Visit to the Guggenheim museum. Being art critics

On Friday December 13th, students visited Guggenheim museum and they became critic arts for a day.They followed the explanations given by a guide about the museum. All the information they received was used to prepare their activities.They chose nine different pieces of art , sculptures and building and gave a brief presentation of those pieces of art as well as the author of them . After their visit, they expressed their opinion about them, how they felt when they saw them, their impressions.

When they visit us in May, both schools, the Greek and the Basque students will visit the museum and they will be given those critics to understand how our students saw those pieces of art and their feelings and we will ask them to write theirs as well.

Elexakde students also prepared sketches  of them.Then all the critics were collected in a digital newsletter and presented to all the classes so that the students who didn´t go to the visit could enjoy it and chose the one they  liked the most .

February 3rd 2019 The International Day of The Basque Language

Today we are celebrating The International Day of The Basque Language .This day means an open window to the present and the future of the Basque Language.
Last year in our blog we explained why this day is celebrated on 3rd of December.
I invite you to read it and learn why.

In Elexalde BHI we have also celebrated this special day and we have organised different activities such as different games, two Basque dances, and two traditional Basque sports.

One  of the dances we have danced has been zazpi jauzi which we have also shared with our Greek partners. At the same time, this dance will be performed by students from both schools when Katerini students visit us.

Students have also competed in two traditional Basque sports " sokatira" and " txingak"

The Basque language  is part of our heritage and identity . Besides, Basque is the oldest living language in Europe.It is a lively and ancient language whose origin, today is still unknown.
We hope you enjoy today as we have done it!!
