English Radio Mallorca and Bonfire Night
English Radio Mallorca came to our school to celebrate Bonfire Night
Laura Penn and Terry Mott from English Radio Mallorca came to our school on Fri 6th Nov to talk to our students about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night. They gave us some tips on how we could celebrate it at the Mallorca Cricket Club on Sat 7 Nov.
They also talked about their projects on the island, what working at a radio station is like,and they also told us some anecdotes.
When: 6 Nov at 5:00
Where: Room 4
We would like to thank Laura and Terry for having paid us a visit and for the wonderful job they did. The students enjoyed listening to them. We are very lucky to have such good professionals on the island.
The English Department is astounded, amazed, taken aback, flabbergasted, dumbfounded, stunned, shocked, astonished, bowled over and staggered that we have such wonderful friends...
Many popular contemporary verses were written in condemnation of Fawkes. The most well-known verse begins:
Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot,
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Come and join English Radio Mallorca on stage with great music and entertainers at the Mallorca Cricket Club. BBQ, Pie & Peas, Toffee Apples, Chocolate Fountain, Hog Roast and more. Two bonfires and a great firework display. Entrance fee 5 euros with kids under 14 free. Doors open at 6pm.
Pie and Peas:
Unfortunately Nicky Stixx was not able to make it this time. She sent this note. We hope her son Luke will get well soon.
"I'm afraid I have a problem with tomorrow, as much it upsets me, letting people down, I'm sorry to say that my little boy Luke, is very poorly, we have spent the entire morning at the hospital, they have sent us home without an underlined conclusion, but he is not good at all, therefore, I will have to re-schedule my attendance for another day.
I am exceedingly sorry to let you down at such short notice, but my duties as a mother always come first.
I hope you understand and look forward to re arranging another date.
