December Celebration Assemblies

PorEL Centro Inglés

Dic 21, 2021

Our December Celebration Assemblies have focused on kindness and generosity, this month´s and last´s ECI Pupil Values. With Christmas just around the corner, it is important to remember that these values are not just about giving and receiving gifts but how we can be kind to and generous with our family and friends as well as our pets by simply being present in their lives and dedicating time to them.

Pupils were reminded that being kind and generous contributes not only to other people´s happiness but also to our own. This month´s Action for Happiness December Kindness calendar gives us many ideas about how we can be kind:

We also spoke about the importance of being kind to our environment. Our representatives from the Environment Committee (Aula de Sostenibildad), joined Ms Smith in presenting this year´s environmental focus, that of the significance of climate change in all of our lives and how it is important for each one of us to play our part in re-using what we can as well as recycling and reducing waste. The reps also highlighted that although we might think that vehicle emissions are the highest contributor to climate change, we tend to forget how much damage the textile industry is causing to the environment. As a school community, the collection of clothes which we no longer wear for Madre Coraje will contribute to reducing waste.

As always, we also celebrated many achievements:
