A day to celebrate the academic achievements of all Alegra students
The End of Course Party for the students from MYP1 to PD2 has been an opportunity to celebrate the academic growth of the students during a year filled with extraordinary challenges for all.
The beginning of the ceremony was commenced by the singing of the Hymn of Alegra by the students of the Secondary Choir.
During her speech, Vicky Muller, Director of Alegra, took advantage of this special moment to remember that “Alegra is a dream that has come true and that has only just begun, these first 10 years have been marked by 10 “stars” who have guided the way of the school: British, international, Christian, digital, artistic, family, musical, joyful, innovative, helpful. We have reached the first summit of our journey,” stressed the director.
Then, Militza Hernandez, Coordinator of the MYP and PD stage, addressed a few words to both families and students: “I want us to have an important reflection together where it is essential we understand this awards ceremony seeks to recognise the work of the students in different areas throughout the academic year. The students who did not win an award this year, we also want to congratulate all of you and give you our sincere congratulations because you have made a huge effort during a particularly difficult year.”
The awarded students received different recognitions (The Most Outstanding and The Best Progress) from the heads of department of each subject. In addition, the traditional Alegra flags were awarded: Academic Excellence, Speech & Debate, Sports, action and service, and the Spirit of Alegra.
The students who did not win an award this year, we also want to congratulate all of you and give you our sincere congratulations because you have made a huge effort during a particularly difficult year.”
The best part of the afternoon was the opportunity for the parents to dive into the world of their daughters with a special tour by the PD2 students through the building and its different classrooms, both thematically and for individual courses.
The parents enjoyed visiting the biology laboratory, the chemistry laboratory, the music classroom, and the industrial design classroom, while hearing first-hand the experiences of the students and could see examples of student work from this year.
Likewise, parents who wanted to visit their daughters’ classrooms had the possibility to do so with them.
The music: Zarzuela & Pop
More highlights of this day included the performance of a Zarzuela by the MYP students and by the PD1 and MYP 5 bands.
Review The Opera Day Exhibition
Despite the impossibility of representing the traditional opera, at Alegra, we wanted to pay tribute to the operas of years past by hosting a costume exhibition of each of the operas performed by the students over the past years. It has been a wonderful opportunity to relive the best moments of the school for its 10th anniversary.
