The La Concha Challenge 2020

Sunday 19th January saw the P.E. Department return to a familiar foe. The La Concha mountain that adorns the skyline of Marbella, from whichever angle you choose to approach, is a domineering and intimidating structure. Mythological folklore has it that it has, in the past, been rechristened the ¨Mother in Law¨ due to her dominating aspect and panoramic, somewhat permanent, surveillance over the entire…

12th Polar Bear - 2019

Throughout time and history the number 12 has always held a special reserve of significance. In the North of Ireland, where I was born, the 12th of July causes annual conjecture, while the knights of the round table felt more secure in this even number. Indeed, as we approached Christmas, the 12 day run up is a historic, annual phenomenon! I suppose therefore we should all have known that the 12th…

Latest News

When Year 6 students were given the brief to their Primary Project back at the end of September, one of the points that was raised was asking them to do something that went beyond the project and the exhibition; to get involved and take action for a sustained period of time and really make a difference. Well, Nicolas and Marcos did just that! For those of you who were lucky enough to come along at…

Asia, Jack, Alvaro, Javi, Pat, Tom and Giuseppe said they were overwhelmed to see the long queue of people when they got off the minibus; amazed by the variety of nationalities of families they gave food parcels to and humbled by the delight on the faces of the families receiving…

EIC Red Cross Drive 2018

Latest News

This morning marked the culmination of our Red Cross Drive for this year. With barely no space left on the main hall stage, it was clear that this year's drive had been a success. However, the scale of the donations and the 24% increase from last year, was way beyond everyone's expectations. Quite rightly this morning there was just enough time to invite onto the stage Karoliina, Christine, Caroline…
