Los alumnos de F6 rindieron el examen de Egreso, el icónico examen que da paso a su educación secundaria. 

Antes de partir a dar el examen, algunos alumnos recorrieron los salones con sus carpetas para saludar a sus maestras de F5 con alegría, entusiasmo y un poco de ansiedad.

KINDER VISITS "EL PINAR"

Kinder students visited “El Pinar” neighbourhood. They observed the living things that depend on water to live; they saw ducks swimming, fishing and flying, fish jumping and swimming, crabs walking and hiding and algae floating. They also appreciated the wonderful environment and understood the importance of respecting nature.

CAIF PICNIC

Last Thursday morning, we invited the children and the families from C.A.I.F “La Esperanza” to celebrate what was a great year together.

Our Form 6 students prepared lots of games in the gymnasium to share with their little friends. We even had the visit of Santa Claus and his helpers, who came baring gifts for all of our honored guests. To close this activity we shared a picnic together in the House Gallery.

PREP - ART GALLERY

Prep students finished their fifth Unit of Inquiry “True Colours”. To assess the outcome of the Unit we invited one significant adult per child to help teachers in the Summative Assessment; how well students understood the central idea “The arts can be used to express ourselves”. We received mothers, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, nannies, aunts, uncles, older brothers and sisters. Prep students walked them through the Art Gallery to show and explain them their art pieces; materials they used, techniques, inspiration and ideas they wanted to transmit through each piece of art. We received very good feedback from all the participants, thank you very much for making the time to share such a significant activity with our students.

VISITA DE DON BOSCO

El pasado miércoles 6 de noviembre se llevó a cabo una nueva jornada de intercambio entre los niños del Colegio Don Bosco, nuestros alumnos de Junior y CAS. En la misma no faltó la alegría del reencuentro, el deporte y el intercambio de anécdotas y experiencias.
La colaboración sustancial de OBC & OGC en todo momento contribuyó a que esta experiencia sea realmente significativa e inolvidable para todos.

Con esta actividad concluimos felizmente en 2019 un proceso maravilloso que sin lugar a dudas volveremos a repetir en el futuro.

FORM 5 - PYP EXHIBITION

The PYP Form 5 Exhibition took place on Thursday, October 24th. It was lived as a real celebration. The day began with a gathering in the Junior hall from where the audience was then accompanied to the different rooms to participate in the presentations. In mid-morning, before the last performances, there was a relaxing and friendly shared coffee break for F5 families.

The topics illustrated by the exhibition groups were wide-ranging and student research included visits, interviews, surveys and bibliography. The resulting exhibitions were largely based in the view of Social studies, Personal, Social, Physical Education (PSPE), Arts, Language, Science and Technology.

The action component of the exhibition was seen as a key element in developing international-mindedness as students understood and presented their topics in both a global and a local perspective.

When the presentation was over, the whole exhibition team, form teachers, mentors and students shared a lovely lunch by the pool. Finally Mentors gave out a PYP souvenir to each student as closure of the event.

Witnessing our students display the IB learner attributes and attitudes so clearly was heart-warming. They were well equipped to answer the questions the audience asked about their chosen topics and displayed true communication skills as well as being highly knowledgeable. The creativity and integrity on presentations was something to flag up.

The PYP exhibition is a whole junior school community experience. It involves not only the students and Form 5 teachers, but also families, other students in the school and staff in general. We would like to thank all F5 families for their support and involvement during the process and on the Exhibition Day.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this rewarding process. Every Form 5 student deserves a huge acknowledgement for their effort and commitment throughout the learning process. This was collaboration at its finest and was a huge team effort. We are already looking forward to next year’s exhibition.

F5- BRING YOUR OWN BOTTLE

“Human Impact on Nature”, F5C´s exhibition group launched a Water Bottle Day campaign as an action for change. Students promoted taking action individually and collectively to publicly support positive social and environmental change before and during the Exhibition Day.

How did all started? Several decades ago, beverage companies started selling bottled water, which allowed people to meet their hydration needs and live healthier lifestyles.

What is happening now? Those plastic bottles began showing up in landfills and oceans with plastics that wouldn’t biodegrade, even after centuries. A change is needed!

What can we do? F5C students had an idea that bypassed the disposal centre altogether: The mentor and Form teachers supported this initiative and challenged students and staff to bring to school reusable bottles to be refilled with filtered tap water during the day.

What was the impact? See for yourself….
