Reading Club with families


Story sessions with parents and grandparents strengthen school community and enrich children´s knowledge through intergenerational learning and exploring cultural stories. Many partner schools have migrant children, familiar stories from their own background boost their interest and motivation in learning.

Meeting with an author


Heriberto Cruz is a singer who gives life to Canarian painter Antonio Padrón´s work, with his project songs " Canciones al óleo".

He visited our library on 23rd April,  World Book Day.

It was a pleasure to listen to  his songs and join his singing, a good opportunity to encourage children to create more poems and paintings and  improving their Communicative  and Artistic Competences.

Emotions obviuously arose and we all spent a very enjoyable time.



  "Niña de las mariposas" was our favourite song at first, but slowly we all became in love with other songs.



We ended up visiting the painter´s house museum and creating many poems and paintings!
