Last  Saturday 24th March at ten o’clock, all students, teachers and parents joined for the Opening Ceremony of our XIX Olympiad, a ceremony with the participation of all students from our school. They showed us, through music, different choreography and artistic performances, an allegory of the history of television. It was a show in which specific objectives were dumped in different areas of learning and it culminated with the effort and commitment of a project as complex as the integral formation of our students. In the program that was delivered at the entrance, we could  read a summary of the activities in which students showed their work in rehearsals and workshops with different gymnastics and rhythmic exercises. The program showed also a part of the set designed by students and in particular the Lighting of the Olympic Flame at 12.30 which leaded to a week in which classes are also scheduled with cultural activities and sports.

Celebrating Carnival

Posted: March 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

Our school has celebrated Carnival last week.  Fourth grade students have prepared a great celebration. Firstly, we have eaten our typical “tortitas de carnaval” and we have taken some pictures of our costumes, this year, related to “Indianos”.  Then, all the groups sang their funny songs about school, teachers and subjects. We also went for a walk with the sardine and finally, we played some games in the classroom.

We had a great time celebrating our Carnival, here you can find some photos of the celebration!
