Visit to the Jardin Canario

29jun2017-jardin-canarioLast Thursday, 25 of May, both year eight classes visited the "Jardin Botanico Canario Viera y Clavijo". They did a lot of activities: orientation in groups, flora identification and small art pieces based on seeds, leaves and flowers they found on the pathways of the picturesque garden. They had so much fun.

Srta. Santana took us through small, mysterious paths from where they could appreciate the view of the Barranco de Guiniguada. Some students were capable to get closer and feed three ducks; named Pancho, Juan and Pepe.

During the day they could appreciate the variety of Canarian Flora and Fauna including abubillas and lizards. The student's attention was captured by the amount of animals that the garden could hold things like; ducks, frogs, toads, fishes, insects, birds, and lizards.

In conclusion everybody had a great time, and they extended their knowledge about the endemic flora in the Islands. A great thank you to Miss de Aguiar, Miss Poyser, Srta. Santana and Srta. Suarez for organising this unforgettable trip!

Día de Canarias 2017

31may2017-dia-canariasLast Monday, 29th May, students and teachers from the British School of Gran Canaria celebrated the culture we live in during a day packed with fun activities. To make this celebration possible, we worked hard during the days prior to the celebrations: our reward was an incredible day which all of us enjoyed!

With the help of the Year 8 students, the school was decorated during Thursday and Friday. Posters, pintaderas and flags could be seen everywhere, including the first entries for the Canarian Flag House Competition. The posters encouraged everyone to participate in this competition and to donate food for the Food Bank in Las Palmas, like every year. On Monday, after an Assembly by Year 10, where the different workshops that were going to take place were presented, the fun started. Unfortunately, the rain forced some of the workshops to remain inside, but that did not take away any of the fun. Also, a group of students from this same class prepared chorizo sandwiches that were sold during first and second break. The day passed by really quickly with the Infants singing and dancing to typical Canarian songs, they coloured Canarian decorations and enjoyed a gymkhana which included traditional games. In Juniors, a plasticine workshop challenged students to recreate typical Canarian dresses, followed by a magic show at the end of the day which took everybody's' breath away. In Secondary, everybody had the chance to make handicrafts, to practice Canarian wrestling and stick fighting and participate in very challenging intelligence games. Thank you to everybody for your support in making this day such a special ocassion.
