Ana and Marc are two of the students of 4th of ESO and 1st Bat who participated in Bishop O’Connell & SIL cultural exchange 2016. They have tried to explain with words the experience they lived and how they lived it. Their opinion reaffirms the importance of sharing culture and language and to see how both culture and language allow us to approach people and customs so different from ours. Thank you Marc and Ana for wanting to share it with us!
Thank you very much for share it, Marc and Ana!
Last Saturday the group of teachers and students who took part in the cultural exchange programme with Bishop O’Connell HS in Arlington, Virginia, USA arrived. This has been the third edition of the programme and it has also been a success. Both, teachers and pupils, have returned delighted by the treatment they have received, the new friends they have made, the experiences in such a different environment they have lived…
We must thank the reception and welcome our teachers and pupils have been given. No doubt, this has been a great chance to learn from cultural immersion and making the language become a cultural approach bridge.
Thank a lot Bishop O’Connell!!
Students in second of ESO have begun offering their memory stimulation workshops to seniors at the ICAIME Daycare Center. The students have been working on this project in their advisory classes (tutoría) since the beginning of the school year, and now, the time has come to implement their hard work.

Bishop O’Connell and SIL are about to meet and share lots of amazing experiences again. This time our schools will represent us among students and families in Arlington, Virginia. Our teachers here and the American staff there are also very excited and eager to start a memorable week. Good flight and enjoy your stay!!!

Is it possible to design furniture without screws? Would they be tough enough?
In our furniture Project we are studying and working the different types of efforts and structures , we are testing the strength of materials and structures found in nature ; Did you know that a piece of paper DINA4 can support the weight of a 65cm tall stool without wrinkling ?
These days we are in a process of designing different items of furniture from not bolted assembled flat structures.
