Last Week of School!

This year has been a lot of fun! For the last week of school the English department has organized cultural activities and games for the 1° and 2° ESO students who have passed! There was a scavenger hunt, dancing, trivia, and we even made pancakes in some of the classes! Thanks to all the teachers and Language Assistants who made these activities a possibility!
Have a great summer and we’ll see you in September!

The Renaissance

The students in 3°D have worked really hard on their Renaissance presentations. They invited students from 1°ESO to come in and watch their presentations. The students from 1°ESO had to answer questions and interact with the older students. It was enjoyable for everyone and the students had a great time interacting with each other! In some cases there were also sweets for correct answers or typical food from the time period!

USA Exchange

This year we are lucky to participate in 2 exchanges with the USA. One school is from Virginia Beach and the other one comes from Vermont. La Senda students and staff hosted the visiting students and teachers and showed them around the Spanish capital and surrounding areas.
