Our students' little treasures.

This term is becoming daunting, we all feel exhausted and suffering due to high temperatures. The end of the year is not a feat easily to accomplish... so how could we overcome these setbacks? Just let me suggest u something and share with us this mini-movie directed by Georgina Martínez our 2nd of ESO student. 
Well done!!! You are such a sensitive artist!!!

With the help of our language assistant, students will show their recipes and will explain the process to their classmates. The winner will be chosen following 4 different criteria: appearance,taste,freshness and speaker's fluency.

Reading broadens your mind

Look in a Book

by Ivy O. Eastwick

in a book
and you will see
and magic
and mystery.

in a book
and you will find
and nonsense
of every kind.

in a book
and you will know
the things
that can help you grow.

In the main corridor of our high, you can find this stand with a lot of books that you can exchange.
It's quite easy, look for a book you have already read, dedicate it to the person who's going to borrow it, leave it there and choose another one for you.

This stall will be here for the next two or three weeks.

Everytime somebody turns on the set, 
I go into the other room and read a book"
