A glorious Saint George's day in images

Finally, the big day arrived. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but it all paid off in the end! The weather was on our side and everybody took their role seriously. But let's start at the beginning with some photos to show the behind the scene preparations:

Now the dragon is ready:

1ESO performance 

The first year students performed a very short version of one of the most popular stories for children: Little Red Riding Hood. Lia Palmero acted the part of Little Red Riding Hood, Ibrahim El Kassab was the wolf,  Michael Pérez was the father and Nayeli González was the mother. The narrators were Maria Pons and Eric García. Here are some pictures:

2ESO performance 

Now it was time for the second-year-students’ play: The Wizard of Oz. This was a 10-minute-story about a girl, Dorothy, who finds herself in a strange land after a big storm. There she will meet some peculiar friends: a scarecrow, a tinman and a lion and, with the help of Glinda, the good witch, they will beat the bad witch of the west and then they will go to see the Wizard of Oz. What for? They all need one thing from him....

3ESO and 4ESO sketches

The third and fourth year students’ task was to invent a role play in small groups showing a situation from the real world which they would like to change. Some students decided to base their role play on terrorism, some others on drugs, racism or on eating desorders... On the day we showed three of these sketches, two of them about the bad effects of drugs and another one about racism at school.


Already looking forward to next year's Saint George's Day! Thanks to everyone for taking part!

Getting the dragon ready...

Here we are getting ready for Saint George's Day once again! This year the ESO students are covering the dragon in wishes by writing them on colourful pieces of paper that then go on to form the dragon's scales, thus fulfilling this year's motto: 'Saint George's wishes'. Here's a photo of Sofía, one of the English teachers, and some volunteers putting the final touches to the dragon before it's exhibited on a board next to the school canteen. Thanks to Sofía's artistic talents and hard work, it's looking great! We really appreciate it, Sofía!  

Look out for more information in our next post!
