Deporte y vida sana
 
En esta semana estarán todas nuestras familias recibiendo la monografía “El Deporte Nos Hace Mejores”.

Esta monografía motiva a realizar actividades físicas, llevar una dieta sana y de forma especial, practicar deporte en familia.

Todos somos conscientes de que si los niños y jóvenes practican algún deporte serán más responsables, más colaboradores, tendrán mayor autoestima y se mantendrán alejados de los malos hábitos.

La Educación Física se constituye, hoy en día, en una disciplina fundamental para una educación integral, por lo que es necesario fomentar las actividades físicas desde temprana edad.

Es por lo que en nuestro colegio, los alumnos de Educación Infantil disponen de 6 módulos de clase a la semana para practicar; natación, expresión corporal, pre ballet, pre karate y expresión lúdica.

Con esta monografía los padres podrán entender con más facilidad las diferentes facetas de desarrollo de sus hijos y así afianzar la armonía en el hogar.

Los alumnos de básica y secundaria, participaron con entusiasmo en cada uno de los juegos organizados. Entre ellos: Ring toss, basketball shoot, prize punch, dart throw, balloon bombs, guessing jar, Frisbee y photo booth.

Actividades como esta son muy importantes, con ellas se logra crear un ambiente de convivencia y se fomenta el compañerismo entre el alumnado.

Sink or Float

As part of the Science Lab program, 1st and 2nd grade students were able to make and test predictions about sinking and floating. They also classified objects according to whether they sink or float.

In this activity, students determined whether various objects were going to sink or float in water. Whether an object sinks or float in a liquid depends mainly on two factors: density and buoyancy. However, on these levels, students do not need to explain why objects sink or float. They are rather to be encouraged to observe that the same objects will sink or float every time; understanding that there is consistency in the way the objects behave.

It was a fun and interesting class for everyone. It helped them devise their own ideas about physical properties and how they can be used to describe and categorize objects. For some of them, just the fact they got to play with water made it already special!
Soccer Champions 

Our 5º-6º male soccer team is participating in the 2016 La Salle Cup. On Monday 10th , they had their first games in which they did an amazing job.

This is a great opportunity for our young players, not only they get to practice and improve their techniques, but also they meet other young students from the different participating schools in the city. They are enjoying of what they all have in common: the love for the sport.

Our team won ALL their matches! Here are the scores:

SEK VS CEMEP: 1-0
SEK VS Veritas: 2-0
SEK VS King Christian School: 3-0 

We will keep you posted on the upcoming games!

A day in our school- Former Alumni Club

Is always great to receive our Former Alumni, and is even greater to have them upon their request.

The Former Alumni Club, organized the first sports activity of the year; looking forward to strengthen the ties with the students who have graduated long ago.

They came early Saturday with lots of energy and excitement. They played, laughed, joked, talked and remembered how great it is to come home once again.
 
You are always welcome back!

Revisiones Médicas 2016
  
Hemos iniciado las revisiones médicas a los estudiantes que sus familias así lo desean.   
Esta revisión médica consta de un examen físico generalizado, incluyendo los conceptos pertinentes en el área educativa como: datos generales (peso-talla, índice de masa corporal), esquema de vacuna, exploración física aparato cardiocirculatorio, aparato respiratorio, aparato locomotor, audición y visión, exploración bucal.
 
El dispensario médico cuenta con una camilla, báscula, medidor de talla, estetoscopio, tensiómetro (esfigmomanómetro), termómetro y otoscopio para realizar el examen físico.
 
Cualquier hallazgo patológico se anotará al final de cada revisión médica y SIEMPRE se aconsejará la consulta con su médico pediatra de elección para una exploración más específica de dicho hallazgo.

Cabe recalcar que la función del departamento médico nunca será reemplazar al médico pediatra, sino más bien servir como primer auxilio a cualquier inconveniente o situación de salud que se presente durante horario escolar.
 
El crecimiento y el desarrollo de su hijo deben ser controlados en forma conjunta entre usted y su profesional de la salud.
En cada visita del niño sano, el médico verifica que no haya retrasos o problemas del desarrollo, y habla con usted acerca de cualquier preocupación que pueda tener.

Random Algebra and Colour Friday Quiz
 
There was a random element to the Year 7 and 8’s Algebra lesson this week.  They were asked to classify different types of ‘random’ sweets by colour.  They were then asked to write an algebraic expression for their sweets. 

The groups were then asked to think of other ways that the sweets could be classified; shape, taste etc.  Their final task was to write an equation for the total cost of their sweets.
 
A mathematical sphere was thrown around the classroom as part of Year 7 and 8’s ‘Colour Friday Quiz’.  The pupils were given the opportunity to answer questions based on decimal calculations.  If they were successful they were given a prize. 

If however the pupil was unable to answer the question, they were then able to throw the ball to a friend who could answer for them.

High School - Day Without Walls
 
As their "Day Without Walls" project the MYC1, MYC2 and MYC3 classes participated in a hike up Table Mountain. The rather large group was accompanied by Mr Behne, Mr Milbank, Mr Olivier, Dr Vlachakis, Mrs Franken and Ms Richardson.
 
Our route of ascent was Constantia Corner, which was new to most, and many and varied were the styles of ascent. The race horses were out front, while other less agile members of the group brought up the rear. The long tea break at the top of the ridge was much appreciated, and was followed by a stroll past the Camel Rock (ascended by Luke Eberhard) to the De Villers Reservoir, where empty water bottles were refilled.
 
Here we split into A and B teams. The B team took the "low road" to the Scout Hut, while the A team followed the Hole In The Wall route, via Wynberg cave entrance, to reach the hut a little later.
 
After lunch we meandered over to Nursery Ravine, via the Water Works Museum, and returned to the jeep track for a quick descent back to the Nek.
 
Overall a very enjoyable hike, undertaken in rather hot, humid conditions. We were all very impressed by the spirit displayed by most!
