Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

The summer, at least the summer holidays, is coming to an end and so is party time!! So now we have a warm-up period before classes and routines begin. You'd better get ready.

And the party is over, especially for our students beginning Bachillerato. It is the time for truth, honesty and commitment as in two years' time they will be taking the Selectivity exams.

Here are some articles for you to read connected with the summer holidays:

Anyway, that shouldn't be a problem as it is also high time to congratulate those students who have been working this summer. This is the summer scoreboard so far!

  1. I think summer holidays are a good time to take a break from the highschool, also we can´t stay the whole summer wthout doing anything but it doesn´t mean you have to spend your holidays working, unless you haven´t passed all the subject and you have to carry with the consecuencies.
    However some parents thing that they have to emrol their children in summer camps wihtout even takeing into account into their children opinion.
    In my opinion the best way to take the holydays is to work only in the morning or the afternoon and maybe take a break on Sundays.

  2. Holidays is a time that is to rest from high school, school or work because it is over, although it is not always to be resting, you also have to do more things like doing sports, review the subjects so that when you start the new course you remember what you had learned, at school and in the institute send homework for the summer, some people during the summer do nothing but those people will have it harder for the following year not than the people who do homework because they have more easy.

  3. Summer is to rest, enjoy and have fun, because during the course you worked well and got good grades.
    Summer is not just for rest, you can also do things to remember things from the previous course and not forget them.
    The people who have left some subject for the summer, must study it during the summer to recover it in September.
    Some teachers send homework during the summer and so during the course you have more time to study that subject, if you do those homework during the summer.
    Those who do nothing during the summer will be more difficult than for people who have done their homework

  4. We are all looking forward to summer to stop studying and have fun with friends, but really summer is not just for rest and for fun, because summer we have to remember the things studied during the year so as not to forget them. If in your case you have suspended any subject you will have to study a little more to be able to recover it in September and you will have less time to enjoy. There are some teachers who care more about your teaching and send us homework to do during the summer and that they do so that we do not forget what we have seen in the year and start the new course on the right foot

  5. Do you need to enjoy for the last days and make a party, because, later you need to study

  8. Summer is my favourite season. Also, I was born in this season and I celebrate my birthday with a lovely party.
    I enjoy a lot with some hobbies, for example , going to the beach , swimming in the swimming pool with my friends or my family. I love eating ice creams.
    In the summer I usually go hiking in my country. At night , I sometimes go to the cinema or walking with my friends.
    I love summer because I have a lot free time and I don't have exams.The best is that I don't have to get up early.

  9. I love summer!
    I have a photo from my last holiday in Marina D’or, Castellón. My parents and me are in the photo. We are in a jacuzzi because we are in a spa. There is a bath with ver y hot water, but there is a with very cold water too. We are in the jacuzzi because we need to relax. We are smiling because we are having a great time.

  10. Summer is the best season of the year for many people because most of them have holidays. In summer the days are longer and hotter. We, the children have time for everything, watching TV, playing game, playing in the street with your friends, going to the beach, going to the pool and even studying a little.
    This summer is different from other summers because we have to wear a mask, and on the beach we have to keep a safety distance of 3 meters between an umbrella and another. I love summer because there is no need to study, it is time to enjoy with family and friends.
