into our super cool turkey box and later displayed in the main entrance hall. There are always so many reasons to be thankful for!!!

Broadstairs again!!!

Last October teachers Joel Gallardo and María Victoria Fernández took our 3º de ESO students to our favourite destination in England. There our pupils stayed with native families and attended lessons at Kent School of English. They also had real fun activities, such as hiking, pub and karaoke night, going to the cinema and barn dancing. The programme included visits to nearby Ramsgate, Canterbury Cathedral and King's College in Cambridge. They had an unforgettable experience as you can tell from the photos below:

Climate Week

This has been a climate and environmental awareness week for our students. They have shown their concern for the worrying Climate Change Issue with posters written in English. Some works are so artistic, creative and imaginative that we couldn't help displaying them in the main entrance hall, so that all the visitors to school could admire them. Here you are some stunning samples:

Not a Good-Bye, but a See You Soon!!!

Pete, these eight months have flown so fast. You are leaving today, but we don't feel like saying good-bye, but see you soon. You know you will always be welcome at our school, so come back whenever you want!!!

3º de ESO and Recycling

This year different subject teachers have proposed 3º de ESO students to work on the issue of recycling.
In English the unit Recycle your Fashion finished with students' own fashion designs using recycled materials, such as plastic, cardboard, old clothes, paper and most important of all: work, enthusiasm, motivation, creativity and imagination. Some of them were amazing as seen in the photos below.
No wonder some of our students may become famous fashion designers in the future dressing kings, queens and celebrities as Lorenzo Caprile, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada or Alejandro Gómez Palomo do or maybe founding clothing companies such as Ecoalf imitating the example of Javier Goyeneche and his concern about the environment.

A Cool Technology Project

Can't you get a big town inside a small school? We can!!! How? That's easy thanks to our technology teacher Jorge García Angélica and his 3º and 4º de ESO students with the help of other teachers such as Aurelio Vega and Francisco Dueñas. They have developed a stunning project not only shown at our school, but beyond as their "Smart City Project" has taken part in the XI Encuentro de Ciencias at IES Bezmiliana on 2th May and in FANTEC/19 in the Facultad of Ingeniería at the UMA on 24th May. There is also an information brochure in three different languages: Spanish, English and Portugese because our English assistant teacher and a Brazilian exchange student have also been involved in this fabulous initiative.
With this ambitious project, Jorge doesn't simply want to teach technology making use of 3D printers and stuff like that. He also aims to make young people concerned about the worrying evinronmental issue and we think he got it.
According to him, this work will be retaken up next year. In the meanwhile we can enjoy some photos taken at the different exhibitions:
