HALLOWEEN IS ARRIVING AT OUR SCHOOL.... STAY TUNED!

April 2023

VISIT OF STUDENTS FROM THE CZECH REPUBLIC

Our school received a visit from a group of students from the BIGY J.N. Neumanna, at České Budějovice (Czech Republic) from the 15th until the 20th of April. This visit was possible thanks to the Erasmus Plus programme. The students could learn how our school works by visiting our classroom. They also walked through our city (visiting "El Pilar", our Roman remains, "Parque José Antonio Labordeta", etc.) learning all about our history and lots of curiosities. Besides, they could spend time with their classmates from Spain, establishing long lasting bonds with them.


In the pictures below you can see a bit of that great experience. We hope to pay a return visit very soon!




Spelling Bee Contest 2023

One more year, our school participated in the Spelling Bee Contest that took place at the Aquarium in Zaragoza on the 29th and 30th of March. Annabell Ikponmwosa and Lingyu Lai participated in the junior category. Petrica Sintion and Mudar Al Azem participated in the intermediate category. They did really well and fully enjoyed the experience.

Besides, Tian, our teaching assistant, congratulated our students for their effort and awarded them with the typical Australian "Caramello Koalas", which our students really liked!

It is already a tradition to organise a cultural week to work and learn with the history and culture of English speaking countries. Two years ago our cultural week dealt with Ireland.

Our students loved trying this kind of food (even it they found Vegemite's taste rather strange) while they were working with her in class.

THE COMMONWEALTH GAMES (P.E. 1ºand 2ºESO)

The sports that are played in this competition are: Wrestling, netball, rugby, cricket, badminton, hockey, etc… As Rugby is a quite popular sport in many Commonwealth countries, this is why we are learning about RUGBY TAG. Rugby tag is an adaptation of rugby and its being great fun.
