Red polkadots, carnations and “parpusas” (the traditional black and white caps worn by “chulapos” filled the corridors in Early Years, on the 14th of May, as we celebrated Saint Isidro, the patron saint of Madrid. Faithfull to our bi-cultural heritage, “Chulapos and Chulapas” were suitably dressed to give the School a real Castillian feel, in what is Madrid´s most iconic and enjoyable day.
As well as the typical costumes, our youngest also enjoyed a get together which included “chocolate and churros” the typical food often eaten for breakfast in Madrid.
And we also had popular “chotis” dances, which also helped to create a very “pichi” atmosphere. We were all able to enjoy that special flavour found in street parties as well as so many other good things in Madrid.
