Terrifying Nature: Hurricanes (II) – Spanish students send their support to Staten Island

Last Thursday 30th November students from the groups 1st year CSE A, 2nd year CSE A and C found out more on the terrifying power of natural disasters, hurricanes in particular, with the help of two teachers, Alejandro (Biology) and Jaime (English), together with two of our American language assistants, Michael and Kayla. Since one of our language assistants, Michael, is from Staten Island and Staten Island has been one of the areas most affected by hurricane Sandy we decided it might be a good idea to include info and pictures displaying the terrible damages caused by the hurricane in some neighbourhoods of New York. Thus, Michael brought the pictures he had used in his Hurricane Recovery Project and we could display them in our school dining room. Big thanks to the photographers and him!

[Update (12th December): The Typhoon Bopha has hit the Philippines and killed 902 people. This typhoon has been the strongest so far this year. You can watch some scary pictures of the damages here. You should remember that hurricanes and typhoons are tropical cyclones. The difference is just geographical: in the western North Pacific, tropical cyclones are called typhoons; in the Atlantic, tropical cyclones are called hurricanes and in the Indian Ocean and South Pacific Ocean tropical cyclones are called cyclones.]

55 students also wrote really moving support notes and drew fantastic pictures for the students in one of the schools most affected by the hurricane. From our Clara Campoamor school we send them our best wishes.

Cheer up & Keep fighting!
