El último esfuerzo
 
Se aproxima el fin de este curso y parece que fue hace muy poco que comenzamos el año académico con la emoción de los estrenos y con la cartera llena de buenos objetivos.

En estos días tenemos los exámenes del segundo semestre y merece la pena hacer el último esfuerzo.
Nada nos hace sentir mejor que el trabajo bien hecho, el deber cumplido y no hay nada que más alegre a los padres que sentir el esfuerzo de sus hijos y el esfuerzo siempre obtiene su recompensa: “unas felices vacaciones”.

Por esto, merece la pena hacer el último esfuerzo para llegar a la calificación más alta, para recuperar aquel conocimiento que no llegué a afianzar, para dar una alegría a mi familiar y para sentirme bien conmigo mismo.

En el SEK, como bien se reconoce en el Ideario, se estima el trabajo como el factor primordial de promoción y valoración de la persona.

Desarrollando habilidades artísticas

Los niños que realizan actividades artísticas desde la primera infancia obtienen diversos beneficios físicos y emocionales. Se revela a través de la coordinación visual - motriz, por la manera que controla su cuerpo, guía su grafismo y ejecuta ciertos trabajos. Las artes desarrollan habilidades significativas para el éxito académico y la vida diaria

Fomentar el arte en la infancia significa dar estrategias que formen seres humanos con más capacidad para desenvolverse socialmente, asegurando también que se incentiva el diálogo, la practicidad y el respeto por el entorno.

Arts for Mom

As part of the activities organized for all SEK’s mothers, students elaborated beautiful arts crafts. From Playgroup to 6th grade, for weeks they worked hard and with excitement to see their grand creations finished.

Colorful flowers, cards, flowerpots, notebooks, pencil holders and many more decorated the school’s classrooms for days, awaiting the very expected day.  
 
 
A song for Mom
 
Nearly everyone enjoys music, whether by listening to it, singing, or playing an instrument.  As part of the school’s curriculum, students learn about music. A subject that can enrich students’ lives and education.
Musical training helps develop language and reasoning, helps memorization, students learn to improve their work, and helps increase coordination and emotional development.

Through music, students learn pattern recognition, fine-tuned auditory skills. Music builds imagination and intellectual curiosity, discipline and creative thinking. Everyone loves a good song, and that is why students gave mothers their best tunes in a show filled of excitement and emotion.
2016 Spelling Bee
 
On Friday, May 20th  the English Department held their school-wide Spelling Bee contest.

The students spent over a month studying words, their spelling patterns, definitions and even appropriate sentences for each.

They had the opportunity to become familiarize with new words and even reacquainted with words they already knew.

Our students were all excited and making a great effort. Congratulations to all!

Years 5 & 6 Forensics Club
 
This week the girls in the Forensics club looked at making moulds of shoe prints, teeth marks and tyre treads and why they could be important in an investigation.  We then went on to make full size models of our thumbs; this was done by making a mould in dental alginate and then using plaster of Paris to make a model.  The dental alginate is easy to peel off the plaster model leaving a life-size model with fingerprint ridges and all the indentations in their thumbnail.  They were very pleased with the outcome.

Growing Sucrose Crystals
 
Our Year 7 students recently grew sucrose crystals in our laboratory.  This required them to heat up a beaker of water (solvent) over a Bunsen Burner adding sugar (solute) until a saturated sucrose solution was created.   To add a bit of colour, food colouring was added to the solution and then a piece of string was suspended into the solution.  The solution with the string in was left out on the counters to allow evaporation to take place.  As the water evaporated the crystals began to form on the string. 
 
After two weeks, the students could not wait to take their crystals out of the solution and some of them even decided to taste the final product.  After we had removed the crystals, we decided to see if we could separate the water from the sugar and the food colouring and set about distilling the solution to find out if it could be done. 
 
What do you think?
