Round and round we go

02jul2018-roundersOn Tuesday 12th June, the Tafira Primary rounders club played their first-ever match against another school! Extremely excited, the team travelled to play on the Marzagan playing field against Oakley. Children from all four primary classes played in an intense match where our skills as fantastic fielders and brilliant batters meant we won 27-17. Delighted by both the performance and the win, we sincerely hope to encourage more schools to join the league for the next school year!

Sticks and Tricks

18jun2018-sticks-tricksSaturday June 9th saw The British School of Gran Canaria hockey team play in the final tournament of the season. They lost the first two games, drew the third one and won their last match by an incredible 12 goals to nil. Even when they were losing, they worked well as a team and showed great sportsmanship. Well done, BSGC hockey team. We look forward to more fixtures next academic year!

Theatre of Dreams


On Tuesday 12th June, the Spanish Drama club was honoured to perform the play we have been preparing all year on the stage of the historic Teatro Cuyas in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria at Muestra Teatraula 2018.
As part of this initiative, our company took part in an intense preparation process until we found out that we had been selected for this event, and then the work became even harder. Every Tuesday, Gema Quintana, pedagogical assistant, and Victor Formoso, director, actor and head of the project, visited The British School of Gran Canaria to help us improve our diction and interpretation techniques.

The week before the premiere was even more all-consuming. With our costumes and props, on the 4th June, we performed at the South school, which filled us with energy for the first technical rehearsal at Cuyas on the 5th. Then we met our stage manager and producer, who came to see our rehearsals in school that same evening. On the 12th we spent the afternoon in the Teatro Cuyas doing more rehearsals... until the big moment came. In the audience, our friends, parents, teachers and relatives expressed their support with their big smiles and hearty applause. The show was really funny and the spectators couldn't stop laughing at our parody of Little Red Riding Hood.

It was a great experience. Not only have we brought a group of friends even closer together through drama, but we have overcome our shyness to speak in public having fun at the same time. It was a day that we will never forget..

Festival season

15jun2018-cobisIt was a pleasure to be invited to adjudicate at the 2018 COBIS Senior School Music Festival which took place at King's College, The British School of Madrid on Friday 8th to Sunday 10th June 2018. The Senior School Music Festival was a fantastic weekend for students to share their talent, skills, enthusiasm and hard work with their peers and make new friends from around the globe.There was a wealth of talent displayed across various categories including vocal solos and ensembles, rock bands, instrumental solos, ensembles and many more.

It was a privilege to be part of this weekend and have the chance to collaborate and make music with pupils and teachers from the COBIS Community. I look forward to our students from BSGC taking part in this festival next year. Lastly, I would like to congratulate King´s College on winning the overall trophy and for being such fantastic hosts.

Y5 Camp at Quimpi, Tenerife 2018

15jun2018-camp-quimpyThirty-six pupils and five staff enjoyed a fabulous residential experience in Tenerife from 4th to 7th June.

Day 1 was spent travelling on the Fred Olsen ferry from Agaete to Puerto de la Cruz and then taking part in fun activities on the campsite. The children particulary enjoyed orienteering, fencing, archery and ziplining.

Day 2 saw the group visit Teide where they spent time at the Astrophysics Centre. Here they looking learned about the importance of this centre as one of the three most important space telescope sites in the world. They also looked at the sun through special telescopes. Then they went up to the top of Mount Teide on the cable car and walked to a mirador to see the breathtaking views around.

Day 3 was spent having great fun at Siam Park where they all enjoyed the water attractions. No-one got lost or injured thanks to the close supervision of the staff and monitors.
Finally, we spent time at the Museum of Science and the Cosmos in La Laguna on the last day, an interactive science museum which the children enjoyed with great enthusiasm before catching the ferry home.

The food was excellent and Quim and Pilarin looked after us very well indeed.
