COMPLEMENTARY ACTIVITIES consist of a number of Activity Programmes also organised by the Extracurricular Activities Department at the school, spanning different periods of the school year and usually carried out outside the “comfort zone” of the school. Some of these educations activities are described as follows:
White Week programme: “LEARN IN WHITE”
FEATURES We get on the bus every day from our accommodation to Cerler ski station, and join the pistes at Ampriu, thus avoiding having to take the ski lift with all our equipment. The children and monitors accompanying them alight from the bus on the pistes, next to the services building (canteen, café, toilets, lockers, medical services, etc.) and then take the different ski lifts according to their skiing levels. All the equipment is stored at the ski station, thus making it easier for us to ski down the slopes and more convenient and less tiring for the pupils. The pupils are accompanied by teachers and monitors assigned to the Extracurricular Activities Department at the school, who make sure they stay safe and cater for their needs. Ángel Artal makes sure the staff are perfectly coordinated while there, and he reports the group’s progress to the families on a daily basis with pictures on our specific White Week BLOG.
OBJECTIVES To learn and/or improve skiing/snowboard techniques, whilst becoming familiar with the natural environment as a source of cultural and leisure wealth, respecting the natural environment and group discipline. To live and cooperate as a group, developing our autonomy and personal identity, respecting to teachers, monitors and people in the village and ski station.
DATES: Last week of February.

PROJECT: the project began 8 years ago on initiative by theExtracurricular & Complementary Activities department at CBA and has been consistently successful year after year. It is a Summer Camp which takes place in Sarvisé (Huesca), at the natural entrance to Ordesa Valley in the heart of the Aragonese Pyrenees, from 1st to 10th July for children in Year 2 Primary to Year 2 Secondary. It features a varied programme of activities, trips into nature, sports activities (rafting, zip wires and tree-top walks, pony trekking, etc.), creative workshops and chats, where ENGLISH will be a key tool for daily use and the main language during all the activities carried out inside the Camp. Both the management and organisation of the programme will be undertaken from the school itself, with teachers and monitors with wide experience assigned to the centre, and under the direction and supervision of the extracurricular activities coordinator, Ángel Artal.
