Estamos de enhorabuena porque ha sido aprobado para nuestro centro un nuevo Proyecto Multilateral Comenius: "Sciences and Arts: Improving the link" para los cursos 2013-14, 2014-2015.

Here you have the flags of the European countries involved in the project: France, Germany, Finnland, Italy, Czech-Republic and Spain.

Your English command of the language can improve as part of the Bilingual Programme of our school. Also we are going to learn a lot about the role of sciences and arts in the educational systems of other countries. Are artists so emotional that they never think in terms of scientists? That's the question.

Think about it and also tell who of you are interested in travelling and lodging students from these countries. We will be receiving at least 20 students from these countries in May. First, Antonia Montes and I (Carmen Castro) will share our first Comenius experience in Czech- Republic in November. Later, we will be travelling to Italy in February.
Are you ready guys?
