Our students took part in the first Inte´-school theatre exchange between local schools yesterday. La Merced, Lauro ikastola and The American School of Bilbao all performed for each other. The ASB with a technically difficult version of Othello, Lauro with their play Edison and Tesla and La Merced with A Teenage Christmas Carol Congratulations to you all. It was great fun, and a brilliant effort. We hope to repeat the experience next year, and even include more schools!

When everyone around you is filled with hate, if you can manage to keep a cool head, and forgive, then you are truly great.

Nelson Mandela died tonight. Understand the way he lived, and forgave, and you have a guide for life itself. "He may be compared to the likes of Mahatma Gandhi or Mother Teresa, as a great moral figure of our times. But the myth should not overpower the reality of a humane, richly complicated, and passionate individual." Check out the many articles about his life.

A new play for 3º ESO B

"Friendship" is the provisional title of the new drama that 3º ESO B are preparing in their English class.
We've just started, but we've had some great ideas so far.
Here's the link, so the actresses and actors can download them and rehearse their parts.

Hi there,
I've been really busy for a while, and haven't had time to keep updating the blog.
Hopefully, I'll have more time now, and can get back to making it the number 1 cool school blog in English in the entire world!!

So we're starting off with a new page; School Theatre, which you can find in the pages list above, where I'll be posting news, videos and recordings of our drama work in English.

Get involved. It can be fun!
