European IGCSE Art and Design teachers attend a course at St. Peter’s

This week, St. Peter’s have been holding an International Cambridge course for Art and Design teachers. They are already teaching this subject to prepare their students for the IGCSE Art / Design, but for them, it is important to keep training and further a deep understanding of if.

Teachers who attended the course have been able to:

  • review syllabus and curriculum framework design and the assessment aims
  • learn about updates and changes to the syllabuses, programmes or curriculum frameworks
  • extend their understanding of question papers, marking exercises, examiner feedback and creating their own exam questions for Cambridge O Level, Cambridge IGCSE or Cambridge International AS & A Level

Finally they share a range of approaches to teaching and learning and get to know colleagues from all over Europe.

For the St. Peter’s Scholarship Committee it is a great pleasure to announce that finally Raquel Sánchez Herrera (Pre-U 0), Jerico Adgan (Pre-U 1) and Faith Asilo (Pre-U 1) are the students awarded with the 3rd edition of Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. After one week of class, Raquel, Jerico and Faith feel at home. They really think that these scholarships “are an opportunity. Daring to face the challenge is just the beginning”.

Raquel is from Badalona, and studied at Institut Ventura Gassol until  the last school year. One of her teachers told her about our Scholarships and she had no doubt. Jerico and Faith were studying together in Poble Sec and they saw the announcement of the grants on our website. They have it clear: some day they want to change the world for the better. So, let’s start! Welcome to St. Peter’s School!

This school year the grant honors our former pupil, Andrés Sexto. 

Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships For Excellence. 2017-18 In honour of Andrés Sexto

This year our Scholarships for Excellence bears the name of our former Pupil Andrés Sexto. Here we can see Andrés when he was a student at St. Peter’s and a recent picture taken this weekend.

Once again this year, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. These grants are merit-based and aim to support those students who have excellent academic and non-academic achievements. They intend to avoid limited resources being an obstacle to completing the three school years of Pre-U at St. Peter’s School (4th ESO and Bachillerato). There is only one difference in this year’s edition: we have included Pre-U Foundation and thus extended the scholarship to a maximum of three years, depending on the student’s commitment and progress.

Every school year the grant bears the name of a former pupil who stood out, not only for their academic merits but also for other qualities. Andrés Sexto is the former pupil to be honoured by the St. Peter’s Scholarship for Excellence 2017-18.

Andrés graduated at St. Peter’s School on 1993. As the previous honoured former pupils (Tatiana Sisquella and Sean Hartnoll), he always strived to fulfil the projects he believe in, struggled for them and carried them out with enthusiasm. This was the reason why, having finished his studies at the school, he studied Law at ESADE. Later he moved to Madrid where he finally passed the Entrance Exams to the solicitor profession in 2002. He has served as a solicitor in Galicia and Barcelona since then.

St. Peter’s Scholarships for Excellence would like to pay homage to those students who, like Andrés, are an example of both Excellence and Perseverance. Our first grant recipients agree that these scholarships “are a great opportunity opportunity. Daring to face the challenge is just the beginning”

The students who are already studying at the school find these grants the opportunity to enrich their learning experience. Their new peers help them grow academically and personally.

These young delegates will make it possible. Together they can change the world.

Getting into the Christmas spirit!

Yesterday we enjoyed the last concert of the Christmas season, the Nursery 1 and 2 singalong. And with it we are definitely getting into the Christmas spirit!

As always, all the concerts have shown the enthusiasm, talent and hard work of all our students (and their teacher!).  We have loved every minute of them!
