Escola La Bòbila!
November 2013 – February 2014
During the first term Hermes has been working really hard. He has been
travelling around the whole school, visiting different classrooms with
several children aged between 3 and 12. Here he is in an Arts and Craft
lesson, joining 3rd grade of primary, our seven years old children.
He has also been exercising! Here you can see Hermes with the 4 year
olds, at the gym, in a quite exhaustive PE session!
Here is Hermes at the Science Classroom. He is helping the children of 5th
grade while they are doing their experiments.
Christmas time soon arrived, and Hermes got mixed up with all the presents
under the Christmas tree. Brezo also taught him to say Merry Christmas in
Catalan: “Bon Nadal!”
Beginning with the Feast of the
(December 8), one gives the Tió a
little bit to "eat" every night and
usually covers him with a little
blanket so that he will not be cold
Usually on Christmas Eve, one
hits the Tió with sticks, while
singing various songs of Tió de
Nadal or carols.
The tradition says that before
beating the Tió all the kids have
to leave the room and go to
another place of the house to
pray asking for the Tió to deliver
a lot of presents. This makes the
perfect excuse for the relatives to
do the trick and put the presents
under the blanket while the kids
Hermes has also been taking some music lessons! The second graders love him!
The youngest children of the school, our 3 year olds, have also had lots of
fun with Hermes in the library and the Little Prince!
