SEMANA CULTURAL

Once again our school celebrated its Cultural Week (23 – 30 Apri). The idea was to develop an educational project which helps students in their process of learning as much as possible. During the week, they carried out different tasks and presented their work to other students. They became the protagonists of the teaching-learning process.

Una vez más, nuestro centro celebra su Semana Cultural. La idea es desarrollar un proyecto educativo que implique a los alumnos en su propio aprendizaje. Durante la semana, han realizado diferentes actividades y las han presentado a alumnos de otras clases. Se han convertido en los protagonistas de su proceso de enseñanza-aprendizaje.

The Bilingual Project actively contributed with activities like these:

BATTLE OF IDEAS

Students of 1º Bachillerato discussed about different topics in Philosophy.

The group of Social Sciences and Humanities defended the traditional conception of fidelity, unraveling the concepts and values that are derived from it or that conclude in it. On the other hand, the group of Sciences raised a deconstruction of the concept of infidelity and criticized the cultural assessment that is made of it.

Debate entre los dos grupos de Bachillerato en el que cada uno de ellos defendió una serie de ideas relacionadas entre sí. El tema que ellos mismos eligieron fue “La fidelidad”.

El grupo de Bachillerato de Ciencias Sociales y Humanidades defendió la concepción tradicional de la fidelidad, desentrañando los conceptos y valores que de ésta derivan o que en ella concluyen.

Por contra, el grupo de Bachillerato de Ciencias, planteó una deconstrucción del concepto de infidelidad y sometió a crítica la valoración cultural que se hace de ésta.
