Arte: Goya, Mujeres (In)visibles

Nuestros alumnos de arte pasaron el día de ayer visitando distintas galerías en Madrid. Participaron alumnos de Year 10, 11, 12 y 13, lo que proporcionó que pudieran compartir experiencias y consejos para desarrollar los proyectos de IGCSE y ALevel. El objetivo de estas excursiones es aprender de estos artistas y utilizarlos como referencia en sus trabajos. Visitamos la exposición “El club de las mujeres (In)visibles” con obras de distinta naturaleza de 10 mujeres diferentes, posteriormente en el Centro Cultural de la Villa Fernán Gómez tuvimos la oportunidad de ver la influencia de Goya en artistas contemporáneos en la exposición “La sombra de Goya en el arte contemporáneo”.

ESIC Business School

The ESIC Business School was the scene for another impressive performance by Montessori students on Monday the 18th of November. Twice in the past the school has been a finalist amongst the hundreds of schools which take part in the annual Seminario Preuniversitario held at ESIC and a team from the school were the winners back in 2017. The project ideas presented by the Y13 Economics students were full of creativity and it wouldn’t surprise me if one of the groups got a place in the finals. An enjoyable day was had by all and thanks go to the students for their wholehearted approach, to Ms Sillars for organising the trip and to Andoni at ESIC for his enthusiastic, thought-provoking presentation.

Visita a Amazon

The Y10 Business Studies classes visited the Amazon Distribution Centre in San Fernando de Henares. We were given an excellent guided tour of the installations by Manuel. We then went to Europa Park in Torrejón where we had a pleasant picnic lunch. A most interesting and enjoyable day was had by all.

A.K.A. (Also Known As) BCN

Los alumnos de Year 11 asistieron ayer al teatro La Abadía. La representación A.K.A. BCN, obra revelación considerada todo un fenómeno teatral, no dejó indiferente a  ninguno de los asistentes . Disfrutaron de una increíble representación cercana a los alumnos tanto física como mentalmente. Tras la misma participaron en un foro debate con el actor realizando preguntas que hicieron constatar su interés en lo vivido en la sala.
