We all knew this last day would be a very special one for all of us because it meant the end of an awesome week full of new experiences, new friends, and new impressions making us getting closer to each other.
We started at 9 o’clock in the morning celebrating the medal ceremony. Everyone from each country went on the stage where we were presented with a medal by the teacher for participating in the project, while the song “We Are the Champions” was making feel us like real winners. Five people were representing each country by carrying the torch to the stage, and then they all blew out the flame to represent the end of the Olympic games that we had been playing on Wednesday. Then Father Pedro Cabrera gave a speech to thank everyone for coming and taking part in the Comenius project.
Afterwards we all went to the computer rooms to write articles about our week in Gran Canaria and different topics like fair play, racism, immigration, that are in relation to the 3R’s (Rights, Respect and Responsibility) representing our project.
Finally we were enjoying taking part in a Gymkhana which brought us closer to an African culture.
