Dear Diary…
Monday
I had great fun enjoying in the afternoon activities on the ski trip. On Monday we visited the city of Alhambra. We walked around the city and found out amazing stories and facts. We learned the story of Granada’s civilization and how it developed to become how it is now. I mostly enjoyed exploring secret paths which led to beautiful buildings full of history.
Tuesday
The first day on the slopes I put my skis and ski boots on and set off to the snow. I got into my ski group and made my way to the ski lifts. The fun had just started… we laughed as people flew out of the skiing lifts. They got to their feet and all the groups set off for the mountains.
After a long day of skiing on Tuesday afternoon we visited the cultural areas of the ancient town. What I enjoyed best about the city was a river called Rio Genil which had a very interesting history behind it. In Medieval times they found gold in the river.
Wednesday
All instructors were incredibly kind and patient. Two hours of skiing happily and then we had lunch and after that we had our last ski lesson of the day. We left thinking of the awesome but exhausting day we had just had.
We went to the famous Science park in Granada. It was my favourite thing. It had all type of attractions and games to help us learn new facts about Science. It had an area about mummies and a whale heart.
Thursday
The snowboarders went to the snow park and did amazing stunts. The beginners went to ski on the green slopes and the advanced group went to ski on the black slopes. The more advanced skiers had an amazing view of Africa from the top of the mountain. It was freezing and windy!
On Thursday after our last day skiing we came back to the hotel and packed our suitcases. We were all really sad about leaving the charming city of Granada on Friday.

Last week, 10 staff from Morna gave up their weekend to attend the annual National Association of British Schools in Spain conference in Valencia. As well as including important updates about child protection, safeguarding and educationally related laws, there were also a number of training workshops designed to help teachers improve teaching and learning in schools. These workshops not only benefitted the staff that attended, but the information was also shared with staff throughout our school.
We are always looking to improve at Morna, and we make a major investment in the training and development of our staff each year.
The NABSS conference is one small part of this, but the fact that so many staff were keen to attend, shows their commitment to this process.
Our staff are always looking to do what is best for the students of our school, and this is another example of that.
Have a great weekend.

Last week, Y10 students visited the “Parque Natural de las Salinas” with their Spanish teachers. They learned about the sea turtle species which have come to the island to lay their eggs in the last years. Students did a simulation of the nest translocation protocol that is carried out by environment agents and scientists when a turtle trace is found.
