This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

Xosé María Díaz Castro - Galician Literature Day

picture from Wikipedia
Every 17th of May we celebrate Galician Literature Day. This year this date is dedicated to Xosé María Díaz Castro, born in Guitiriz in 1914.

Xosé María Díaz Castro was a poet and translator. His most important book was Nimbos and he translated the works of Verner von Heidenstam, Henrik Pontoppidan, Johannes Vilhelm Jensen, Rainer Maria Rilke, William Butler Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Walt Whitman, G. K. Chesterton, Frederick Forsyth, Friedrich Schiller, Arthur Rimbaud, Paul Valéry, Alphonse de Lamartine and Paul Claudel into Spanish.

In our school we'll hold a poetry session in which we'll read his most relevant poems. It will take place at the beginning of June.
