EDITORIAL

Se acerca el gran evento deportivo del Colegio, “La Copa SEK”.

Después de los excelentes resultados obtenidos en otros campeonatos, nuestros atletas están muy motivados e ilusionados.

En nuestra Copa se podrá participar en los siguientes deportes: fútbol, natación, voleibol y karate.

Somos conscientes que el deporte es competición, que los atletas participan con el ánimo y la ilusión de ganar; que a los padres les encanta ver ganar a sus hijos, pero “somos Colegio“ y por lo tanto no podremos olvidar nuestro objetivo principal: “formar”.

Se dice que es más fácil saber ganar que saber perder, por eso a nuestros equipos les enseñamos a saber ganar, sin humillar al contrincante que no enemigo. Y a vencer la frustración cuando se pierde dando el mayor esfuerzo.

Queremos competir, queremos ganar pero sobre todo “jugar” con las reglas del “fair play” y que gane el mejor.

Les esperamos a todos para animar a sus hijos.

Camping in our School
 
Last weekend, Preschool and 1st grade students, demonstrated their adventurous spirit and love of their school. They lived a meaningful and unforgettable experience, where fun, teamwork, creativity, coexistence and independence could be seen everywhere.

They did all kind of adventurous activities, which also gave them the opportunity to face some of their fears.

Our kids showed they are true explorers!

Earth and World Health Day
 
On Thursday April 14 students, teachers and parents got together to celebrate some important dates in Science. World Health Day celebrated on April 7 focus its effort on scale up diabetes prevention, strengthen care, and enhance surveillance. That is why students prepared a reflection and a poem on the importance of taking care of our health.

On the other hand, Earth Day celebrated on Friday, April 22 remind us that trees are our main concern to keep Earth alive. We are now entering the 46th year, so that is why the students joined the movement to continuing inspiring, challenging ideas, initiating passion, and motivating fellow students to take action through songs and poems.

Labor social
 
Los alumnos de 4º de Bachillerato han iniciado sus labores sociales en el marco de las 60 horas reglamentarias establecidas por el Ministerio de Educación.

Todos los alumnos del Nivel Medio deben realizar, antes de finalizar el curso escolar, unas jornadas de labor social con el objetivo de concientizarles y prepararles como jóvenes de bien para nuestra sociedad. En esta oportunidad, los alumnos se dedicaron a la plantación de hortalizas en el huerto de nuestro Colegio, asistidos por expertos representantes del Ministerio de Agricultura.

Walking for Water

65 students from Grades 4-7 participated in the Walking for Water program this year. Walking for Water is an international fundraising and awareness-raising initiative where school children aged 10-15 walk 6 kilometers, carrying 6 liters of water in a backpack. More than 35,000 students from 11 European countries participate each year. Students get an idea of what it is like for African children their age to do this every day due to lack of clean water. As children engage in the physical walk and as they take responsibility to collect the small donations of money, they gain a greater appreciation for what they have: convenient access to clean water every day. They learn the valuable principle of accountability as they collect money to give to those less fortunate. Finally, they come away with a good feeling inside, knowing they helped someone in need.
 
So far, students have been able to raise 550€, which will be given to Akvo.org, the international charity involved in many water projects all over the world. Our school chose a project in Malawi, Africa, where a school is in desperate need of clean water and toilet facilities. We are happy to help those in need while learning about current world issues.
