On 9th and 11th October the teachers of Spanish organized a contest to celebrate 12th October, Día de la Hispanidad. During the lunch break 32 students studying L1, L3 and L4 Spanish (S1-S5) participated in combined teams of four. They had to answer varied questions on Spanish culture. In order to create a ‘Spanish’ environment during the event, the contestants had the opportunity of tasting ‘tortilla’ and were given a bracelet with the colours of the Spanish flag.
The two teams in the final received prizes. The winners were Juan (S4), Nassim (S4), Anna (S4) and Nils (S2). They each received a game to practice Spanish donated by the Language Department of this school. The second team formed by Irene (S4), Xavier (S4), Joris (S4) and Marek (S2) received a folder donated by the Consejería de Educación in the Netherlands.
