The school has participated today in the action organized by Ajuntament de Barcelona, “Dia Sense Cotxes”, in the Mobility Week. We’ve played traditional games in the street, we have decorated it, named the trees that bring life t it… We have taken the place to cars and we have enjoyed it a lot. What a good experience!
The students of 1st Baccalaureate of SIL School, Ildara Durán Tamaral, Marc Larrosa Durà and Stanislav Didkovskyi, have successfully participated during the days 24, 25, 26 and 27 of February in León, representing their Autonomous Community together with other selected students from other schools in Catalonia and the rest of Spain.
There have been days of intense debate and negotiation to establish clauses and resolutions on various topics of interest within the framework of the Union. Some of themes discussed were: refugee crisis, discrimination against women in the labour market, irregular employment and business transparency in the EU or the arms market in the EU.
Congratulations to all students for reaching this stage and for the level of excellence and effort shown.
The students of 1st Baccalaureate of SIL School have qualified for the I Session of Model European Parliament_ MEP Catalunya 2016. In this phase they have shown a level of excellence not only in debating, but also in the work they have been commissioned in the assembly of delegates representing various regions in Catalonia. This act was held last November at the Abad Oliba University.
In this session the students have worked on the following themes: the discrimination of women in the workplace in the European Union, the crisis of refugees in the European of Schengen Agreement, the sale of weapons in Europe, disagreements in the labour market in the European Union.
Congratulations to all students for their level of work and the good atmosphere they have created during the three days of the session.
They have started training and working in The Museum of Sciences as explainers.
The program Explainers hopes to improve the vocation in scientific technologies with communicative skills and the use of English for science in secondary education while explaining some of the experiments which are displayed in the museum CosmoCaixa.
This experience started through a program in the principal science museums in the United States of America and since 1969 has been the starring program in the San Francisco Exploratorium.
The students will spend two to three weeks training to become Explainers in CosmoCaixa, and for six weekends they will explain to the visitors in the museum the different experiments and concepts.
The students participation in this program strengthens their knowledge in the areas of science and technology, and the public visiting CosmoCaixa have the opportunity to enjoy scientific knowledge in a different way.
Already the students are putting in to practice what they have learned, with a high level, and without doubt enjoying the experience.
EU Code Week is a grass-roots movement that celebrates creating with code. The idea is to make programming more visible, to show the young, adults and elderly how to bring ideas to life with code, to demystify these skills and bring motivated people together to learn.
The SIL School has participated in the CodeWeek EU with two events.
Last year, 46 countries took part in EU Code Week with 7600 events.
We have started the caps’s solidarity campaign for this year. All students of Primary and Secundary courses participate in the campaign “Open your solidarity”, which is conducted in collaboration with the GAEM (Group Affected Multiple Sclerosis Foundation).
For this reason you can find containers for the collection of caps in different parts of the school.
Thank you all for your solidarity.
