Diabolos Around the School
Since classes started it seems as if a plague of “diabolos” had invaded our
school. Children between 4th primary and 4th year of E.S.O are playing with
these objects and achieving some incredible tricks.
It all started when some boys from the 4th year of E.S.O brought some of
them one day. Younger students saw them and now it has become a new

From the outdoor to the indoor

This year some students form the forth year are playing
indoor football instead of the one we are used to. At
once they were going to make up a normal football
team, but as there weren’t enough people, they took
pot luck with the indoor football. That idea ended up
as being very attractive since two more teams made
up by girls from primary have signed up. “Firstly, we
weren’t very sure, but as we are having very good
results playing very well, we are really motivated”
said Eric, a player for the indoor football team.

Films, actors, actresses

and illegal downloading
What films do you usually watch? , that’s a very frequent question we ask each
other every day. Our parents, as far as I’m concerned, like to see historical
films and action films but sometimes they don’t let us to watch some interesting
films because they are violent.

It is remarkable that people think films do influence their lives.



Yes No

These statistics represent that we all like the genre of the comedy the most
because it makes us laugh. Most of us download

at home and other times, we enjoy watching
films in the cinema. The majority of us, have as

The truth about our TV habits

Adults are always complaining about our hours in front of the TV and what kind of
TV habits. They always say we watch too series and programs we watch. Our final

But is this really true, or are they just

questions about their TV habits and then

rious to see if teenagers spend too many

What kind of series/programs do you watch?

Action 15% Comedy 80% Crime 3%
Football 2%

We can see that the kind of programme most of us like to watch

is comedy. So why do our parents say that the programs we
watch are so horrible? Isn’t it good thing to laugh a little bit after
a hard day at school?

How often do you watch TV?

Twice a Week 13% Daily 87%

As the graph shows, here we’ve got a problem.

Most of us watch TV daily,
which can distract us a lot from our studies.
It would be a better
thing to reduce a little our time in front of the TV if we want
to get better moves at school.

Do you watch it primarily alone or with your family?

Both 48% Alone 33% Family 19%

Here we can see that there are moments in which we prefer

to watch alone, and moments in which we prefer to watch to
with our family, as nearly half of us have both habits

Do you have a TV in your room?

No 58% Yes 42 %

More than half of us don’t have a TV in our room, which is a po-

sitive thing if we want to reduce the number of hours in front of
the TV, but from another point of view, it can also be a negative
thing because then we’ll have to deal with our parents or bro-
thers/sisters to decide which programme to watch.

How many TV’s are there in your house?

Three 30% Two 22%
One 11% Seven 5%
Six 2% Five 11%
Four 20%

The graph shows that the majority of us have 3 TVs in

our house. But there are some of us that have up to se-
ven TVs (nea 5%) so in this case it wouldn’t be the
child’s fault if he watched too much TV, it would be the
parent’s fault, having an unnecessary number of TVs at

Do you watch the news?

Yes 53% No 34% Sometimes 13%

Here there’s a great surprise: Most of us actually watch the news! So our
parent’s complaints about watching trash TV is just an exaggeration be-
cause most of us, more than half, watch the news at least sometimes. So
we are interested in what happens around the world, which is a sign that
we are not the anti-social group we are sometimes supposed to be.

What influences the type of programmes you watch?

Likes 75% Publicity 14% Actors 12%

Here we can see that our likes are most influential on each other regarding
the type of program we watch, and that advertisements only influence us
to a small degree which is a bit surprising.

1- What kind of music do you listen to?

Pop - 42.6% 45.00

Rock - 39.7%
Hip-Hop - 23.5% 33.75
Techno - 26.5%
Punk - 1.5% 22.50


Pop 0

The most popular style of song among teenagers is pop. But there is not much difference between
pop and rock which are separated by less than 3%. Hip-hop and techno are also pretty popular
among teenagers, but on the other hand, but punk isn’t popular at all.

3- Which radio station do you

listen to?
40 Principales - 70.6%
Kiss FM – 7.3%
Other radio stations - 8.8%
Do not listen to music - 13.2%

And the award of best radio station goes to…

“Los 40 Principales”. This radio station is liste-
ned to by 70.6% of us. It’s the most popular sta-
tion by far. What is noticeable in this graph is
that the second most listened one is only liste-

different types of music?

Internet - 39.7%
TV - 8.8%
Radio - 14.7%

One the one hand most pupils at St-Patrick’s get to know

about different types of music through their friends and
through the internet. On the other hand, a vast minority

through the
internet and music channels on the TV.

6- How much time do you spend listening to music every week?

0-5 hours - 30.9%
5-10 hours - 32.3%
10-15 hours - 23.5%
10% 15-20 hours - 3.5%
4% More than 20 hours - 9.8%
We can see that there isn’t a fixed tendency in the amount of music
24% we listen to. What is perhaps, most noticeable, is the large number of
people who listen to music more than 20 hours a week, or said in a
different way, nearly 3 hours a day; one of every 10 of us does so.


0-5 hours 6-10 hours

11-15 hours 16-20 hours

7- Do you download music? If so, how often? Do

you do it legally or illegally?

Yes - 94.2%

Legally - 1.5% Daily - 49.1%

Illegally - 98.5% Weekly - 40%
Monthly - 10.9%




Legally Illegally Daily Weekly Monthly

These statistics clearly highlight that nearly everyone of us is used to using the internet not just for
working, but also to download music illegally. Downloading music illegally is something which is
against the law, but very typical nowadays. Half of us download music daily, a result which shows
our dependency of making use of it for our social life.

Don’t say you’ve never wondered about teenager’s consumption

I can’t think of a reason for which teenagers do this, don’t they know
that drink and drugs aren’t the definition for fun? In my opinion they
do this to gain popularity, and because they think that like this they are
more mature. But the truth is that it’s very childish of them to think in

Football Survey

People complain that the Premiership is better than the Spanish

league because of the players that they have. What do you think
about that?

In this survey we have tried to get the answers of these ques-

tions. What team do you support? Are we supporting the team of
our city or is it that we are starting to support teams that
attracts us because of the way they play?

We have done this research in the San Patrick‘s school (4 year

students, 68 students in total). The questions are related to our
taste about football but that is not all the statistics are compiled
based on the answers of the students. We hope you carry on rea-
ding and also that you enjoy this survey.

The Truth About the Relationship Between

Students and Teachers
A lot of us think that if there isn’t any problem bet ween a
teacher and a student, everything is perfect. But do we
really know what students think about their teachers or
the exams they have to pass?
In this survey we decided to try to get to the bottom of
this thorny issue. So are some of the stereotypical things
students say true?
We asked the whole of the fourth year (68 students in to-
tal) some questions related to the school teachers and then
made some graphs with the results. We hope you find them

Which teachers do you think is the funniest?

10%9% As we can see, a lot of students think Chema is the most amusing teacher
(31%), but other people like Josemi or Josean seem to get on well with
12% their pupils.
Chema 31% Blas 26% Juan 12%
Josemi 12% Josean 10% Others 9%

Which teacher do you think sets more homework?

As the chart shows, the majority of people (31 %) think that Reyes has to
reduce the amount of homework she sets. However, we can also see the-
re are many different opinions between students.

7% 7%7%
10% Reyes 31% Sussie 16% Begoña E 12%

Do you think a teacher has picked on you sometimes? If so who?

In this case most students think that a teacher had picked on them but it appears not to be a particular
teacher who picks on students as “others” agroups the majority (22%). However, Alazne is for stu-
dents a teacher who often picks on her pupils.

Which teacher do you think makes the most difficult exams?

As we can see, a lot of students find Simon’s exams the most difficult ones
(22.05%). This pie chart shows, as the previous, that not all of the inter-
viewed agree in a particular teacher.
12% 9%7%
Simon 22% Chema 19%
13% 22% Begoña E 18% Pilar 13%
Others 12% Josean 9%

Which teacher do you think punish students most?

In this case, the biggest amount of the interviewed agrees
Chema punishes quite a lot (45.58%). New teachers in the
third year like Mac, also punishes a lot. 13% 9%
Alazne 19% Chema 46% MAC 13% 19%
Simon 13% Others 9%


These statistics are remarkable for any reasons, but what stands
out most is that they serve to show what students talk about rela-
ted to their teachers when they are not listening to their teachers.
The first pie chart shows that Chema is the funniest teacher whe-
reas the third one shows Alazne as a strict teacher. This survey
also advise you to study a lot for Simon’s exams or shows that
many students have been the teachers pet

We do know that not all the teachers are going to agree with some
results but what we don’t want to do is to make teachers argue in
the staff room.
