Durant la setmana passada, a l’àrea d’anglès, els alumnes de diversos cursos de l’etapa d’Educació Primària van realitzar diferents activitats relacionades amb la festivitat de Halloween. 

El resultat d’aquestes tasques van ser uns treballs manuals que, en conjunt, han servit per transformar l’entrada de l’Escola en un racó terrorífic i fantasmagòric que espantaria petits i grans.

La col·laboració dels alumnes i els mestres de tota l’etapa faran que el dia 31 d’octubre sigui una data difícil d’oblidar aquest curs pels nostres alumnes. Si us hi atreviu, esteu tots convidats a donar una ullada!

This morning our first transnational project meetings and learning activities have been taking place in Sitia, Greece.

The first meeting has been essential for discussing all the aspects of the project, share and define responsibilities, preparing the evaluation plan and the plan how to measure the impact.  Our 4rt ESO students, Bruna Elias and Emma Marti, have introduced our country and school in front of our European Partners fostering educational cooperation and collaboration.

The fundamental  aim of this meeting is to produce synergy for outcomes that are only possible by working with others.Communication allows all the participants to develop their understanding of the diversity of European cultures and languages, learn from each other and helps students acquire competences.

A Creta (Grècia), hem iniciat aquest curs  l’Erasmus K2 amb el projecte “Escola inclusiva”. Bon viatge ambaixadores!

On Thursday 5th October, we held at Garbí – Pere Vergés Esplugues our annual Cambridge Ceremony. This year we had the presence of Mr. Tom Wogan from Exams Cataluña, who reflected on the importance of learning English in a fun and motivating way.

Afterwards, the results of the CLIL activity during the 2016-2017 academic year were presented. The school’s CLIL approach follows the premise of using English as a vehicular language to gain knowledge on other areas. During last academic year, students at Garbí – Pere Vergés participated in an average of 83 hours of CLIL activities, including class discussions, watching movies, reading articles and writing essays, among other activities. These 83 hours, added to an average of 140 hours of English classes, represent approximately 25% of English exposure throughout the whole year’s teaching hours.

We sincerely believe that this is how our students will integrate the use of English into their everyday life. As a result, more than 200 diplomas were awarded at this year’s ceremony. Success is our commitment: we consider that English must be learnt at school and this is why we will continue working in order to give the most meaningful and exemplary education to our students.

From the Àmbit de Llengües i Comunicació, we would like to thank Mr. Wogan, the school’s management team, teachers and, of course, families and students for joining us during this celebration.

Let’s keep working together!

This morning, three Baccalaureate students, Mireia, Gerard  and Nona, have taken  part in the first CWMUN academic simulation organized in Barcelona by St.Peter’s School. Thanks to the learning model Global Classroom, the project puts under the spotlight the training model on which the experiences linked to Model United Nations are based.

It gets strength not just from the contents, but above all from the aptitude of stirring up and focusing on the personal and relational features of the individual. The possibility of competition with other people and the attempt to convince them that your ideas are the best even if they represent different cultural and political interests, require a deep knowledge of cultural identities.

The respect of such differences, without ever giving up to a constructing criticism, the skill of problem solving, the determinations in defending your position without ever refusing to confront with the other’s ones, these are essential elements in order to obtain a diffused approval and establish the practice of a positive leadership.

Such model being constantly enforced, with the English language as main instrument in a fully international background, it represents the very distinguishing mark for a productive entrance in the field of global working. CWMUN offers to thousands of students an efficient training ground based on the method called ‘’learning by doing’’.
