From June 11 to June 14 sixteen of our Spanish B and IB Spanish A & B Yr 12s went on a language field trip to Spain with our Spanish teachers Mrs. Cruz and Mrs. Lira. 

The Spanish Language field trip aims to provide inquiry field experience allowing our students to interact not only by applying their language competences, but also by experiencing first-hand the social and cultural aspects of the Spanish language. 

These valuable qualitative and affective learning experiences encourage deeper thinking and reflection for our students by being exposed to a wide array of planned interactions during the trip, including gastronomy, art, history, architecture, and of course, plenty of applied Spanish competences. 

Among the highlights of the trip are the visit to the medieval city of Toledo, a city of the three cultures: Jewish, Muslim and Christian, representing a clear reflection of the influential heritage and richness of the Spanish Language. The students were particularly impressed also in Toledo by the works of El Greco, an inspiration to Picasso's cubist explorations centuries later. 

Visiting the magnificent collections of Museo del Prado and Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid, the works of the great Spanish painters, including Picasso's "Guernica" enhanced the appreciation of our students for the creative force, innovative nature, and diversity of the Spanish culture. 

In addition to a carefully planned set of gastronomic experiences throughout the visit to Toledo and Madrid, the students particularly enjoyed a live Flamenco performance, "also a UNESCO-designated Oral Heritage of Humanity". 

The weather, the itinerary, the comraderie, the breathtaking architecture and green spaces of Madrid, not to mention the shopping opportunities, have made a very positive impression on our Spanish students, hopefully an experience that they will treasure for a lifetime!

Here are some impressions of the trip:

TEDxYouth@ISH - Posted Friday, Jun 12, 2015 3:21:00 PM

Last Tuesday 9 June ISH hosted the 3rd annual TEDxYouth@ISH event. The theme was "Beyond Boundaries" and I think we can all agree that it was a resounding success! We're very proud of everyone who shared their stories, passion, creativity, skills and ideas with our community. The speakers and workshop leaders from outside the school were amazing and it is fantastic that they brought their experiences into our school. But what's also very exciting is the awe inspiring stories from students from our very own ISH, and we will look on with pleasure how they develop in the years to come.

A big thank you to everyone involved. Without the tireless commitment from countless individuals this event would not have been able to take place.

For an impression of the day, please visit the TEDxYouth@ISH website by clicking here or visit the Facebook page by clicking here. In the near furture the speeches will be shown on Youtube, but they have not been uploaded yet. And it may be possible to view other footage but options for that are still being explored. Watch this space!
