Once more we saw the famous rockets, bridges made from spaghetti (capable of sustaining various kilos in weight), 3-metre high towers made out of straws and lots of experiments carried out by our younger pupils in the Chemistry, Physics and Biology labs. Our Year 11 pupils were in charge of the activities. You can see a photo gallery here.

on 11.11.14 (276 reads)

Click to see original Image in a new windowThe architect Fernando Molina, an expert in the construction of temporary installations, paid us a visit last Friday November 7th. With the aid of 30 pupils from Technical Studies, he performed a practical exercise for us: the construction of a project inspired by the Sydney opera house, using plastic pipes and panels and carried out in the open-air amphitheatre that is to be found at the rear of the new building. Our pupils found out how triangulated structures work, what articulated joints are, the universal importance of Technical Drawing, work organization, etc. The photo shows the authors and the final result of their work.

Colegio : A Festive Week at Retamar
on 02.10.14 (460 reads)

Click to see original Image in a new windowThe same as last year, in the next few days we will be celebrating “A Week of Festivities” thereby establishing what is to become a new tradition here at the school, owing to the three special dates that will never fade from our memories.
On October 2nd we celebrate the founding of Opus Dei 86 years ago; the second date is also closely associated with the history of the Work: an unforgettable October 6th when 12 years ago on that day Pope John Paul II was to canonise Saint Josemaría in St. Peter’s Square in Rome and lastly a date so special for Retamar which is October 10th, the day that commemorates the opening of the school 48 years ago. Over the next week we will have films, talks, exhibitions and sports competitions to remind us of these days that are so important to Retamar.
