Spanish Week at La Garenne

For Spanish Week at La Garenne, the primary section were introduced to this with an informative assembly by our Year 5 pupils. The Year 5 class taught us so much about Spanish culture, not only in Spain but in other Spanish speaking countries around the world. There are 20 countries that have Spanish as their official language and more than 400 million people speak Spanish around the world.

Each child presented information, that they had individually researched, about a famous Spanish person or festival. We heard about Rafael Nadal, the No.1 tennis champion, Salvador Dali and Picasso, the famous artists, as well as about some Spanish footballers and ‘La Tomatina’ festival, where people throw tomatoes at each other!

The girls treated us to a Flamenco dance as they had been practising some of the moves and the boys each introduced themselves and their ages in Spanish.

The assembly finished with everyone in the primary section having a go at learning some Spanish words, led by Rodrigo, our Year 5 Spanish speaker!

In a few weeks, the older students will be able to participate in the evening disco on the ice, here in Villars. It will be a good evening and I am sure they will enjoy themselves.

We are Responsible Global Citizens!

The Primary section spent time in assembly this morning thinking and talking about what it means to be a global citizen. They shared their fantastic ideas and worked collaboratively in groups to look at and discuss the Global Goals. The children had some great suggestions as to how we as a school can make the world a better place, and how as individuals, we can be responsible global citizens.

Lucerne

This term the Senior girls have finally saved up enough money to go for the weekend to Lucerne. They have been saving money in order to pay for a weekend away together, including their hotel and I am sure, lots of shopping. Paula and Maria-Sofia will accompany them and I am sure they will have a great time.
