MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Hello dear community of ES International School and Academy Sanchez-Casal. For me, being the president of the ES International School Student Council is a wonderful opportunity, and I would like to tell you about my journey up until this point.
My name is Hovhannes Madanyan and I was born in Yerevan, Armenia. I started playing tennis when I was 6 years old. I was going to a public school until I made the decision to come to Barcelona for a visit as a typical tourist, and my parents decided to send me to the AS-C summer camp for a week. During that week, I just loved the environment of the school and tennis training. After 2 years, I made a decision to come to AS-C full time.
I have been here for 4 years already, and I am absolutely in love with the environment that this school provides me. Throughout this year, as President, I had an opportunity to get to know every student in the school. Us being a small school, everyone gets to interact with each other – from the youngest to the oldest.
All these years, I always wanted to do something good for our school like being able to change something for the better and make students’ lives even happier. This year we have already improved upon lot of things such as the Wi-Fi and showers. We have organized many fun activities such as the Thanksgiving Luncheon and Christmas party. We opened a common room for students and teachers so that they will be able to relax after a hard day of school and tennis. We have also been organizing charity events throughout the year, with hopes of donating to the Make a Wish Foundation and Run for Hunger.
Since the beginning, I wanted to have an impact on the school. Now I have the opportunity to make this campus a better place for students and for teachers. I am very glad that I have the opportunity, and I will try to the best of my abilities, to do as much as I can for this community until the end of the school year.
All the best,
Student Council President
