Ichasagua Secondary School was proud to welcome three French teachers from the Collège Pierre-Auguste Renoir in Ferriéres-en-Gàtinais who visited our educational centre on an international exchange program called Erasmus+(KA101) funded with support from the European Commission. They aim to observe our teaching practice and our implication in a varied range of projects related to mediation, equality, recycling and sustainability among others, so that they can be implemented at their own school.
This key action program will lead to another project which involves not only teachers’ but also some French and Canarian students’ mobility. The name of the project is “Co-responsible”: our European identity, our engagement-365 days to fulfil it” which will be developed within two years has also been funded by the European Commission.
We have carried out an extracurricular activity of learning and coexistence in English, with students of 2nd and 3rd ESO CLIL. A five-day program was developed from 20 to 24 May with the company Naturenglish, at the facility they have in Siguenza. Students had the opportunity to make and enjoy different activities related to ADVENTURE/ NATURE, SPORT and HISTORY :
– Climbing and Abseiling – climbing up our outdoor climbing wall, this climbing activity is a great team building experience for the children as they love to encourage each other to the top.
-Survival – With the shelter activity, we take the children into the bushlands around navacerrada and teach them about survival.
–Orienteering – The children will have a number of coordinates they need to find on the map, they will be separated into teams, shown how to use a compass.
–Zorb soccer is definitely one of the most exciting games of 2017, and the huge inflatable balls are perfect for our outdoor nature camps.
–Hockey – Field Hockey is a game played on a turfed field between two teams each whose object is to direct a ball into the opponent’s goal
–Fencing – The fencing activity is our chance to find the next Zorro. The children will be taught all the basic offensive and defensive moves in Fencing.

Fantastic work done by our students of 3rd ESO CLIL at the Storytelling Days of the CEP Tenerife South held at the SIEC of San Isidro. Several High Schools and Primary Schools were able to participate in these days where the students have been the real protagonist: our works «Be Colorful to Be Happy» and «Adventure to Las Vegas» have been very fondly welcomed. Here’s a taste of a magical day. Thanks to our Ichasagua High School and Tenerife South CEP for making possible this type of activities that serve as motivation to communicate in English.
On April 11, 2019 the students from 3rd ESO went on a hiking excursion to visit the volcanic sites at ‘Chinyero’ and ‘Arenas Negras’. The group hiked for several hours on this beautiful day, with clear views of Teide, exploring the natural site. It was a physical challenge but all enjoyed the comradery of their friends and classmates.
