They Mayoress of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, opened the exhibition with words of praise for Aloha College’s strong position in the community, and for its constant encouragement of pupils’ talent and creativity. All those present agreed that the SNAPJAM exhibition, prepared by Sophie, Natasha, Ana, Philip, Jaime, Anita and Marta was an inspiration to all.

Year 3 trip to Marbella

As part of their Sociales studies Year 3 children visited Marbella on Monday 26 April. During their visit to the Town Hall they were able to sit in the official chambers where debate and voting take place. They were welcomed by the Mayoress, Mrs Angeles Muñoz, and had their photograph taken with her, to make this day even more memorable.

Spanish Book Day

To celebrate Spanish Book Day, we chose Francisco Ibáñez and his most famous comic characters, Mortadelo and Filemón. Children researched his work and on the big day, Friday 23 April, they were able to dress up as one of these characters, who have retained their popularity for more than 50 years.
