Sing like a Canary

06jun2019-dia-canariasAnother year, another Día de Canarías. 2019's fell on Friday 31st May and it provided an opportunity for students and teachers from the British School of Gran Canaria to celebrate the culture we live in during a day packed with fun activities.

In Primary, the day started with storytelling from Year 8, who told the tale of the Garoé and the Drago trees to the little ones. During Secondary assembly, we shared news about the different workshops that were going to take place and listened to the Canarian legends of Doramas and Gara and Jonay.

The day passed by really quickly. The Infants sang and danced to typical Canarian songs, they cooked local dishes and enjoyed traditional games. In Primary, students made Canarian toys and then had their breaths taken away from them by the drama performance at the end of the day.

Secondary students made Canarian crafts, fought bouts of Canarian wrestling, tried their hand at stick fighting, and challenged their brain power with intelligence games. Also, Canarian sweets and drinks were sold in order to raise funds for charity. This money will be used to buy goods for the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria food bank.

Thanks to everybody for making this day such a special occasion.
