Discovering the Sierra in Spring.

Casvi International American School > Mar 2019 > Discovering the Sierra in Spring.
The students of 3rd and 4th of E.S.O. have made a trekking route through the Sierra de Guadarrama to discover the spring effect and to develop their sense of responsibility towards the environment.

Specifically, they have made the well-known “Route of the trenches” starting from the water reservoir of La Jarosa where they have started walking 800 meters along a paved track.

This route receives its name because along the route there are vestiges of bunkers and trenches of the Spanish Civil War, the area was called the Guadarrama Front.

It is true that at that time there was no vegetation that our students have found today because nowadays the route runs through an abundant forest of pines that once did not exist.

After a walk of approximately 3.1 miles and observe the natural heritage that surrounds them, the students have eaten and collected all the waste to minimize their ecological footprint in the environment.

Within the Middle Years Program (MYP) we encourage our students to strive to help others and positively influence the lives of people and the environment.
