"The little team"

This is a lovely video about a kids football team from Catalonia. The kids are really funny, and they remind us that this is what sport should be like!

Watch this and see what happens!

The guy who fell off his bike wasn't injured in the end.

The Rugby world Cup has started!

Many people,(me included) think that Rugby is a more beautiful game than football.
The Rugby world cup has just started in new Zealand, and here's a video sequence of Jonah Lomu, perhaps the best player of all time.
Enjoy the rugby and the music!!

Did you see the Tour of Spain?

Last Friday was a great day for everyone, for Igor Anton, for all cycling fans,even for students of La Merced , as they went home early.
Great scenes at the top of the mountain, as the wall of fans seperated to let the riders through. Just like the Tour de France!
Check out this commentators pronunciation!

Solidarity with our friends in America.

Ten years ago, something truly awful happened in the U.S.A. Some people say; "These horrible things are happening every day in other parts of the world and nobody cares"

This is true, but it's also true that "charity begins at home", which means that we start to care about the world outside of our personal lives by caring about the people who are closest to us.

The best in Bizkaia!!

Here's the student with the best Selectividad and Bachillerato marks in Bizkaia, and wow, she's one of us!!
She got a perfect 10 in 2 subjects and a 9,95 in English!
I'd like to know what mistake is worth 0.5%. Perhaps she forgot a comma or something.
Check out the links to the newspaper interviews that she has given. They're on the school web page in the "Noticias" section.
Well done Helena, and the very best of luck for the future!

No matter how you feel....

Well, However you feel;

Or perhaps you feel like this

Or perhaps you feel like this poor little thing!

(Remember to give the new little ones a nice smile when you see them over the next few days!)

Which one are you?

Do you feel like her?, or like him?

or like them?
