Italian dinner!

Yesterday on the 17 th of February we had an Italian dinner and it was a REALLY GOOD dinner! The preparations took us around three days. The school provided us the best  quality Italian ingredients from which we prepared: as buffet a dish of  mozzarella, tomatoes, basil as a starter bresaola with Italian cheese in addition there was bruschetta, bread with philadelfia and bread with prezzemolo. The main dish was three different types of pasta:  pesto, ricotta and tomatoes sauce. After the pasta there was parmigiana di melanzane which is a kind of lasagna but with eggplant. The dessert was tiramisu. A lot of people liked it and complimented us. We wish we will have a chance to do it again!!!

World cancer day

Every year, 4th February is dedicated to spreading awareness about one of the deadliest diseases in the world – Cancer! This year, the tag line or theme so to say, is ‘Not Beyond Us’. It calls for a bolstered attempt at spreading awareness and highlights the importance of ‘early detection’.

According to world cancer day’s official website, solutions to curb cancer exist and are within our reach. World Cancer Day is a unique opportunity to raise awareness that there is much that can be done at an individual, community and governmental level, to harness and mobilise these solutions and catalyse positive change.

In order to stay protected and keep cancer at bay, there are a few things you must keep in mind:

Carcinogens are substances that can damage or disrupt our body’s cellular metabolic process. One of the most common ways through which carcinogens can affect our body is through smoking, chewing tobacco, binge drinking etc.
