El dissabte dia 22 de setembre, vam marxar a Xipre a viure l’experiència de formar part del projecte Erasmus+ “Tracing Our European Spirit” acompanyats de la Sra. Núria Sala i del Sr. Alberto Gómez. Concretament, hem passat una setmana a la ciutat de Limassol, al sud de l’illa de Xipre.
Els tres alumnes de l’escola que hem format part d’aquest projecte, ens hem allotjat a casa de nois locals i estem molt contents del tracte que hem rebut.
Durant tota la setmana hem estat realitzant activitats amb la resta de països que participen del projecte: Àustria, Polònia, Romania, Grècia i el país amfitrió, Xipre. L’objectiu era conèixer la història i els orígens de cada nació. Personalment, creiem que és molt important entendre d’on venim per saber cap on anem. Només d’aquesta manera podrem arribar a ser els homes i dones del demà que tothom espera.
Tot plegat ha resultat un aprenentatge bastant complet i enriquidor i cada dia que hem passat, ha estat una experiència molt valuosa que ens emportem tots tres. D’aquí ben poc, esperem poder mostrar-los la nostra escola i fer-los sentir com a casa.

During this second term, Alex, a 6th grade student from Calypso, developed a project based on rugby for the English subject.
The idea of the project came out from Alex’s interests. He is a huge fan of rugby and he practices this sport in his free time. Plus, one of the most important tournaments of rugby, the Six Nations, started in February so it was the perfect occasion to work on it.
Alex’s project involved different tasks in which he had to put in practice the different skills of the English language (listening, reading, writing and speaking). However, what all these tasks demanded was a huge creative and imaginative effort.
A Sports News TV programme, a sports article (which would be later used to narrate the highlights of a rugby match) and video tutorials for his classmates to learn some concepts about rugby where the main aspects that are included in the final product of his work.
Alex and his English teacher, Alberto Gómez, are more than glad to share this project with everyone at school and they really hope we all like it.

This 3rd term, some of our Secondary Education and Baccalaureate students will be sitting the official Cambridge Examinations, which will take place at our school on Friday 5th May (speaking) and Saturday 6th May (writing, listening and reading).
These examinations will allow our students to demonstrate their level of proficiency in English to the rest of the world, since Cambridge certifications are recognised by thousands of universities, governments and employers.
Everyone has been working very hard throughout the whole course, and we are sure they will do a great job! Good luck!
