ESO AND BACHILLERATO NEWS
Help us go to school!
Students in the last year of the MYP, 4th Year of
Compulsory Secondary Education, explore an area of
personal interest over an extended period of time. This
gives them the opportunity to consolidate their learning and
develop important skills they will need for both their future
studies and their life outside the classroom.
María Cuesta Sanz, student on this course, has carried out a
personal project in which she shows her great social
commitment, turning it into a learning-service project. The
aim was to organise a Christmas campaign to collect 50
bikes to send to Benin to allow the children to go to school, as
the average distance they have to travel from their homes to
school is 5 kilometers. Once the project was designed, it
carried out a great deal of dissemination work with the aim of
achieving the greatest possible support.
Thanks to her great work and taking advantage of the
adversity of the pandemic to spend more time collecting
bicycles, she not only managed to achieve the objective
initially set, but greatly exceeded it.
The learning that María has had has been great, managing
to develop the values of the International Baccalaureate
student: solidarity, since my project
was based on helping those most in need; inquiry by having to
figure out how to obtain donations, send containers, customs
processing and communication techniques; audacity, reaching
out to influential people such as the mayor of our locality, the
school's management team and experienced cyclists; thinking,
learning to plan and coordinate all actions; communication:
Creating a message that spreads in different media; open mind:
Listening to all the proposals that they made to him.
Thanks to María, many children in Benin will be able to go to
IX Mirabal Orientation Fair
On Thursday 11th March, we celebrated the IX Orientation Fair online, with the
participation of 36 educational institutions, mainly university, public and private
centers, Spanish and foreign.
The unprecedented online format was a planning and logistical challenge that
was overcome with minimal problems. The 3rd and 4th GRADE ESO and 1st
and 2nd grade IB and IB Diploma Program students and their families connected
during the award period with the centers of interest to them, to be able to receive
direct and personal advice on the offer of the different centers.
This academic and professional orientation activity is part of a set of activities of
the Mirabal Compass Program that will allow our students and their families to
know the wide academic opportunities and to be able to go through the decisionmaking process that will lead the activity with as much information as possible
