Last day

Today is our last day at the camp. In the morning we woke up a little tired after the last night party. We had breakfast and it was yummy! After that, we finished doing the dossiers, tidied up our bedrooms and packed our bags. Then we presented our projects in front of everybody. The monitors gave us a certificate and we gave them medals. Before lunch, we played a game about rivers. We had a delicious and special lunch and then we had some free time and gave a medal and said thank you to the staff of Can Sans. Finally, we waited for the bus and went back to school. It was a very nice experience and a beautiful camp. We love it!!

We saw a salamander walking on the stairs outside the house!

Second day

We had a very nice experience with Home to Home. On Wednesday the 4th we went for a hike to the town. It was very beautiful because we went through lots of beautiful fields, with flowers and wild life.
When we got to the town we did some work in our dossiers. Then we did a gymkhana about the town, which incluided questions and finding the answer.
We had fun.
Then at 1mp we went back to the house.

Total English camp is the best camp ever.
Wednesday 4th of April was the birthday of a monitor called Arrian, and it was a lot of fun. We went hiking to the town for all the morning, we went to a park and we did the dossier. To finish we did a treasure hunt. We came back and had a break and continued with an experiment and we played games. The games consisted of baseball, football and basketball. We played each game for 20 minutes each and against each colour group. It was so exciting to play against friends and in the sun. It was a beautiful day!

After dinner at 9:30 we played a night game called “Hierarchy”. At the beginning of the game you start being a seaweed and the objective is to turn into the queen of the sea: a whale. To do so, you have to challenge other people and beat them to get their card. There’s a board that shows all the equivalences. You have to gather 3 seaweed cards to become a sardine. With two sardine cards and one seaweed card you turn into a jellyfish. With two jellyfish cards and one sardine you turn into a shark. Finally, when you get a seaweed, a sardine, a jellyfish and a shark card, you can become a whale. We were working individually but at the same time in teams. We found out that if we worked all together for the same objective, we got to become a whale more easily. In the end, the yellow team won the game gathering 21 whales.

As we informed you, your daughters will have the opportunity to take part in TOTAL ENGLISH CAMP, where they will be able to spend a week outside school speaking in English exclusively. It is a very well-thought activity that we hope will help them improve the oral competence.

This activity is inside the English teaching project but it is also a part of the student formation plan of Les Alzines.

We believe that spending 4 days of total English immersion will be extremely beneficial for students, both for oral communication and personal growth and improvement of virtues like friendship, companionship, generosity, obedience or personal autonomy and we hope everyone can participate.

They will be assisted at all times by native teachers as well as their tutors and English teachers.

All this will be done through a curricular topic of Science, The Water and Plants.

Home to Home (a business which is devoted to the development of educational programme) is in charche of the programming of activities done over these 4 days, the native teachers and the camp house.

We will be leaving school on Tuesday the 3rd of April at 9 in the morning and we will be coming back on Friday the 6th of April at 4:30pm so that the students can take the school bus. The camp house is “Can Sans de Fallines” (Viladesens), 25 km away from Girona.



Students CANNOT bring their phones or other devices that don’t favour student cohabitation. If you need to communicate with your daughters you may contact us to a number we will give you days prior to the camp.

Students need to wear their street clothes. Over the next days we will inform you about the schedules, activities and necessary material.

Depending of the number of students who do not attend Total English Camp there will be different activities in the school so that they can prepare the same topic in a different way.

We would be grateful if your daughters returned the  form signed before the 9th of March.
