Week Camp Hervás April 2019

   This academic year we have been with the students of the 1st and 2nd of E.S.O of our bilingual    section in Hervás in a linguistic inmersion.

   The week started with really bad weather, it was very cold, there was snow in the mountains, it rained a lot. There were thunder-storms and it was eventually hailing but...

   The students were playing games indoors. The second day we were invited to swim in the SPA, we spent the whole morning there. As the weather was getting better, the students danced outdoors, practiced sports, went horse riding, practice archery.

   They also rehearsed for the Thursday night show. It was great! The last day, we went treasure hunting to the beautiful village of Hervás.

   We all are grateful to the people in charge of the ''Salugral'' because of their nice treatment and warm hospitality. The students are thinking about repeating next year.

Halloween 2018

Last 31st October we celebrated Halloween, as every year. Students of the third year of our bilingual section prepared a ESCAPE ROOM for all the students who wanted to participate in it. They all have a great time.

Also, the students of the second year of the bilingual section prepared a ESCAPE ROOM with quizzes, riddles and misteries. It was a good experience.

April Week Camp 2018

                              APRIL    WEEK CAMP 2018.

   As every year from the 3rd to the 7th of April the students of our school spent a linguistic immersion week in Hervás.
   Both bilingual and non-bilingual students of the first and second year of E.S.O. had a really good time practicing English and playing all sorts of games. Unfortunately, the weather was cold and rainy, but even so we all had fun.
   Most of the activities were inside except on Wednesday. We were walking to the beautiful village of Hervás . There the students were divided into small groups and they had to look for different important places such as : the church, the museum Pérez Comendador, the Jewish neighbourhood, Antonio’s house, the smallest street in Europe etc.. It was great.
   On Thursday we had a sunny day and in the afternoon the students practiced some adventure sports: archery, zip line and slack line.
    After lunch, the students had some free time and they spent that time playing cards, playing volleyball, football, fishing frogs in the pond etc… Also, they rehearsed dances for a Friday night party.
   On Saturday after breakfast they packed their things, played a bit and after lunch we came back home.

They are about genetic engineering techniques. The project has been developed thanks to the investigation and research of our students.

Good for them!
