British Fair 2022-2023


One more year, students from the British program from the four levels of ESO got together last Thursday 30th of March in order to show their families and friends some of the things they have done during this course.

1st of ESO divided in four groups: Technology, Social Science, Biology and Maths. They all presented different activities in relation to their field.

2nd of ESO took us on a world tour around nine countries, telling us lots of things about each of them and making the audience participate in different games.


3rd of ESO made different presentations (how different sports develop certain muscles, our project Green Berdea, etc) based on Healthy Lifestyle.

4th of ESO closed the day presenting us the trip to Ireland they did last autumn and the Erasmus+ project being developed in our school (Scratching each other's back).


We want to congratulate teachers and students on the hard work they have done in order to grant families and friends an amazing afternoon full of surprises.

In the Middle Ages, 90% of the population was illiterate, so religious centres were responsible for preserving and spreading the culture of books. The monks, in the silence of the monasteries, were responsible for copying the texts with exquisite calligraphy, as well as producing the illustrations and miniatures that decorated the pages of the manuscripts.
We, the groups of monks/nuns of 2AB,2BC,2CD have focused on making a Medieval Bestiary inside the monastery Pedro de Atarrabia. This has been their process:

  •  We select the animal/beast we want to represent. We choose it according to the meaning it had for the medieval Christian culture (closer to Christ or to the Devil).
  • 2º We practise with the Gothic letter Rotunda.
  •  We transform a bird feather (synthetic) into a writing pen.
  •  We transfer the information to the parchment with a pencil. After that, we start to go over the letters with Chinese ink (with the bird feather or with bamboo feather).
  •  We draw with pencil the drawing on the parchment.
  •  We choose the colour according to its symbolism (which is related to the animal we have chosen) and we paint the animal.
  •  We decorate the parchment with gold paper and perfect its presentation.
  •  We bind the parchamets in a book for each class

FÁILTE GO HÉIRINN! (Welcome to Ireland!)

Two weeks ago, 64 students from years 3rd and 4th ESO, accompanied by 3 teachers, spent a week in the Irish villages of Bray and Greystones. We managed to climb a mountain, hike along the rocky Irish coastline, visit an ancient castle as well as two museums, go shopping in Dublin, and even play the piano at the train station! And last but not least, we had the chance to speak a lot of English and learn about Ireland's history and culture with the lovely Irish teachers and families who took us in.
