World Toilet Day is celebrated on 19 November and the Bilingual Programme has focused on all the problems caused by the lack of sanitation, as 4.2 billion people in the world still do not have access to a toilet.
The "Pee, Poo and Paper" campaign, organised by the EMA, made it possible for three workshops to be given in English to the 1st and 2nd bilingual ESO students, emphasising the need to throw nothing into the toilet other than what the campaign slogan preaches.
In relation to this day and because of this campaign and workshops that have been held in the School, on Friday 19th we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy a live broadcast of a radio programme from our library.
The journalist Alicia Álvarez is the host of the programme "Hoy por hoy Gijón" and she showed us, together with the accompanying technician, how it is possible to broadcast from almost anywhere.
The live programme was attended, very attentively, by students from the 2nd year of ESO who were able to learn a lot about what is behind a radio programme. You can listen to the full programme by clicking HERE and listen to the intervention of Alberto Argüelles and Amanda Tuero, the Director, Cristina Lejarza, and the person in charge of the Bilingual Programme in our school, Amabel Barrientos, (from minute 49'35'').
One of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030 is access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Only when all the world's population has it, can article 25 of the Human Rights, which discusses the right to health, be fulfilled.
