Halloween 2018

Last week it was Halloween and La Senda celebrated the only way we know how, with pumpkins, cakes, and a haunted house! There was a cake decorating and a jack-o-lantern contest. The 1°ESO classes also dressed up in their scariest costumes and took part in the haunted house! 6th graders from CEIP Manuel Nuñez, CEIP Tierno Galván, and CEIP Rosalía de Castro came and were terrified in the haunted house and learned a lot in the PowerPoint presentation!

Virginia Beach Exchange 2018

This year the exchange with Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach, VA was a little bit different from the previous years thanks to Hurricane Florence! Through it all and the threat of a natural disaster the students still had an amazing time even though all the extracurricular activities and the school ended up being cancelled. It was an amazing experience and the students have made visited a new country, explored NYC, lived with American families, survived a hurricane and have made connections for life!

Thank you Tallwood friends!

American Exchange Students at La Senda!

La Senda once again had the pleasure of hosting some American exchange students for over a week! The students are from Virginia Beach, USA and had a fantastic time exploring Spain and its culture. Our students will fulfill their part of the exchange in September when they travel across the Atlantic to visit their American counterparts and experience a day in American high school as well as many other activities!! The students toured the center of Madrid visiting all the main sites and a handful of art museums, they also went to Toledo and ventured to the hometown of Miguel de Cervantes, Alcalá de Henares! A special thanks to all the students, parents and families who make this exchange possible, and a special shout out to Ms. Sánchez for making it all possible!
