You must research the phenomenon of the ‘botellón’ in Spain and write an essay in English, giving as much detail and as many statistics as you can.  In your assignment you should aim to answer the following questions:

  • What is a ‘botellón’?
  • Why is it such a problem in Spain?
  • Are the people involved in this activity fulfilling their rights and responsibilities as citizens of a society?
  • What would the young people say to defend what they are doing?  Would the local people agree?  Who would be in the right?
  • What could be done to solve the problem?
  • In your opinion, how does it compare with binge drinking in England?

 

You can produce your essay using word or powerpoint.  Remember to include pictures, facts and figures and lots of information.

Spanish Exchange Visit to Darlington, March 2011

3 04 2011

On Tuesday 22nd March a group of 19 Spanish students and 2 teachers, from our twin school ‘Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados’ in Ibi, arrived in Darlington for a week long exchange visit.  The pupils were hosted by Carmel pupils from Y8 – Y12.  The students visited Durham, Beamish museum and York during their stay.  They also spent a morning in the college and participated in some Y8 Spanish lessons where they taught Carmel pupils some traditional Spanish songs.

The visit was rounded off with a fabulous farewell disco, with the highlight of the night being the ‘Macarena’!  The pupils were sad to say ‘adiós’ but are all looking forward to keeping in touch with their new friends and hopefully having the chance to return to Spain in the near future.

Read an article about the exchange on the Spanish pupils’ school website:
