We promote cultural immersion at Novaschool Sunland
Once a month, our students enjoy music, gastronomy, information of interest and historical knowledge of other countries.
Last year, we already ventured into this cultural project, which involves introducing students in a different environment on the last Friday of each month. We celebrated the International Day of Greece in September; the International Day of Germany in October; the International Day of U.S.A. in November…with more days to come!
During the week before these days, both students and teachers are involved in designing the decoration of the school canteen, as well as other common areas of the center, and throughout the day, we enjoy together a complete cultural immersion, surrounded by typical music and food. In addition, teachers of the different subjects meet together to focus their classes on the corresponding country.

Many efforts and trials make us think that … it will be a success!
We are in luck at Novaschool Sunland for the second consecutive year that we have returned to get a position among the best international schools in Spain, as well as the newspaper El Mundo in its ranking of the top 100 schools.
The good work of our teachers and the rest of the staff, as well as the effort of our students, are rewarded with this recognition that they show us as the best, together with a higher education school. Novaschool Añoreta, for the fifth year in a row, achieves a place in this qualification.
This year has had an important weight the improvement of our facilities, the consolidation of our center in the Guadalhorce Valley, our differential values as certified center of Cambridge and Edexcel; as well as technological innovations such as the use of the laptop in the classroom, or the new application that is in development to make the communication of the center with families and vice versa more fluid.
Congratulations to the whole Novaschool family and to continue working to be among the best!

At Novaschool Sunland we are very involved with environmental awareness and responsible use of natural resources, proof of this has been the recent obtaining of ISO certificates (both quality and environmental). After a year of evaluating and tracking the consumption, we can see the results of this minimization, these being the actions taken:
- Placement of pearlizers in the taps
- Change of tanks with double load
- Talks of internal awareness to both teachers and students
- Placement of posters for awareness and minimization in rooms and bathrooms
- Realization of plans and technical instructions for the proper use of resources
- In addition to carrying out improvements in the facilities of the center during the new works carried out that help responsible consumption.
Today we want to highlight that we have exceeded our proposed goal of reducing water consumption (m3 consumed per person) by 5% compared to the previous year, result that we envisioned by the involvement of all staff and students who do the day to day in Novaschool Sunland.
