Plain sailing

05sep2018-pablo-sailing18-year-old Pablo Garcia Cranfield, one of our recent leavers, picked up a silver medal at the 420 International Class World Championships. He was paired with 20-year-old Elías Aretz at the Newport, Rhode Island event and the Spanish duo finished second to New Zealand's Seb Menzies and Blake McGlashan. Pablo will be continuing his studies at the Southampton Solent University, reading Sport and Exercise Therapy, which is a perfect base for him to prepare for future Olympic sailing events in the 470 class.

Life Hacks

04jul2018-skillsYou learn something new everyday, right? Wrong, if you're a student at The British School of Gran Canaria. As our recent Skills Day illustrates.

Here, we learnt how to dance the cha cha cha by following in the footsteps of our funkiest members of staff: Ms Kloos, Ms Lahmanes, and Ms Stacey. Before they showed us how to move and groove in an altogether more contemporary fashion. One of the most memorable skills sessions, however, was with our nattiest-dressed teacher, Mr Sherwood, who revealed how to tie the perfect tie.

The Hunger Games

03jul2018-hungerYears 7 to 10 made their way to Telde athletics stadium on Tuesday 26th June for an important charity event. Students were sponsored by friends and family to run/walk 20 laps of the track. We are proud to announce that we raised over €3000 for Action against Hunger, one of the many charities we work with on the island.

Big Day Out

03jul2018-day-outOn Thursday 28th June, years 7 to 10 headed down to the south west's Puerto Rico, where we spent the day on the beach. After a long bus journey, we were eager to stretch our legs and the Escuela de Vela Joaquín Blanco Torrent instructors soon got us moving. After dividing us into three groups, we played sand games and then did some kayaking. By far the most popular activity, however, was paddle boarding as everyone tried to push each other off their boards. With the hot weather, it was a great way to cool off.

United in football fun

03jul2018-footballOn Thursday 21st June, BSGC Tafira met up with BSGC South school for a challenging final football round of matches for the Primary football teams. It was an incredibly hot morning but players tackled the challenge head on, breaking for lots of water!!! Whilst the Tafira Year 3 and 4 team and Year 5 and 6 boys won their games against their southern peers, the players from the South put in a committed display. Roll on next season's rematch.
