Buckingham School Language Day
Language Day is a tribute to the memory of the great Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, who contributed to the aggrandizement of the Spanish language with his masterpiece "The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Quixote". This novel, published in 1605, consolidated our language and its author reached the top of the literature world, sharing honors with Homer, Dante and Shakespeare. Our students gave a sample of oral and written skills, highlighting especially the literary production and imagination of our children and youth during this celebration.

This mandatory day imposed by the MEN (Ministry of Education) seeks the participation of the school community in the task of continuous improvement and standardization of processes to meet the target set by the presidency for 2025: to be one of the best educated countries in Latin America. This time our teachers and administrators worked in developing a plan that allows us to continue contributing to raise national quality standards.
