DANCE OF THE RIBBONS AT COLÓN THEATRE

And the great day arrived! Last Monday, the 30th of May, we had a show at Colón Theatre with other 3 schools: CEE. María Mariño, CEIP. San Pedro de Visma and Conservatory of Music. We all celebrated a day together in an activity called "Art for Equality", which consisted of a play in Galician,"A farsa do Rei Bululú".
We danced a very difficult traditional dance called "The Dance of the Ribbons". We had to dance around a pole with coloured ribbons, making a plait around it. One mistake and... But everything went perfect and we all had a great time, sharing nerves and new experiences with the kids of the other schools. And with live music!!!
Here is a memory of that exciting day...

A LITTLE BITE OF THE BIG APPLE

Today we could have a little bite of the Big Apple because we received the visit of Isabel González, a lady from New York. She talked to us about this fascinating city: its famous buildings, its skyscrapers, its parks and bridges, ... and she taught us a funny clapping song: "Miss Mary Mack". Here is a memory of her visit.
Thank you so much for your visit, Isabel! We hope to see you next year...

GALICIAN LETTERS´ DAY

Happy Galician Letters´  Day, this year dedicated to Manuel María, a wonderful poet. I´m afraid I cannot find any documents about him in English, but I´ve found a beautiful video made in a school in Northern Ireland. All the pupils recite a famous poem by Rosalía de Castro in both languages, Galician and English. Have a look...
And do not ever forget that "our language is the key to open the world", as Manuel María says:


A fala. Manuel María
O idioma é a chave
coa que abrimos o mundo:
o salouco máis feble,
o pesar máis profundo.

O idioma é a vida,
o coitelo da dor,
o murmurio do vento,
a palabra de amor.

O idioma é o tempo,
é a voz dos avós
e ese breve ronsel
que deixaremos nós.

O idioma é un herdo,
patrimonio do pobo,
maxicamente vello,
eternamente novo.

O idioma é a patria,
a esencia máis nosa,
a creación común
meirande e poderosa.

O idioma é a forza
que nos xungue e sostén.
¡Se perdemos a fala
non seremos ninguén!

O idioma é o amor,
o latexo, a verdade,
a fonte da que agroma
a máis forte irmandade.

Renunciar ao idioma
é ser mudo e morrer.
¡Precisamos a lingua
se queremos vencer!

Last Friday we celebrated Galician Letters´ Day at school. We saw a fantastic show with songs, poems, plays, ... ,  all in Galician, our language, and all by Manuel María, the poet honoured this year. And we participated in the concert with a traditional dance: The Dance of the Ribbons. It is a very difficult dance because the dancers have to make a plait around a pole and the minimum mistake is terrible... But everything went prefect, just as well. Here is a memory...
