Sant Jordi/ Book Day.

    Saint George Day commemorates this Saint's supposed death on the 23 April 303. In addition, he is the patron saint of countries such as Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Georgia, England or Portugal, and cities such as Timbuktu (Mali). 

    In Spain it is the autonomous communities of Aragon, Catalonia and Balearic Islands, as well as the towns of Alcoy (Alicante), Cáceres, Golosalvo Burrows (these last two in the province of Albacete), Lucena (Córdoba) and Santurce (Vizcaya).

    Due to the fact that in 1995 the UNESCO proclaimed through on April 23 as World Book Day coinciding with the day of the commemoration of the Holy, in regions such as Catalonia and the Balearic Islands, there is a popular tradition that combines both commemorations through the exchanges of gifts of Red Roses (St. George) and books (book day).

   Students will create their own bookmark. They can decide which character /object they want to draw (Saint George, the Princess, the dragon or the rose)
