The 2016 School's Great Achiever is...

...Irene Lemus Zamora!

Irene is a hard-working young lady who breaks the expected!
Irene was born on the 24th of June 2002.
She is from the 3rd A and during the break she is always on the bench.
Irene started doing judo when she was 5 years old. She has won two champions of Judo. They were in Caceres which is a city in the north of Extremadura. In both of them Irene was the second one. She achieved the blue belt and then she started practicing artistic gymnastics.
She started doing artistic gymnastics when she was 12 years old. She has already participated in several championships and events of this sport. She hasn't won any award yet but it is surely only a question of time. 

Congratulations, Irene!

"The 2016 School's Great Achiever".

With this activity I had two objectives: On the one hand to practice speaking and writing skills in English and on the other hand, I wanted students to explore with whom they share their life in the High School.Having positive and real examples from their own community is important for the young people who are at the crossroad to establish their identities and to choose their future career paths.
Students could have chosen people who overcome their disabilities and strive for the same school outcomes, people who help out in nongovernmental organizations, people who have their own life project and create something or people who reach in their extracurricular activities.
In the end, the 4A course has voted as the winner  a nice example that breaks more than one stereotype .
The text was written made by the students.

Day of Immersion

IES Bárbara de Braganza is committed to a strong language teaching, convinced that languages are not only an essential learning tool, but also a key to a better understanding of the world today. Taking advantage of the active methodology that presides over the classes of the bilingual section, we have organized on December 20 a Day of Immersion in the Language in the facilities of our center, which are invited to students of CEIP Arias Montano, Bótoa, Juventud, Lope de Vega And San José, who will participate in a very attractive morning with different workshops and activities that demonstrate the possibilities of studying ESO in a bilingual section like ours.
