25 November: International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

Lots of actions are celebrated around the world on 25 November to remind us to keep on fighting against this crime.

Last Friday 23rd November, our students knew about this serious problem looking at exhibitions, listening to talks and participating in other activities which made them realize that this crime can happen to anyone.

Students analize in a critical way lots of songs and sayings which show an agressive behaviour against women and girls. If we want to get an equal and developed world, we must put an end to this gender violence.and this generation is determined to achieve it.

19-20th June 2018: Ancient Greece and Rome Activities

We are going to spend the following two days participating in different activities related to Ancient Greece and Rome. They have been made up by all the departments which work with 1ºESO and the collaboration of the department of Greek and Latin. We started decorating the hall of our secondary schools with posters, a big panel, sculptures, etc with images of this topic. We would like to thank Salvador, our maintenance manager, for all his help not only in this activity but in all the decorations  we have made during this course. You can see the result.

 

Then, we have seen “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The lightning thief” a teenagers story based on Greek Mythology which mixes action and fun.

After the film, the students have taken parts in four different workshops:

Greek and Roman Costumes

Greek writing

Making of Laurel wreaths

Caricatures of Greek and Roman characters

And at the end of the day, we have started our Olympic Games in the gym which we will finish on 20th June. And, tomorrow, we will all get dressed with Greek and Roman costumes and celebrate a traditional party.

This is the Spanish leaflet where we show all the activities in detail we are going to do during these end of the term days. We hope everybody will join us celebrating these ancient cultures in amusing ways.

Greek and Roman Costumes

You can watch different tutorials to make your own Greek and Roman  costumes. We will help you in class and we will wear them on 20 June in our end-of-the-term party.Remember, it´s only a guide and you can add accesories to these costumes.
