Book Fair

Today the children were visited by the firefighters of Madrid, and this time they brought their firetruck to show the children. We were taught what it takes to be a firefighter, and what an important service they provide to everyone in the city. Then the children were shown around the firetruck and watched the fire hose 'in action'. A very exciting start to the day! 

Donating our Harvest Food

Today the kids had the chance to learn about charity and donating what we don't need, to those who need it. After collecting food all month, we had plenty to donate to the Parroquia Sta. Maria Magadalena. There, they learnt about why it is important we consider those less fortunate than ourselves and how we can help those in need. We'd like to thank the parents of Kings for their generous donations.
