Cosmocaixa Science Museum!

Tuesday 25th November was this term's 'excursion day' for Mestral. 3rd & 4th Primary and 3rd & 4th ESO had an exciting day at the Cosmocaixa Science Museum in Barcelona. The Primary boys received a guided tour about the origins of life on our planet from our excellent guide, Raúl.They saw some very interesting and strange creatures, which, over many millions of years, had started life in the oceans and had ended up on land!

Mestral library lending service

For several years now, Mestral has had a daily slot of half an hour during which students can either attend Holy Mass or spend time reading. Pictured here are the boys from 4th Primary during their Thursday reading session, when they can go down to the library to take out a book for a week. 
Of course, we know that reading broadens the mind, makes us more literate and helps us no end with our studies!

Christmas is coming!

Preparations are well underway for this year's Christmas Festival in Mestral, which will take place on Thursday 15th December. Pictured here are the teachers preparing to record a song for the second edition of our Christmas CD, which will be on sale on the day of the festival. We thank Mr Martinez, our musical director, and our sound engineer, Roger, for their invaluable help!

Castanyada 2016!

On Friday 28th October, we devoted our time and energies to doing various activities connected with this year's 'Castanyada'. The boys from Primary received a visit from two very generous 'castanyeres', and spent the morning decorating  their classrooms with all things autumn. Sr Martinez spent his lunchtime roasting chestnuts, which were given out in the afternoon in the playground. The boys also learnt how to play some new team games and finished the day with a traditional snack of chestnuts and 'panellets'!
Now, after a long weekend for All Saints, it's business as usual and we're back to work!
