Christmas festival

School Festival. Christmas 2013.
Last Friday we celebrated our Christmas Festival in the school. 6º A and B students sang "We are the world". In spite of the fact it was very difficult they did it really well because they have got a big talent and they are great artists. 
I can only say "CONGRATULATIONS". His teacher of music, Antonio Mañas, was proud of all of them.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!

Kindergartener sign her class. Fantastic.

A five-year old girl using American Sign Languages for her deaf parents.
Five-year-old Claire Koch was born to two deaf parents, and American Sign Language was her first language. So while 60 of her peers used generic hand motions, Claire chose to use ASL, much to her parents’ surprise.
Claire’s parents might not have been able to hear her concert, but she made sure they’d enjoy it just the same. That's wonderful.

A vision of K-12 student today

Vision of students today.
Have we thought the amount of hours the children and teens in our care spend interacting with different kinds of technology? Who has bought all those devices or gadgets? What's the purpose?
What do recent developments in the field of neurological research say? Should the school care about this? And teachers?

"When he walked into our changing room to say good luck to us, he turned around and my number was on his back.

Mandela has died.
Some days ago we commented "Madiba" was very ill. Yesterday I put the radio on in my car and I listened to the bad piece of news: "Madiba was dead". I checked my mobile and some African friends from London had sent this message to me: "Nelson Mandela has died, how very sad".
Yesterday, South African President, Jacob Zuma, said Mandela was at peace.

Nelson Mandela I

Nelson Mandela Speech at 46664 concert in Hyde Park London, UK.

The Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday Tribute was held in Hyde Park, London on 27 June 2008 to commemorate Nelson Mandela's ninetieth birthday (18 July).

The concert formed part of the 46664 concert series to promote awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and came twenty years after the 1988 Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute concert at Wembley, held while Mandela was still in prison.

Here you can find what he said that day: "Mandela’s speech" in Hyde Park, London.
“Friends, 20 years ago London hosted a historic concert which called for our freedom. Your voices carried across the water to inspire us in our prison cells, far away. Tonight, we can stand up before you, free. 

We are honoured to be back in London for this wonderful occasion, celebration. Even as we celebrate, let us remind ourselves that our work is far from complete. Where there is poverty and sickness, including AIDS, where human beings are being oppressed, there is more work to be done. 

Our work is for freedom for all . Friends and those watching all around the world, please continue supporting our 46664 campaign.
We say tonight, after nearly 90 years of life, it is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now, I thank you”.


Do you know why Nelson Mandela 90th Tribute birthday was on 27 June?
