Bell-lloc Secondary School

Secondary school - ESO

In secondary school we consolidate and extend our learning process so that each student can make their way to their academic future
An education of the Future: Active Methodologies and New Technologies

The main purpose of secondary school education is to ensure that students complete the stage by being autonomous in their learning process and ready to succeed in the academic and work world that will be part of their immediate future .

To achieve this, we combine the most traditional teaching practices with the most recent active methodologies, in which the teacher concentrates on accompanying the student as the protagonist of their learning process.  These active methodologies include project work (ABP), cooperative work, and interdisciplinary projects. Many of these projects use the New Technologies as an educational and creative resource.

Innovative projects in secondary school

Cathedral project . In this project in the Social studies subject, students prepare a guided visit to the cathedral of Girona during the school year. At the end of the year, they carry out the visit with their parents, who become co-evaluators of their project. The skills of learning to learn, of cultural awareness and expression, and sense of initiative are especially worked on.

STEAM project (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics), from the 1st to 4th years of secondary school.

 

In the subject of technology, we work through ABP and cooperative work, and different projects are done according to the year and the term.

In years 1 and 2 of secondary school, a prototype is designed and some units are manufactured, which are then sold for solidarity purposes at the end-of-year party. Programming and robotics are also being started.

In the 3rd year of secondary school, a house within the Bell-Domus subject is designed with all the architectural, material, commercial and legal study elements related to it. Finally, the project is presented at a multilingual Fair at the end of the year where parents are co-evaluators of the project. Through these projects all competences are worked, from mathematics, science and technology, to social and civic or entrepreneurship skills, including digital, communication and linguistics.

– Linguamat project: In Linguamat interdisciplinary projects in language and mathematics are carried out. Students work on mathematical concepts through creative projects such as conducting an election project for a football club where they must study electoral and statistics law, design a logo using geometric parameters, or work on probability through the sausage game. All work is presented in front of the classroom so that the students can improve their oratory skills and ability to make a coherent presentation speech.

– Entrepreneurship and Erasmus +: In the 3rd and 4th years of secondary school, the entrepreneurship course takes place where the students have to set up a mini-company that presents a product that responds to a social demand and, in this way, learn to run any business activity to improve our environment. The course is partly conducted in English, with different teams participating in state and European competitions.

In the 4th year of secondary school we have the Erasmus + project where students from BAE carry out shared projects with students from the rest of Europe, in this case, with students from Poland, Italy and Portugal. Each year, exchange weeks take place where students travel to various schools for entrepreneurship days and enrich joint projects.

Education in values and virtues. Comprehensive training of the person. Academic demand.

At Bell-lloc we have a holistic view of education, and human education has the same value, if not more, than academic education. The B!Carácter training plan, common throughout the school, focuses on working on the values and virtues of our students.

In addition, in the 3rd and 4th years of secondary school, students carry out weekly social volunteer tasks. On the one hand, the students of the 3rd year of secondary school go to the Germanetes charity every week to help feed the residents while the 4th years monitor physical education activities for the boys and girls of Astrid 21.

Academic excellence combines this quest to maximise the human and academic potential.
