Once again, a new opportunity to participate in the Tenth English Competition of the THE FONIX 2017, designed to promote the use of English among school students, has started.
We want to inform all of you that all the students in the 5th and 6th of Primary, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th of Secondary, and the whole Batxillerat of Sant Josep School participated in the local stage which took place in the school between the 12th and 15th of January. All the students tried to do their best in the reading, writing and vocabulary activities. We want to remark that both teachers and students felt very satisfied for their participation and the good results achieved.
Nevertheless only one student of each grade had to be chosen to represent our school in the regional stage. Hereunder we publish the winners and finalists to participate in the regional stage.
ANNA XIN (5th Primary), ONA LAUDO (6th Primary), JUANFRAN JIMÉNEZ (1st ESO), EUGENI PUIGIBET (2nd ESO), ANNA CARRASCO (3rd ESO), MAR RAVENTÓS (4th ESO), ANNA VERGE (1st BATX) and IVÁN MANEJA (2nd BATX).
Last Saturday 25th of February the finalists from our school went to Barcelona to the Regional Stage, where they had to do some writing tasks related to Design and Art. They had a great experience as the Primary students site was in INEFC (Institut d’Educació Física de Catalunya) which is an impressive building which hosted the wrestling events for the Olympic games in 1992. For the first time the Batxillerat students had to go to the International House of Barcelona which is placed in some Modernist pavilions next to the Palau de la Música. We want to congratulate all of them! Now, we will be waiting for the results which will be published shortly.

After the ceremony all the participants and their relatives were offered a snack in the gardens of the University and they could be taken photographs with the TV presenter of Info 3, Jordi Gil and also with Mrs Gemma Ruiz (Minister of Education).
