Senior department – 1st Term News (2017-18)

When we started a twitter account when we went to London in March, we decided it was a great way to let parents know of some of the things that we do at school so it has been further developed. The messages are also put on our facebook page, so please have a look and like some of our postings!

We are proud of our continued fund-raising, summarized in the table.

All of our pupils played well and represented the school proudly.

Finally, a quick mention of two pupils with outstanding achievements this term: María Lopez, 10MD took part in the Spanish National Championships for team rhythmic gymnastics. Diego Poch, 7A plays the part of Michael in Billy Elliot at the Nuevo Teatro Alcalá. He is also in the series Centro Médico and is preparing a new theatre production called Street Scene for 2018. This will be in English so we hope there’ll be a time we can go as a school trip. Wow!
