COLEGIO MAYOR LARRAONA

LOGBOOK OF

EXPERIENCES

Being a student at Larraona is first and foremost a great life experience.  You will remember your years here forever. We want to support you in the process so you can ensure that this great experience is formed by thousands of other small ones that leave their mark on you. But, always, with freedom. You decide. Because you should be the protagonist.

EXPERIENCES

ARE YOU COMING?

Ecology workshop in the orchards of Aranzadi, Arti History workshop, volunteering with people with intellectual disabilities, visits to nursing homes for the elderly, film series, debates....Each year we arrange a plethora of activities! We introduce you to some of them, although they evolve each year.

We are open to any student suggesting and preparing their own initiative. You can bring a special guest, collaborate in organising the activities and even belong to the Student Council; a group of students that represent the others. So, they are activities designed by students for students. You decide!

Ecology Workshop

Do you know everything there is to know about ecology and the environment? Surprise yourself and discover more about this topic in this workshop which includes visits to different natural spaces in Navarre, such as Eugui, Fitero or las Bardenas Reales.

Development Aid Workshop

Solidarity shouldn’t have borders. We help you to discover how you can help those who need it and live far away from us.

Volunteering in the prison

Once a month, we visit prisoners at the prison in Pamplona and play a football match with them. Had you imagined volunteering like this? We have spent more than 50 years doing this activity and each year we are keen to do it again. Are you coming?

Pastoral

We have a Faith Group which, led by our chaplain, meets each week to celebrate, pray and reflect on the Word and the Christian message. Each Sunday we hold a mass in the chapel and organise different meetings that help us to experience faith in the community and more intensely: partnerships, visits to pilgrimage sites or places of worship, and more.

THINK&BEER

Each month someone brings a special guest and we talk with them about a topic of interest. Immigration policy? Astrophysics? Fake news? All of this is accompanied by your friends and with a beer in hand. What better way to learn and have a great time?

Inter-corridor Tournament

At Larraona, we hold our own “Olympic Games”, adapted to the sports and activities that we enjoy. Indoor football, ping-pong, chess, basketball, mus, poker, FIFA... We compete by corridors, who win points each time a student wins in one of these disciplines. And there is a prize! Both for the winning corridor and the winners of each category. A great way of building a team.

Pamplona and its surroundings take care of bring you magical moments, you just need to make sure you capture them.

Story competition
