The school year has come to an end and I am really happy!!!
Why? Because some of our 1º Bachillerato students obtained excellent results at the Official Language School in Motril:
B1 in French: María Béjar, Mª José García, Joaquín García and Andrea Gutiérrez.
B2 in English: Alex Expaña & Andrea Gutiérrez almost got it. They just failed one part, which I'm sure they will pass in September.
And here's our SUMMER SCOREBOARD (click on it and you will see it), where we will be compiling all the comments, projects or anything our students do during the summer time.
I don't know if happiness is genetic or not, but something is for sure there are some people that are naturally more cheerful than others. As well, babies tend to be happier than adults (probably due to all the problems and concerns that we have in mind). Another interesting fact is that grandparents also tend to be happier than parents. It may be due to the fact that they have fewer responsabilities in life.
