22nd March - World Water Day

Drops for Niger is an educational campaign carried out by UNICEF that seeks to show the importance of water as a basic human right to be respected an valued, as well as its relation to child survival. It also teaches us about the situation in one of the poorest countries in the world, where only 46% of the population has access to drinking water.

To help UNICEF the IES Goya decided to carry out different acts of solidarity , among which we have to highlight our badges workshop. The students of 2ºBachiller Artes designed 24 different badges , which we later made and sold among students. The sudents of 1st year ESO also made lots of wonderful bracelets , which sold really well. The video "Drops" , one of the educational tools provided by UNICEF, was also projected in our main hall at breaktime. On the whole , it was a great experience in which a great amount of students and teachers got involved. I must say this is not the first time we try to support UNICEF . We are very happy to contribute to their mission.

International Women´s Day

Today we have celebrated the International Women´s Day at school. One of the acts which took place at break time was the projection of this video. I must say it was our language assistant , Laura Krebs , the one who found this wonderful video file on Youtube. Some of our students have already seen this video in class. And probably most of you managed to see it this morning. However, I decided to upload it just in case you missed it. Enjoy it .
