Welcome to this week issue of our news program. Today, we will hear about the girls volleyball team in Butarque, the Red Cross an the theater play What women invent. But first,
Butarque volleyball team.
The girls volleyball team managede this year to move to fourth. The game was exciting because the school Antonio Gala was the same that disqualified us last year to move to semifinals. The match was closely contested, but unfortunately the girls lost 1-2 in our school, winning only in the first set.
