27 Sep New school year in St. Paul’s School
Our director, Patricia Carranza, presents this new school year and the new projects for St. Paul’s School students. And that’s just the beginning!
Dear families, the end of one school year and the beginning of the next always present a wealth of opportunities to assess, rethink, and renew our activities. Education is a continuously evolving process, and the opportunities for improvement are immeasurable.
At St. Paul’s School, we have always worked to give coherence and cohesion to our unique project, considering the convergence of diverse linguistic and cultural environments, a global learning approach based on giving our best, and the personal well-being of our students.
New Workshops on Nutrition
We have been promoting healthy, balanced eating at school for some time now, based on the idea of the Latin phrase “Mens sana in corpore sano” by the Roman poet Juvenal. This school year we will enhance our well-being program with a series of workshops and activities focused on understanding the reasons behind balanced, and in our case, ecological nutrition, as well as its influence on neurodevelopment.
We will conduct workshops with the youngest students to stimulate their senses, culinary activities in primary school, and informative talks related to nutritional processes and the different needs of adolescents (sports, image, exams) in secondary school.
In other words, we aim to develop an understanding of the reasons why we should take care of our bodies. The body requires adequate sleep, good nutrition, and physical exercise. Together, we will learn the importance of each one of these!
Inaugural Charity Concert of the Leonardo 4 Children Awards
As part of our Global Education program, we are proud to inform you that we are joining the 2023 Leonardo 4 Children Awards project, led by the Carano 4 Children Foundation, with the mission of promoting talent, scientific skills, and creativity among primary and secondary school students to address key global issues.
St. Paul’s School will host the inaugural event of the 2023 Leonardo 4 Children Awards, featuring a charity concert whose proceeds will be donated to the Small Foundation against childhood cancer. The concert will feature soprano Marina Krasnova and musicians from the Liceu Conservatory.
We appreciate the support of our collaborators and friends from the Ferrer Salat Foundation, the Costeau Foundation: Union of the Oceans, and the Superior Conservatory of Music of the Liceu for their participation in this event.
On the same day, September 29th, during the school day, PRI5, PRI6, ESO1 and ESO2 students will participate in training workshops led by members of the Carano Foundation to prepare for their participation in the competition, where they will express their ideas on climate, equality, and peace in the form of a fable or comic in primary and secondary school.
