On Christmas Eve (24/12/2018), pupils and teachers once again gave sang the Christmas carol in the village and collect money for the charity event of the project. We warmly thank all the inhabitants of the village who have responded with joy and strengthened the whole effort of the students and our little pupils who preferred to spend their free time for this charity event!
Every year in May we organize a charity event during one day called Vallbacksdagen. The students plan different activities and raise money for different charity groups every year. In 2018 we sent the money to SOS Children´s Villages
Proactiva Open Arms is a non-governmental organization from Badalona (Barcelona, Spain) whose main mission is to rescue refugees from the sea that arrive in Europe fleeing wars, persecution or poverty. Born from a rescue and first aid at sea company with extensive experience in the Spanish coasts. During the third term, the NGO visited us at the center to tell us more about their work in the Mediterranean, helping immigrants and refugees of different origins.
So, sixth grade students decided that the best way to help the NGO was to raise donations. First they created different sheets and bookmarks and on the last day of the course, during the party offered by the AMPA, they offered them to families and managed to collect money that was donated to Proactiva Open Arms.

Children were divided into 4 groups representing 4 islands. These islands want or refuse to receive refugees (the instructions were given secretly once the groups were made). Other children represented the refugees and had to look for the island they believed would welcome them, but not all would do it. The children have explained their feelings about being welcomed or refused to enter the island they had chosen.
