Christmas Newsletter

It’s been a great term, thank you to all of you who have helped make learning so positive and fun.

Just be Sassi’s Sabrina came back and gave an informative workshop pushing our students out of their comfort zone so they felt real interview nerves. Afterwards she gave them tips and strategies to deal with them.

A2 Psychology students have talked about Anorexia Nervosa and tried different learning styles to present the information they studied. They explored the underlying causes, possible explanations and treatments for anorexia.

We love how supportive our students are of each other. Helping with homework and always making new students feel welcome and comfortable.

AS Art and Design students recently visited the subtle imaginary landscapes in pencil by José María Díez in the ‘Somos Paisaje’ exhibit at the MA Art Contemporaneo Gallery in Palma. There was great excitement when opening their new student packs as they get ready to start their independent portfolio work for Component 1!

We had a great afternoon out at the SRT University fair. Students had the chance to meet and speak with representatives from International Universities and find out about different courses and career paths.
Thank you to everyone who gave so generously to this year’s Radio One Mallorca Charity appeal. Toys that you donated will be given to children’s charities and the food and toiletries to Age Concern.

We were lucky enough to receive a visit from Dr Daniel Christian Wahl who opened an interesting discussion about why we need to go beyond sustainability and why sustainability is still very important. He tried to answer the many questions of our students and listened to their fears. The presentation was filmed and students were interviewed by Antoine Bonsorte, who is making a documentary aimed to give young people a voice on Ecological matters.

After a long term and lots of hard work from both Staff and students we has some fun at our last Enrichment of the year with silly Christmas games. Getting students to have have fun and consolidate friendships.


We also had plenty of Christmas cheer at our community lunch. Thanks to all of you who brought in dishes. Staff started their Christmas holiday with tapas, feeling proud of what we have achieved  and of the young people we are lucky enough to get to spend so much time with and that inspire us to do more every day.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season!
