Thanksgiving Day in our High School

We have celebrated Thanksgiving Day. It is a day set aside each year where people in the United States and Canada give thanks to God for all the blessings they received during the year by feasting and prayer.
Thanksgiving Day first started in New England. It was for thanking God for the abundant harvest of crops. This is usually somewhere in late fall when the crops have been harvested. 

Traditional thanksgiving dinners those days usually includes turkeys cranberries, fish, dried fruit, clams, venison, plums and lobsters.

We are Paris

"It will be etched forever in our memories on Friday November 13, 2015. This is the date that a group of barbarians chose to sow terror in various parts of Paris. As in a horror film, a butcher took place simultaneously in several places of the city and its nearest suburbs.
These inhuman marked with a black tie, the timing of the history of France. Even before Spain had reached the 11th March 2004, after England's July 7, 2005.
Paris, Saint-Denis and France full cry. We, all members of the institute Barbara de Braganza, we express our condolences and our solidarity with all the French people. But now we should not identify with Paris alone: we should identify with the world every day of the year. We should always fight terrorism and war, and contribute to the maintenance of liberty, equality and fraternity, because as Jean Paul Sartre said "violence, whatever form it appears, is a failure"

One of our favourite film is "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", the first film in the Harry Potter saga. It's directed by Chris Columbus. The film is about a boy who discovers he's a wizard. Another wizard killed his parents and Harry tries to beat him. The main characters are Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger).

"Jurassic Word"
One of our favourite films is the science-fiction film “Jurassic World”. It’s directed by Colin Treverrow and stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
It’s about a new theme park, Jurassic World, on the Pacific coast of Central America. But, in this theme park there aren’t attractions, there are dinosaurs!!! Owen, a park team’s member, is investigating about the conduct of velociraptors. He discovered that the scientists of the park create a new carnivorous dinosaur. It run away and it threatens everything in its way and putting all the visitors in danger.
We like it because this film has an interesting story and the dinosaurs are incredible. The protagonists make it real and very interesting.
We think that the fans of science-fiction and action-adventure films love it.

Shadow hunters.

One of my favourite films is the fantasy film "Shadow Hunters". This is the first film from a long saga of books.
It's directed by Harald Zwart. Stars Lily Collins (as Clary), Jamie Campbell (as Jace) and Robert Sheelan (as Clary's best friend also known as Simon).

The film is about a teenage girl called Clary. When her mother disappears, she learns that she descends from a line of warriors who protect our world from demons, they're called "Shadow Hunters".
Clary decides to join forces with them and she starts discovering lot of things like: she was forced to forget all about the world of shadows because her mother hired a witch for making that spell, she also discovers the Downworld...
She fall in love with a boy called Jace that is also a Shadow Hunter and they'll live amazing adventures to fight for the peace.
I'm in love with the story and the actors too! This film is perfect for fans of fantasy and romance.
