NIÑOLANDIA
Once again and part of the Niñolandia project, our Year 4G children organised a gymkhana for their parents and family. It was a success in terms of participation and fun.
Students learned about the difficulty of organizing an activity, they worked as a team and discussed the different options in order to achieve the best results.
Thank you to all the contestants and congratulations to the Year 4G children.
Here are some photos showing the great atmosphere and the podium with the winning athletes.

"ACCIÓN CONTRA EL HAMBRE"
As you already know, our students received an "Awareness Raising Session" during the last week of April. On this occasion "Acción Contra el Hambre" which raises children's awareness of the global problem of malnutrition, is focused on the Sahel area (Africa) and specifically in Burkina Faso. Our students have shown great interest in supporting this charity project and helping to raise much needed funds.
We will send more information about this soon.

YEAR 1 SCHOOL TRIP

Year 1 had a fabulous time outdoors on their trip. They visited the "Plantación de Viñedos de la Bodega Tajinaste". The children enjoyed experimenting with their senses, tasting water (salty, sweet), smelling different pots and trying to find out what was inside. They were also involved in planting vines and they had the chance to design their own bottle label and thought of a name for their bottle. It was a lovely and rewarding trip.

DRAMA NEWS - TYPT
On Thursday 21 May TYPT members, Years 1 - 3, will be performing a Roald Dahl book called "Fantastic Mr Fox" at La Luz at 16:00.


CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
Thanks to the staff, parents and children at the B.S.T., a 12 year old girl called Daniela, can now have a life saving operation. Together, with the rest of Spain, we have raised 60 tonnes of bottle tops, which is the equivalent to 12,000 Euros. This has helped to pay for her surgery.
To date, we have helped 94 children to have a better life, by raising money for operations, rehabilitation and special equipment such as wheelchairs. The total money raised is now more than 750,000 Euros. We are now raising money by collecting tops for Dani, a 13 year old boy, from Galicia, Northern Spain. Dani suffers from a rare illness called Tetraplegia Espastica. Because of this, he is unable to move and needs a great deal of rehabilitation to make his life easier.
For Dani, we need to collect 40 tonnes of plastic tops, by next August!
Thank you for all of your help so far. I hope we will be able to bring more good news in August.
