KS3 DISCOVERING CANARIAN MYTHS AND LEGENDS
Last Monday morning, 20th May a group of students from Year 7, 8 and 9 had the chance to acquire an in-depth knowledge about some events occurred in the Canary Islands.
Secondary students enjoyed learning about the Canary Islands as a Templars refuge and about the mystery island of San Borondón.
The lecture was presented by Juan Carlos Saavedra and organized by Oakley Spanish department.
The presentation lasted over an hour during which time the Canarian writer explained, some of the most interesting aspects related to the Templars, the legend islands,..
Our Language School teacher, Eoin Flynn, the Irish rocket, made a fantastic time, 1hour, 10 minutes 07 seconds, winning on Sunday 19th May, the 12th Half Marathon Puertos de Las Palmas. Miss Kim (Year 5) and Miss Sophie (Year 4) also ran and did very well in the 10.5km race.
Congratulations to our Year 7 student Erik Herraiz for winning the Canary Islands championship on Inline Skating Hockey. He is now with the team in Madrid fighting for the national final, which is taking place over the weekend of 17th May. Oakley College wish you all the success. Good luck to the team!
KS1 VISIT UD LAS PALMAS
On Monday all of KS1 visited Las Palmas Football Club. We were all very excited to be invited, it is hard to say who was more excited the staff or the children. We had a chance to play some games on the pitch that the players train on and then some of the team came out of the changing room and we had the chance to speak to them, have photographs taken with them and even get their autographs. It was a great day out and we want to thank all those involved in organising it and the parents who came with us. What a lucky group of children we are!!!
early years' THEATRE project
Oakley College is delighted to present the following video which is the result of an interesting proposal received from Teatro Cuyás. Early Years children who participate in the extra curricular activity “Theatre and Psychomotricity”, led by our teachers Nuria and Jose, have taken part in this pedagogical project called “Teatrae”. We are proud of our “promising actors and actresses”. This production has been a really gratifying experience for teachers, parents and children who have enjoyed it all along the way! Thanks to all the parents for their support!
