Bolivia comes to Cranbourne

Our Key Stage 3 Spanish students have been learning about the Bolivian festival of Las Alasitas, where people buy miniature versions of their deseos (wishes) in the hope that these wishes will come true in the year to come, with the help of the traditional Aymará god Ekeko.

We have challenged the students to make their own deseos which represent their hopes and dreams. The object should be handmade by the student, using any materials they like, and should be a scaled-down version of the real thing.

Here are some examples from previous years. We look forward to showing you our deseos after half term – what would yours be?
