35 Aloha College Year 12 pupils enjoyed their lunch last Friday on the summit of “La Concha”. This is a great annual “bonding” trip and gives the pupils a real sense of achievement.
On April 17th 2012, we embarked on a plane to Sardinia, Italy, known for its luxury getaways and breath-taking beaches. Unfortunately, we were there on more serious business; saving the world. As the representatives of Palestine (Claudia Martinez / Regina Segalerva) and Saudi Arabia (Malaika Jose / Martijn de Zeuuw), we attended a very eventful MUN conference in which we discussed the pressing and pivotal issues that concern our economy and our right to free speech. MUN, which stands for Model United Nations, attempts to do just that, emulate the real United Nations in which aspiring young adults get together and debate our world’s current events. It not only provides us with great insight and knowledge to the real world, but it helps shape the young students who will one day become our world’s representatives.
On 24 April the Palacio de Congresos hosted a fabulous exhibition which reflected the artistic progress of our students during the 2 years of their IB Studies. Their work had already been “marked” by the IBO Examiner. The exhibition was inaugurated by Lamiaa Abouelala, herself an exhibiting artist from last year, and the Mayoress Mrs Mª Angeles Muñoz attended and was very impressed by our pupils’ creativity.
