February 28th is El Día de Andalucía, a holiday where we celebrate what it is to be Andaluz. In school, we celebrated the day on Thursday. Everyone was invited to come in typical Andalucian dress or in the colours of the Andalucian flag – white and green.
We ate a typical Andalucian breakfast, pan con aceite y azucar (bread with olive oil and sugar), learned a lot about some of the important Andalucian cities (Malaga, Cordoba, Seville, Cadiz, Granada) and learned to dance Sevillanas with Miss Mora.
Here are some photos of the day.
Here is a video we watched, showing some of the wonderful things about living in Andalucia. Music is by Chambao, a band from Malaga.

Thank you to Miss Toro, Mr Toro, Miss Mora and all the members of the Spanish department whose hard work resulted in such a great learning experience!
