On May 30th the CANARY DAY is celebrated. The Day of the Canary Islands (Día de las Canarias) is a public holiday the Canary Islands, Spain, on May 30 each year. This event celebrates the islands’ culture. It also commemorates the autonomous Canary Islands Parliament’s first session on May 30, 1983.

The Statute of the Canary Islands was published on August 10th 1982 and, like many of the other statutes in  other regions of Spain, wanted to give the islands more autonomy within the country. The first Canary Parliament was chaired by Pedro Guerra Cabrera.

From the Second Republic, the Canary Islands had tried to have more autonomy, however due to the Spanish Civil War and and Franco Dictatorship, it was not until 46 years after, when Canary Islands could have and own Government on August 10th 1983 once the Dictatorship had finished.



IES LA OLIVA is going to celebrate the CANARY DAY with many activities and events. Due to our ERASMUS + PROJECT LORESU – Let’s Study Local and Regional Subjects at School, students of 3RD ESO A, 4TH ESO B and 1ST BAC A and B have been working in April and May in English subject and with the teacher Carolina Ramos on different topics about the Canary heritage.  The CANARY FLORA has been worked by the students of 3rd ESO, the CANARY FAUNA and the ART MADE IN THE CANARIES have been dealt by the 4th ESO group and finally the students of 1st BAC A and B have been looking for information about the TRADITIONAL CANARY CRAFT WORKS. All these projects and works have been exhibited in our high school where the rest of students and teachers will be able to enjoy them. Moreover, these students have recorded videos about these topics which are going to be watched during the CANARY WEEK.

Also from RED BIBESCAN workshops about the CANARY LEXICON and the way the CANARY PEOPLE SPEAK will be hold.  The work about the CANARY WRITERS made by the students of 2nd ESO through the MULEEY PROJECT directed by  the teacher Marita de León will be shown again.
