DÍA DE LA HISPANIDAD (SPANISH NATIONAL DAY)


On 11th October the teachers of Spanish, Ms M. Gómez and Ms J. Nieto, organized a karaoke contest of Spanish and Latin American songs to celebrate 12th October, Día de la Hispanidad. During the lunch break students studying L1, L3 and L4 Spanish (S1-S5) participated in pairs or in groups of three. They had to sing in front of a jury formed by three teachers of the school, Ms A. Miraglia, Ms C. Ardelean and Ms C. Peraire. They had to assess the rhythm, the pronunciation and the performance. In order to create a ‘Spanish’ environment during the event, the contestants the jury and the audience had the opportunity of tasting ‘tortilla’ and orange cake.

The winners were Juan Jiménez-Villarejo (S5), Daniel Rodríguez (S2), Giorgia Gandossi (S5) and Shaan Holmström (S5). They each received a prize, a notebook designed by the teachers with the lyrics of the songs.
