Be the change you want to see in the world.

3 ESO students with her teacher Clara Cuellar have created an amazing wall painting mixing different types of typography and graffiti on newspaper sheets to raise awareness about the importance of the individual role to achieve a global change to fight in favour of social justice ,peace and environmental issues.

An environmental project

The 2 ESO students were tasked with creating a poster as an environmental campaign/group in which they describe an environmental issue in their region or other countries. Moreover, they used the internet to search for information about the long term problems they may create as well as possible future solutions that their group proposes. Creativity was encouraged and valued while creating the title, slogan and design for the project.

A Nature Journal

Last Tuesday, 1 ESO students received their prizes after participating in the contest to make “a nature journal”. We are amazed by the quality of the works and we want to show you some examples from the winners.

St Patrick’s Day (17th March)

During the following week, we will celebrate St Patrick’s Day with different activities (A Scavenger Hunt, Presentations about Ireland, Workshops to make a Leprechaun hat and a shamrock and lucky four-leaf clover,etc). In those presentations, our language assistants Lindsay Keller and David Hidrogo will tell us about one of the most famous symbols of Irish Culture. This is a festivity which takes place in different parts of the world (because Irish people travelled all over the world through its history) and it is known for its friendly atmosphere full of traditional music and dancing.

So, don’t forget to wear green clothes next week and enjoy this celebration.

You can find some of the material you are going to use in class below.



A Nature Journal

Illustration by Santi Salles

The Department of Biology, the Aldea Project and the Bilingual Programme designed an activity outdoors to show students the power of observation. 1 ESO students walked through a park near our high school to look for plants, flowers, trees … to compose their nature journals.

After a quick talk to explain the activity, they were divided in groups to find natural models to illustrate their sketchbooks. It was not an artistic purpose. The main goal was to pay attention to all the details that Nature brings us and show them in their diaries using drawings and words. The students enjoyed the experience and ,as a final project, they will make a nature journal collecting the different pages they created in this activity.

Learning English through Drama

Last 3rd March 100 students of 1 and 2 ESO groups attended a theatre play inspired in Oliver Twist, the famous classic novel by Oscar Wilde. The play tells the story of a poor orphan who had to face a lot of challenges to survive in 19th century London. The play was performed by three amazing actresses who made us have a great time with her acting and singing. Our students loved the play who was spoken in English and enjoyed this live performance which mixed drama, comedy and musical.

Christmas 2023

Different activities have been done to celebrate the end of the year. Students have decorated some of their classes, have prepared gifts for their “invisible” friends, have sung Christmas songs and carols etc. and our language assistants have prepared material to describe what people do in their country during this festivity .

You can find some of the activities we have in the classes below.


Our American language assistants, Lindsay and David, have been in different classes explaining the real meaning of this festivity in American culture. The following presentation has been made by one of them, Lindsay Keller for our ESO students.

1 ESO students with their teacher Diana made amazing and colourful Thanksgiving cards that we can see on the Erasmus Board in the main corrridor.

25 Nov. International Day against Gender Violence

It is part of our purpose to use our activities in the bilingual programme to broaden our students’ worldview but also to raise awareness about social problems which are too often present in news. That was the idea when the programme of Equality in our school designed several activities for the International Day against Gender Violence.

1º , 2º ESO students and 3º students of the Diversity Programme have collaborated to create a wall on one of the boards in the corridor of our school to protest against this problem expressing their feelings and wishes to find a solution. These meaningful bricks will remind us of the need to collaborate among the different members of our society to fight in favour of a world without this cruel violence. IB students have also created posters with the same aim and they will also be exhibited in the corridor.

Halloween 2023

1 ESO students receive the visit of 1 and 2 IB students who told them spooky tales to celebrate Halloween. These 1 and 2 ESO students also decorate their classroom doors with iconic images related to this anglosaxon festivity.
