NEWSLETTER

....FOR THE DELAY, BUT.....

SCHOOL SURVEY

Hi there! It’s been a long time since our last newsletter. We would like to apologise for the delay but the beginning of the second term has been really intense for both teachers and our reporters, plus we have had some technological problems at the last minute. Despite all the inconvenients, we only wanted to wish you a very nice term and we mainly wanted to say that...

LET’S MAKE THEM DISAPPEAR WE WILL FINISH WITH THOSE EXTRA KILOS...AFTER CHRISTMAS Nougat, shortbreads, marzipan, caramelized almonds etc are some of the delicious cakes to be enjoyed at Christmas but they usually get a place on our hips and bellies during the rest of the year. They have a delicious taste but the consumption of these products in large amounts causes an increase of weight and fat which is unhealthy and make us unattractive. Therefore, it is usual that after Christmas many people join sport centres and gyms in their cities to get rid of those extra kilos. Doing more sport usually is usually among our New Year’s resolutions. It is the beginning of what we call “Operación Polvorón”, whereas other people decide to give up smoking in January or start to study English, others joing a gym.

Once we find the activity we enjoy doing, we start going to the gym more often. That will help us get rid of those kilos we have put on during the Christmas season.

IT’S CARNIVAL TIME!! Every year, in February or March, a wonderful party called Carnival is celebrated all over the world. It is said that the best Carnival in the world takes place in Tenerife because millions of people dress up, sing and dance in the streets for a few days. In Spain, the best Carnival is in Cádiz. People do not usually dress up as elegant as in Tenerife, but the atmosphere is much better here in Cádiz. I love the Carnival in Cádiz because I usually have a great time with my friends and relatives. I laugh a lot and sing, dance etc and we do not go to sleep during all night. This year, we have made a group and we are going to sing along in the streets with many other chirigotas. Carnival is going to be celebrated on 22nd and 23rd February in La Barca de la Florida. I hope you don’t miss it out! It is going to be great fun!

WE PARTICIPATED IN THE STUDENTS’ STRIKE A strike followed by 85% of public school students in Spain according to the media demonstrated the discontent in the field of education in our country. While the Government plays by cutting welfare, young people are suffering the consequences, that is why in the last strike classmates took banners and took the streets in protest. Banners with phrases such as “education is not for sale, it must be defended” or “how many banners do we need to be taken seriously?” marched through the streets of Jerez informing citizens that the students from the “IES Vega del Guadalete” are aware that cuts for education are cuts for the future”. “Spain for the change and the change will change us”. Not only education, the health system or pensions are being seriously affected. This country is paying for the mistakes of people who will never miss these basic needs. By Ana Castillo 1ºBach.-A
