Come and join us at Bellver International College's Spring Fair 2012!
Saturday, June 2nd from 10:00 until 15:00.
This year the fair is going to be focused on the Bellver community - in particular a fun time for the children. We have organized a wonderful series of events and activities for students as well as for their parents, and we are looking forward
to sharing them with you.
This year we will also be offering lunch, including a selection of hamburgers and hot dogs fresh off the grill to tortilla española, bocadillos, gazpacho, ensaladilla rusa - and a delicious paella which will be prepared right there on the patio by
a master paella chef!
The play is about a young man who becomes badly scarred in a car accident and is left dealing with the effects of his new face. How will it affect his school life? What will his girlfriend think? Come along and find out. Tuesday 12th June at 7pm Bellver International College. Tickets are available now from the school reception and are free of charge on a first come first served basis.

The British Paralympic Swimming Team have again chosen Bellver College to host their GCSE and A Level exams whilst they are at a training camp in Mallorca. This year we welcome Ellie Simmonds, Oliver Hynd, Hannah Russell, Amy Marren, Jack Bridge and Jessica Applegate. We wish them all the best and are very happy to support them at this important time.
The Easter holidays saw a group of 36 Bellverians travel to the Lake District in Cumbria, England, for an action packed week where elements of the Geography, PSHE and Physical Education departments combined most successfully. The pupils from years 7 to 10 took part in a wide range of challenges which saw them scaling mountains, climbing the peaks of
Skiddaw and wandering through Wordsworth’s famous landscapes. Even the extreme weather with an unexpected snowstorm could not dampen the spirits of the pupils, and they rose to the occasion, successfully scaling the heights of Cat Bells, Ghyl scrambling and honing their skills on Kayak and canoe.
In addition to having a great time the pupils were able to refine their geographical skills in the historic market town of Keswick and develop team building skills by completing a range of fun activities from orienteering to the daring high ropes challenge. One of the most popular activities saw the pupils “storm the castle” where they had to work
in teams to overcome a number of obstacles to blow up a model castle.
A great time was had by all and the pupils arrived back in Palma Airport after a fun filled week of activities. Due to the success of the trip we are already planning our next educational field trip to another location abroad where students will be given the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom and broaden their knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Melanie Sweeting for her efforts and for being the driving force behind the field trip. My Thanks also to her team comprised of Ms Griffiths, Ms Raftery and Ms Roden.
A group of Year 12 students will be travelling to the UK after their AS examinations in May. The aim of the trip is to allow the students to visit a variety of both campus and city based universities. They will see different subject departments, meet with professors, visit student unions and get a real taste of university life. My thanks to Ms Roden, our UCAS coordinator for this initiative.
Last week students in year 6 entered a poster competition on the 2012 Olympic Games in London, organised by the British Embassy in Madrid. This competition was open to all British schools in Spain and I am very pleased to announce that Carlos Garcia de Cecilio was awarded third prize. He will be receiving a letter from the ambassador shortly as well as earning the school €300. My congratulations to Carlos and my thanks to Ms Salma Aslam for her efforts.
