This year’s group of participants striving to achieve their Bronze International Award completed their third and final training hike last weekend. After a rather chilly and blustery start to the walk at ‘Pico de Las Nieves’ (the highest point on our picturesque island), the trainees set off on a steady descent to San Bartolome de Tirajana.
One of our pupils is asking for our help to collect breakfast food (cereal, powdered milk, sugar, drinking chocolate, biscuits) for disadvantaged families. Each month, a different year group will be in charge of the collection and every 3er week of the month, will be collected and taken to the charity organisation in “Nuestra Señora del Carmen”, who will ensure it goes to those that need it most. This month will be 1st grade’s turn.

Year after year our year 13 students move on to pursue their hopes and dreams in the career paths they have chosen. However, where do they go? After having received both PAU and A level results, the great majority of these students are presently beginning their studies at the universities of their choices both in Spain and abroad and we would like our parents to know where they have gone and what they have chosen to study. The attached documents contain the lists of last year’s year 13 students together with the universities and courses they chose to undertake. We would like to offer them all our most sincere congratulations and the very best of luck in their undergraduate studies.
This is a school day in which all students will be involved in games and activities organized by S5 and S6 students. These activities promote important skills such team work and participation in shared activities. Students must come to school with school uniform and they will get changed into costumes here. Students must bring their books to school just in case it rains in which case there will be normal lessons.

Firstly a very warm welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all.
We would like to advise you of the following dates for our class assemblies and trips for this term.
Cambridge and Oxford universities, and Imperial College are the best and most competitive universities in the UK, and also three of the most competitive institutions in the world (see the following link for a ranking of the best universities in the world). Being accepted in Cambridge or Oxford is extremely hard and does not depend only in achieving excellent grades. Applicants need to go through a demanding interviewing process in addition to gaining outstanding grades in their A levels. We are proud to inform you that three of our students have successfully gone through the interviewing process and have been offered a place to study there, subject to gaining certain grades in the forthcoming A level examinations.
Youtong Song (Imperial College) YunFei Li (Cambridge) y Judit González (Oxford) are the names of the three S6 Canterbury School students who, no doubt about it, will meet the requirements and will be able to fulfill their dream. Congratulations to the three. Your teachers will support you to achieve success
The last day of term, a Mufti Day was organized by the Primary Department in order to raise money for Charity. We are very pleased to inform you that the amount collected was 283,00€ and it has been divided between 2 organizations. Please see the attachment with the amount deposited in San Juan de Dios (143,00€). We are still awaiting a written response from the other organization. We would like to thank all the parents for the contributions.
