1º ESO A students performed some Christmas songs in class. They played in groups using body percussion.
These images were made by the students in the International Baccalaureate Programme ( 1st year) to condemn gender violence and its consequences. Solutions can be found if we join our forces to support this worldwide movement.
The IB students (2nd year) have also created leaflets with the same theme. You can see some examples exhibited on our board in the corridor.
The International Day for the Elimination of Violence against women was created by the United Nations . This year, the campaign’s theme is “Orange the World: End Violence against Women Now!” where they want to encourage all the countries in the world to create ” a brighter future free of violence against women and girls”.
We want to collaborate with the Equality Programme (Programa de Igualdad) in our high school and we will go on preparing activities related to this topic like Talks on the bench , an activity where we will create dialogues using the symbolic bench placed in our playground next to our well as the background for our stories.

Next 25 November, a lot of activities will be held in Celia Viñas by the Equality Programme (Programa de Igualdad) to raise awareness about the dramatic circumstances of those persons who have to suffer mistreatment, harassment and violence. Once more, the bilingual programme wants to collaborate on this day with different activities in their classes.
Some of our groups have prepared digital posters with images and messages related to this subject ,this will be the incentive to make our students talk about it and ,in the following months, they will also make up dialogues reproducing some situations using the red bench (a symbol against gender violence) placed in our school .
All these actions will help to show our refusal against any kind of violence.
Halloween is coming and we want to put a rhythm on it. Our 1º and 2º ESO students are practising different spooky songs with body percussion and the help of our assistant, Nick. If you want to practise as well, look at the links.
