I couldn’t believe my eyes…

This happened at the end of summer , when I had already finished all my exams . I lived in Najera , a small town in La Rioja , but not for a long time : my mother and I had to go to go to live in Calahorra because of my mother’s job .So , she had already rente dan apartment and , sometimes , she travelled to Calahorra to leave some of our things in our new home .
That day , a normal summer day , she was going to carry some stuff to Calahorra , helped by my grandmother .I have to say something that will be important in this story : I used t olive in the fourth floor , and my grandmother lived in the first one .
She and my mother were going to spend the night in Calahorra .I couldn’t go with them because it was September and I had some recuperation exams the next day .

I’m definitely not a lucky girl . Stupidly , I decided to go for a walk with my grandmother’s dog .It was very funny until I realised that I had no keys .But I remembered that my uncle probably had a copy , so I felt relaxed again and kept playing with the dog .
Then , I went to my uncle’s house to ask for the keys , but nobody answered .That’s when I began to remember the horrible truth : my mother had told me that he still wasn’t back from his trip to some stupid place that I couldn’t remember…

A Little worried , I went to my Street and began asking the neighbours if they had a key of my house . None of them had one .I felt the urge of giving myself a facepalm . What was I going to do alone , all night , with a dog too small to hurt anything bigger than a rat (unless it was a really huge rat) and worst of all , without my school books ? Would I be murdered ? Would I fail my exams ? What would I do with the dog ? I couldn’t enter the school with him the next day , even if I survived that night .My paranoid and dramatic personality started imagining the most horrible scenarios . I felt like the main carácter of a horror movie .Only the dog biting me playfully but showing very little control on his own strengh kept me in the real world .

After boiling my brain trying to find a way to enter my house , I thought about visiting a friend of my mother .I didn’t know if she was traveling , but she was my only hope .She wouldn’t have any copy of the keys , but I would be safe for the night .The only problema was that she lived far , in Uruñuela…

I went to her house , hoping she would be there , attacked by that crazy hyperactive dog which wanted to play and kept running everywhere and biting my feet .Unluckily , my mother’s friend wasn’t there .She was probably enjoying the sun at a beautiful beach , while I stood alone with the night already falling , a crazy dog and no school books .I swore and cursed the dog , Calahorra , my grandmother , my neighbours , my mother , the keys , myself , all the world…

I made my way back and decided to try to hide somewhere and hope no crazy murderer would find me .I finally arrived to Nájera and crossed sadly my Street .Then , I started wondering where to go , when I saw suddenly the dog looking at me with a hopeful look in his eyes .He was probably hungry and knew that I usually had dog treats in my pockets .

I put one hand in my pocket to give him some food , and felt something metallic .When I looked at it , I couldn’t believe my eyes and hesitated between anger and relief .

Finally , I hadn’t forgotten the blasted keys .They had been there . All the time .

Again , I wanted to give myself a ‘’facepalm’’ .And that time I did it , to the shock and amazement of the few people that were near me , and of the dog , who was still waiting for his treat…

It’s never too late

We were 15, Emma and I thought about our journeys in the future. We were always in search of adventure. We signed in at all camps and trips. We looked extreme sports too, rafting, mountain climbing, hiking in trails. But when we got to Bachelor our lives were separated. She went to London to study and I went to Barcelona. I kept an album with photos of the places we wanted to visit. One of the places that caught my attention were the Niagara Falls, an amazing destination. I was 32 at this time. There is still time to travel and live adventures. I searched her phone in my old diary may be she hadn’t changed it. I phoned her but other voice answered me. Her daughter I supposed, she looked sad. I asked for Emma but to my surprise she had died in an accident two years ago. I will not give up. I took a plane and a helicopter and in few hours I stood at the falls. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I set foot there. The view was unbelievable. The light of the sunset painted that amazing landscape with warm colours. I breathed deeply and I remembered Emma. She would have loved to be there with me, climbing the Niagara Falls had always been her dream. Tears were running down my cheeks, many memories were running in my mind.

A person that I admire is Aurora she is my basketball coach. She has an average height, her hair is brown and short, she is about forty two years old but she appears less. She has got two daughters: Sandra and Carmen, they are very good playing basketball like her mother.
Aurora loves playing basketball. She starts playing basketball when she was a child. I admire Aurora because she is always happy and she never gives up. When we lose a match she encourages us. She has a lot of energy and she is very fun. Without Aurora the trainings would not be the same.
Aurora works in a school she is the physical education teacher. The name of the school is San Andrés.
For me Aurora is the best coach that I had. Because with Aurora I always learn a lot of things.

Como en cursos anteriores nuestro centro ha colaborado con el Banco de Alimentos. Es una actividad que venimos desarrollando desde hace años. Este año en concreto se ha realizado la semana que va del 3 al 10 de febrero. Gracias a la colaboración del centro, alumnos y profesores este año se han recogido 447 kilos de alimentos
 El Banco de Alimentos es una organización sin ánimo de lucro cuyo objetivo es recuperar excedentes alimentarios y redistribuirlos entre las personas necesitadas. Con la operación de recogida de alimentos en nuestro instituto pretendemos despertar el espíritu solidario y ayudar a mitigar la cruel contradicción que se manifiesta en la existencia de excedentes alimenticios y las bolsas de pobreza y marginación existentes en nuestra sociedad.
Los Bancos de Alimentos no entregan comida directamente a los necesitados sino a instituciones caritativas y de ayuda social oficialmente reconocidas que tienen el contacto más cercano con los colectivos necesitados.Son entidades reconocidas oficialmente. 


Como en cursos anteriores vamos a recoger  gafas,  medicinas y  material sanitario (medicinas, material de curas…) y escolar (cuadernos, lapiceros, pinturas…) para los campamentos de refugiados saharauis en Tinduf.
El plazo: hasta el 29 de febrero, ya que en Semana Santa lo llevarán a los campamentos

Muchas gracias de antemano

PROYECTO: Guardería La piruleta
Marina Chivite Jiménez, Adrian Grijalba Martinez, Lorena Virto Ausejo, Karina Prado Jaya y Nelida Torrez Rueda. Grado Superior de Educación Infantil . Tutora: Olga García

El proyecto va enfocado a la creación de una guardería y ludoteca en el centro comercial del Corte Inglés de Pamplona.

La mañana estaría dedicada a las funciones de guardería y la tarde a ludoteca . Los horarios flexibles.

PROYECTO: Paso a Paso
Minerva Garrido Benito, Guillermo Ruiz Benito, Souhayla Tarfy Er Raoui, Saray Gutierrez Patiño y Carlota Jiménez Sharma.Tutora: Olga García

Paso a paso es un centro de estimulación temprana tanto para niños con necesidades en ese ámbito como para los que no las tienen pero quieren mejorar. Estaría enfocado a bebés entre 3 y 36 meses y lo ubicarían en el centro comercial ARCCA de Calahorra. La propuesta de estos alumnos del IES Valle del Cidacos contemplaría además jornadas mensuales con los padres para que pudiesen aprender determinados ejercicios para hacer con sus niños en casa. Con horarios flexibles aportaría un lugar también donde dejar a los más pequeños mientras se realizan determinados recados.
PROYECTO: El baúl de las sonrisas
Andrea López Peña, Maria Dolores Munárriz Pérez, Sandra Aragón Subero y Raquel Arellano García. Tutora: Olga García
‘El baúl de las sonrisas’ está enfocado para los niños que pasan largas estancias en los hospitales. El proyecto de estas jóvenes calagurritanas consiste en una empresa de animación que pasaría entre dos y tres días por semana por los diferentes hospitales de la zona (han abarcado La Rioja, Navarra y Aragón). “Nos encontramos con que este tipo de servicios se realizan en momentos puntuales del año, pero no semana a semana”, explican. La idea es poder realizar talleres con los más pequeños y además servir de respiro a las familias que tienen que estar día y noche con ellos.
