Interior Design. Final Marks.

The image above shows the final marks for the students of 2nd Year of Interior Design.
There are some students who have made a great effort, although they are not necessarily the best in the class, but they have a mark better than that of other students who did not work as hard as they could have worked.
And life is so, the one who makes a greater effort, is usually the one who gets it. So, try always to do your best and remember that when you finish your degree in Interior Design, you will have to survive in the real world, full of interior designers who also want to survive with their projects.
Best of luck!

Advertising Graphics. Resit exams.

Congratulations to Rosa and Vicente. They did it today! Now they have to revise thoroughly to resit in September. I encourage you to try as hard as you can. You'll learn a lot!

Sí a les línies en valencià.

Los directores de Primaria piden retirar el plan trilingüe

Una línia que deixa l'ús de la llengua a discreció dels centres NO es pot anomenar "plurilingüe".

Si estas d'acord amb la proposta de línea única plurilingüe, t'interesa conèixer informació que demostra que és inviable en la pràctica. Quan conegues la proposta detalladament, podras recolçar-la. No crec que dega ser abans ni sense saber els detalls. T'invite a indagar, reflexionar i posicionar-te.
Pots trobar més informació en el següent article: El pretés plurilingüisme: ni valencianitat, ni qualitat, ni llibertat.

Us espere demà a les 18 hs. en Conselleria (C/ Carratalà, 47). Salvem les línes en valencià.
