Los alumnos de IGCSE de Arte completaron su examen de 8 horas la semana pasada. Todos los alumnos trabajaron mucho y lo producido con títulos como "Congelado en el tiempo" o "Decadencia urbana" fue de gran calidad. Enhorabuena a todos los alumnos de S4 involucrados y mantenemos los dedos cruzados en espera de buenas calificaciones.

 

Congratulations to all sixteen members of S6c who successfully completed their two day one night expedition for their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award last weekend. Despite facing certain difficulties along the way, it was
particularly pleasing to witness the determination and team spirit which enabled them to reach their goal. When the going got tough, S6c got going!

We would also like to congratulate the dedicated members of staff for their time and efforts over the weekend.

Estimados padres:
Les escribo con objeto de informarles acerca de algunas fechas importantes en lo que resta de curso. Los exámenes finales serán los días 25,26,27,28 y 29 de abril, y las pertinentes recuperaciones los días 2,3,4 de mayo.

Aquellos alumnos que no aprueben el curso tras las recuperaciones no podrán presentarse a la convocatoria de junio y deberán hacer exámenes de recuperación a finales de agosto.

S3 students will sit their Mock exams between 15th and 23th June. The grades gained in these exams will be part of next term's assessment. All S3 students must come to school those days and no student will be allowed out unless the student brings a note authorising it; in the note it must be clearly detailed who will pick up the student and at what time. During September 2011 you will receive a Mock report.

Dear Parents,

his/her progress. We have organised this parent afternoon by appointments so you do not have to wait too
long. The time for your appointment is shown on the other side. We advise you to arrive 10 minutes early so
you can see your child’s work before talking to the teacher. Due to the large number of parents, we have
assigned 10 minutes per pupil. Please note that it is not possible for the time to be changed on this day as
all the appointment times have been allocated. If you are unable to attend your allocated appointment you
will need to make another appointment with the teacher for after the 1st April 2011. Please let the teacher
know about this situation as soon as possible.

Snow

This is a view of the snow taken from 5B's window!!!

It's the first time we've ever seen snow so close to school!

Los pasados días 27 y 28 de octubre, los niños del colegio de Maspalomas visitaron Ludenatura en Valleseco.Todos recogimos castañas y hojas secas que se habían caído de los árboles, luego con estas hojas hicimos un bonito sombrero otoñal. ¡Muchísimas gracias a todos los padres que nos ayudaron en este bonito día!

El viernes 4 de marzo se celebró el carnaval en el colegio de Secundaria. Fue un día muy divertido para todos los alumnos que asistieron , especialemnte para los profesores que ganaron 3-2 a los alumnos en el partido de fútbol.

Dear Parents,

We invite you to attend a meeting held by a health visitor who will advice us about the different methods of preventing the spread of headlice in schools.

The meeting will be held on Friday 11th March, in the school dining hall, at 15.45 hours. (It will last about 1 hour.)

We hope to see everyone

Dear Parents,
On Wednesday 9th March 2011 our Department will celebrate a Carnival Party. We are looking forward to seeing our pupils dressed up in their favourite costumes. Please, feel free to send in any Party food (crisps, juice, etc) for the children to share in their classrooms. We would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a great Carnival time.
This Friday 4th March S5 students, coordinated by Miss Frances Harkins, have organised a full day of activities for the rest of the school. All students must come to school that day. S6 will have normal lessons due to the importance of PAU and A level exams.
Students must come to school in school uniform as they will dress up in costumes in school. Also they must bring their books in case the weather is not good enough to have outdoor activities.
Thank you and enjoy Carnival

Tenemos el placer de invitar a padres y alumnos al concierto de

Dear Parents,
Carnival has arrived and we will be celebrating our party on Friday 4th March. We remind parents that this party is for the children to celebrate with their teachers only. This year it would help us to enjoy the day more, if the children came to school already dressed in their costumes. We ask you to ensure that the children wear or bring comfortable shoes as they will be playing games, dancing, etc. throughout the day. It is also important that they bring something warm to wear (coat, jacket) as the weather is changeable and some costumes are very thin. Thank you for your understanding.
The school will be closed for the Carnival Holiday on the 7th and 8th March.
As it is World Book Day on 3rd March, the Secondary English Department are running a competition to celebrate the day and to promote reading.

The idea is that students try to match each teacher with their favourite book. This should be a fun and challenging activity for them, and will hopefully inspire them to read some of the books mentioned.

It will be 1 Euro to take part, and the proceeds will be used to buy a prize for the 3 students who achieve the most correct matches and to purchase the books mentioned in the contest by the teachers so that they can be part of the Secondary Library.

The competition display will be along the main corridor, and entry forms will be available from the English Department next week.

We hope as many students as possible will take part although it has to be emphasized that this a completely voluntary contest

Good Luck!

The Canterbury School has the pleasure of inviting students and their parents to the:
