Three of our students have played a great role as finalists in the second edition of the “Caring for the Environment” Short Story Competition organised by EIM Learning.
The Spanish Language Department encourages our students every year to participate in different debate and writing competitions where they can demonstrate their Spanish language skills. On this occasion Ms. Torres, Head of the Spanish Language and Literature Department, selected three stories among a large number of students who participated in the competition. The school could only present one student per category so we chose some of them in the qualifying round and after submitting their stories to the competition, three of them were finalists!
For us it is an honour to see how our students develop their skills, work on their creativity and enjoyment of reading and writing, while at the same time tackling the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in a different and fun way, contributing to the adoption of global measures and goals to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and ensure the wellbeing of all.
At the school we work in an interdisciplinary way and we found the EIM Learning proposal very interesting, combining the complementary learning system, promoting competences that go beyond the didactics. The students had a very pleasant creative and imaginative experience while they investigated and made their contributions to another of the school’s clear objectives, “educating for sustainable development” through reflection, the search for solutions to problems, the commitment to change and the adoption of measures to prevent climate change and its impact on the increase in natural disasters, contribute to valuing biodiversity or incorporate sustainable consumption into their habits, among others.
“Education, in all its forms and at all levels, is not only an end in itself, but also one of the most powerful tools we have to bring about the changes needed to achieve sustainable development. Koïchiro Matsuura, CEO of UNESCO (1999-2009).
That’s the road to success guys, congratulations!
