Christopher Columbus was born in 1451 in Genoa, a city on the north-west coast of Italy. At this time Genoa was a very important commercial port. The young Christopher often went to the port and watched the ships leave: they seem to go under the horizon. May people at this time thought the world was flat, but others - Columbus included- believed that the world was round. Columbus wanted to test this idea.

One of our students was told this first story by her grandmother and it goes as follows:
Years ago, in a town called Zarracos it was said that every night some lights were seen. It was said that they were the souls of the dead people who weren't free from sin yet and came here to let it know to the living.
(Marta Taín, 2nd ESO Group B)
This other story is about the well-known "Santa Compaña":
It's said that the Holy Company appears in the crossroads to call the soul of those who will soon leave the world of the living. Dogs start howling, announcing its visit, cats flee in terror and its step stops the noise of animals in the forest. A silence is interrupted by the ringing of a bell and funeral prayer beads. It's said that the person who is visited by the Holy Company will die within a year.
(Andrea Goyanes, 2nd ESO Group B)

I am uploading some of the pictures taken last Friday 4th March during three of my lessons. They are from groups A and B 2nd ESO and from group A 4th ESO.
I would have liked to upload some of our teachers but unfortunately I didn't take any. However, you have plenty of them in the Gallery of the school's website. Have a look and enjoy them!

Ned's real troubles with the police began when his mother was arrested for the shooting of Constable Fitzpatrick, who was later dismissed from the police force as “a liar”. Fitzpatrick was in charge of the Greta Police Station for a few days and had been warned to stay away from the Kellys - a warning he ignored. He went to arrest Dan Kelly for horse stealing; Dan had just returned home from gaol. At the hut, Fitzpatrick assaulted Kate, Ned's older sister. During this affray, Ellen Kelly shot Fitzpatrick in the wrist but because she wanted to avoid any repercussions, tended Fitzpatrick's wounds, fed him, gave him something to drink and sent him on his way, with an understanding that no more would be said.
(Jerilderie Letter, p. 19)
The Kelly Gang were declared outlaws after raids on the National Bank at Euroa and Faithful Creek station in December 1878. The sum of £8000 was put on their collective heads for robbery and murder. A further £4000 was added by the Government of Victoria. In February 1879, Ned and his Gang bailed up the Bank of New South Wales at Jerilderie.

Valentine's Day started over two thousand years ago, as a winter festival, on 15th February. On that day, pagans asked their gods to give them good fruit and vegetables, and strong animals.

I've just bumped into this interesting talk about the problems of our current food system. I'm still amazed, not only for the contents of the speech but for the fact that the speaker is an 11 year-old boy! Birke Baehr has the clearest ideas about life and he wants to become an organic farmer. If you want to know why you'll have to see this video.
