Valentine's Day

Our class - 9º 1ª -  decided to do an activity related with saint Valentine's Day (the 14th February). We built a Valentine's Box where we put  our messages. The messages were anonymous and were written in a red or pink heart. The hearts were placed in the box and were drawn by our class so that they could be hand out to the person they were addressed to. The Valentine's Box could be used by all students All students of every school grade. On the 22nd February we hand out all the messages. We loved to do this work because we think Valentine's day should be celebrated even if we don't have a valentine. There are different ways to celebrate it.

On the last day, in the afternoon, we split into groups and each of us did what he thought he could. Then we went shopping. We bought souvenirs for our family. We went to the hostel and packed our things for the trip back. During the return trip we stopped for dinner. We arrived in Lisbon  around 5 or 6 am. All of us loved the trip and wanted to stay there longer! It's so good to have new experiences!
