An unusual day in Eddie’´s house
When Eddie saw the smoke, he knew he had to act fast. If he didn’t, he and his whole family would die! Everyone was very nervous, but he had to focus on what he needed to do to save them. It was a regular day in Eddie´s house when he realized that the kitchen was burning. Immediately, he went to look for his children and his wife to get them out of there. However, when he found Lorelai, his wife, she told him he had to wait while she was putting together all the family photos, because she didn´t want to lose them. Of course, Eddie told her there wasn´t any time for that, so she started crying. The man didn´t know what to do but, as soon as the children saw the situation, they started
telling their mother that they didn´t need those photos because they were going to take new ones, but only if they went out soon of the house. After that, Lorelai calmed down and Eddie was able to save his family from the fire. Luckily, no one got hurt and the firemen could rescue a couple of photo albums! Lorelai felt so relieved, the children were enthusiastic because they were going to buy a new house and Eddie promised himself he would be more cautious with his next kitchen…
When Eddie saw the smoke, he knew he had to act fast. Before then, he had been peacefully hanging out with his sister Lila through the park, enjoying his day. The family was new at the city and wanted to tidy the house, but the lights had gone off and ruined their plans. He was very relaxed until he saw a huge column of smoke going out of a near house. Desperately, he told his sister: “We have to help someway!”. She agreed, and both of them ran to the house and entered to see if there was someone left. They saw a couple and a child, totally shocked in a corner. The father told them: “We tried to call the firefighters, but the light is still missing!”. After those few words, Lila understood that they had the clue. Hours before, their mother had given them a map not to get lost. The fire station was included in it. She was going to run out of the
house when Eddie said: “No! We’ll be late! We should try to extinguish it!”. “No way!”, she said, “It’s too dangerous! You always want to solve things by your own!”. She was overwhelmed by anxiety. Eddie was about to tell her that he just wanted to help, but she was already leaving. Frustrated, he sent the family out of the house. A few minutes later, Lila and the firefighters were arriving at the house. As they were extinguishing the fire, she stood next to his brother and told him: “I’m sorry of how I treated you earlier. I was really nervous!”. He answered: “I know, there’s no problem. After all, you were right!”. When the fire was over, the family thanked them and they returned home, having a good anecdote to tell.
The morning I had waited for, for so long. It was Wednesday and I was waiting for the bus at the bus stop near my house, when my mum called me to tell me that we were going to travel to Buenos Aires for two weeks. When the tr by car began we noticed that the car lights were broken, it was seven p.m and it started to get dark. We couldn´t come back home because it was at the same distance to Buenos Aires, so we continue with the trip. It was a nightmare!. We did not know what to do. Continuing travelling was as dangerous as going back home. My father could not see anything on the road. We were really scared until Mum said “what if we stay here until the sun rises?” and
we did that. We parked on the side of the road and slept until the following day. I shall never forget this trip, it was dangerous but fun at the same time, since everything turned out okay. Mum and dad didn´t like it, and now they always check the lights before starting another trip. CANDELARIA LLAMAZARES - 4th Year

What is the greatest value of competitive sports? My experience on competition in general has left me with mixed feelings. While I did not hate it, I honestly canâ€™t really see myself doing it again, it is just not my idea of fun. But I do see thepositive aspects of practising them. What gets brought up when discussing the good aspects of competition is the positive attitude they give you but I disagree, I donâ€™t believe that positivity is something common in anything competitive in general. The main appeal of them is the thrill of having matches against and the satisfaction of winning but losing is common and with that comes negativity that you must overcome in order to truly succeed and not everyone is able to break this barrier. But more determined people will and thus they will reach the glory of not having given up. But what I objectively think, is that the greatest value of competitive sports, and any physical activities general is the healthy lifestyle that comes with it. Training to sharpen your skills in a competition is obviously good for both the body and the mind. Health and energy seem to be lacking in young people nowadays so this aspect should really be considered a huge plus . So, in the end it all depends on what each person seeks and how much effort they are willing to give in order to achieve their goals.
Discussing the values of competitive sports in young people has become an interesting topic in my classroom. I even had to make some notes to give my classmates my point of view. Some of my peers have said that the competition may awake a competitive sense rather than a positive and helpful attitude. They really made a strong point because young children and some teenagers tend to have a priority of winning above learning, meaning that unless guided wisely by an instructor, these young creatures are doomed to believe that winning means everything. Almost half the class supported the idea of sport taking up too much time. If you are planning to take up a sport and realise you could get good at it, and you want to prove yourself that. Turning competition into a habit is a choice that you must consider carefully, because if you are still at school your grades have got to be taken seriously. I stand, however, for the idea of exercising the body because it means a healthy mind. Even though competition might sometimes mean training every day you must never forget what your expectations are and that you can drop out at any time if you feel uncomfortable. It is your life and only you can decide what you will become and what will influence you. The greatest achievement rather than winning is the enjoyment of doing what you like most.
LUCA BARREDO AYRTON GOĂ‘I
by Sebastián Pallares And I know that one day I’ll be gone, that in just a blink of an eye I will no longer live, I will no longer be able to breathe, to feel, to cry. Someday I’ll stop laughing forever, I’ll stop writing forever, I’ll stop talking forever. My legacy may remain, I might forge myself into history, maybe I’ll matter, maybe I’ll inspire. I could become a martyr, a messiah, or someone who people should read. I could die a hero or live long enough to become a villain, I could be on the news or in a few tears. I have no clue what life will bring between me and the future. There is no way to be certain
that I’ll accomplish what I’ve dreamt of, no way to know if I’ll be relevant. Will I leave a mark? Will I do something of real importance? Will someone remember me? Will I die alone? Life is an uncertainty, and death is just the end of a never ending road.
What to watch and what to avoid by Natasha Choquich
If I had to choose the most uplifting movie I have ever seen, I would totally go for ‘Up’; while the biggest downer I have ever watched is ‘Five Feet Apart’. Let me tell you why. ‘Up’ is a computer-animated film which tells the story of an elderly widower who does the impossible to fulfill his late wife’s dream: travelling to South America. Although many people would consider it a children’s film, it is actually a charming story with a truly deep meaning: no matter what, we can always find a way to move on. The producers have succeeded in creating a film that, even though it is animated, it is believable and true to life. ‘Five Feet Apart’, on the other hand, is a romantic drama about two teenagers who fall in love even though they are both diagnosed
with a strange disease that obliges them to be five feet apart from each other. The actors do such a real performance that you end up getting completely involved in the story. This totally adds to making you feel down and, I assure you, probably burst into tears after watching certain scenes. So, if you want to avoid negative feelings, then you know what to do. I am confident that watching ‘Up’ will be a pleasant experience that you will not regret.
Schools are not Teaching Students the Skills they Need for the Future. by Fátima Cardenou
Literature, Math, Social Sciences… this are things schools have to teach. But sometimes they should also prepare students for reality. Academic knowledge is vital. Most of the time you need it. But, what about putting it to practice? If you don’t apply your knowledge on real life, and you stick with theoretical studies, you won’t gain experience, and you will distance yourself from reality. It´s not the same reading something than doing it. Take as an example a medicine student. He will know a lot, but if he doesn´t practice, what he knows is useless. Schools should also prepare students for living on their own, because once they are living on their own, their parents won’t be there to pay for their living expenses. Schools should teach pupils how to do how to administrate their
own money, how to pay taxes, and so on. At least in the last years, so that teenagers feel more confident to live by themselves. Another thing is that studies are mostly focused on Math, or Sciences. They should expand the possibilities for students. As a student who is interested in Art and Literature, I find it really hard to enjoy classes, and I definitely know I´m not the only one. To finish, I´d like to highlight that the school system needs a few changes. It should have more opportunities and preparation for the real word. I think the world would be happier if we all had the same opportunities in what we love to do.
