Children from Years 1 to 6 were very fortunate to take part in fitness activities led by coaches and students from the AASE (Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence). Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed thesese ssions and were praised by the coaches for their enthusiasm and great behaviour.
Year 2C organised a very successful drawing competition for their families. The children were also able to demonstrate their artistic skills. It was a pleasant surprise to see the quality of the art work done. Congratulations to Year 2C for showing such great effort and interest in organising this event.
First prize Participants
Year 3S invited their families to come to school to hold a paper aeroplane competition. Parents and relatives produced fantastic paper aeroplanes. There were medals for the prettiest, fastest, those who planned better and also for those who did the best stunts. It was a very close competition and the jury of students in Year 3S found it very difficult to make a decision. Congratulations to Year 3S for organising this event.

The British School welcomed back the Bristol Academy from England once again this month. This time we were visited by three professional boxing coaches and 15 students from the academy.
They attended all three sites and demonstrated their training techniques and allowed our students to spar against each other. As always the event was very well run and safe for all involved. The students really enjoyed being part of something that was new to them.
This term Year 10 will participate in the exchange day with Mayco school. The students from both schools will visit the Los Realejos Sports Centre and participate in a Drama and Sports Day on 17 th March.
Valentine's Day Disco
Once again the students of KS3 got the chance to visit our Yeoward site to participate in the school disco. The night was enjoyed by all and attended by many sixth formers who helped to run the event.
The disco generated about 400 euros and the money raised went towards furniture for the sixth form common room. We would like to thank Mr Arthur and the teachers involved for hosting the event.
