WELCOME BACK

We are back. Welcome everyone to a new and exciting school year! It´s going to be full of surprises: new games, new phrases of the month, new workshops, new talks and a speaking assistant!
We are all a bit nervous and anxious these first days, but don´t panic! Everything is going to be ok. And to relax ourselves a little bit, it´s a good idea to start with a concert in English. Remember that singing songs help you improve your English.
Today we had the visit of Brenda Handford, an English teacher, and BlueSmoke, a fantastic pop band. Brenda gave us some tips to study English with songs and we could put them into practise singing along. BlueSmoke played several famous songs by bands of all times. 
We all had a fantastic time singing along!!! Thank you soooooooo much....

DANCE OF THE RIBBONS AT COLÓN THEATRE

And the great day arrived! Last Monday, the 30th of May, we had a show at Colón Theatre with other 3 schools: CEE. María Mariño, CEIP. San Pedro de Visma and Conservatory of Music. We all celebrated a day together in an activity called "Art for Equality", which consisted of a play in Galician,"A farsa do Rei Bululú".
We danced a very difficult traditional dance called "The Dance of the Ribbons". We had to dance around a pole with coloured ribbons, making a plait around it. One mistake and... But everything went perfect and we all had a great time, sharing nerves and new experiences with the kids of the other schools. And with live music!!!
Here is a memory of that exciting day...

A LITTLE BITE OF THE BIG APPLE

Today we could have a little bite of the Big Apple because we received the visit of Isabel González, a lady from New York. She talked to us about this fascinating city: its famous buildings, its skyscrapers, its parks and bridges, ... and she taught us a funny clapping song: "Miss Mary Mack". Here is a memory of her visit.
Thank you so much for your visit, Isabel! We hope to see you next year...

GALICIAN LETTERS´ DAY

Happy Galician Letters´  Day, this year dedicated to Manuel María, a wonderful poet. I´m afraid I cannot find any documents about him in English, but I´ve found a beautiful video made in a school in Northern Ireland. All the pupils recite a famous poem by Rosalía de Castro in both languages, Galician and English. Have a look...
And do not ever forget that "our language is the key to open the world", as Manuel María says:


A fala. Manuel María
O idioma é a chave
coa que abrimos o mundo:
o salouco máis feble,
o pesar máis profundo.

O idioma é a vida,
o coitelo da dor,
o murmurio do vento,
a palabra de amor.

O idioma é o tempo,
é a voz dos avós
e ese breve ronsel
que deixaremos nós.

O idioma é un herdo,
patrimonio do pobo,
maxicamente vello,
eternamente novo.

O idioma é a patria,
a esencia máis nosa,
a creación común
meirande e poderosa.

O idioma é a forza
que nos xungue e sostén.
¡Se perdemos a fala
non seremos ninguén!

O idioma é o amor,
o latexo, a verdade,
a fonte da que agroma
a máis forte irmandade.

Renunciar ao idioma
é ser mudo e morrer.
¡Precisamos a lingua
se queremos vencer!
