Semana Internacional
 
En los próximos días estaremos celebrando la Semana Internacional y el Sábado Multicultural o Día de la Familia.

Durante la Semana Internacional, cada grupo de alumnos del Colegio se dedica en las horas de ciencias sociales y/o en las de inglés a estudiar de forma detallada un país relacionado con el origen de nuestras familias.

Representantes de las diferentes embajadas y padres de familia nos visitan y les imparten charlas sobre los respectivos países, con lo que nuestros alumnos reciben una información amena y precisa sobre historia, cultura, arte, gastronomía…

Y lo que es mejor, la Semana Internacional se clausura con el Sábado Multicultural que todos las familias esperan, pero de este tema hablaremos otro día…

Taller Competitivo de Emprendimiento Social
 
Como parte de sus trabajos del TCES, los alumnos de 3º de Bachillerato deben realizar entrevistas con jóvenes emprendedores, en esta oportunidad, realizaron dicha sección con el Sr. Julio Rafael Curie Daneri, Vicepresidente Ejecutivo de la cadena de farmacias Carol. En el intercambio de preguntas, pudieron resolver inquietudes y clarificar sus ideas acerca del proyecto de creación empresarial que están desarrollando.

Competencia de natación
Copa-Ashton

 
El pasado fin de semana se celebró la competencia de natación de la Copa Ashton al que nuestro Colegio acudió invitado. Participamos en ella con un total de 24 niños y niñas, desde 2º a 6º de básica. Muchos de ellos acudían por primera vez a una competencia de natación, sobre todo los más chiquitos, por lo que se les notaba nerviosos antes de participar en sus pruebas.

A pesar de ello, disfrutaron de la misma y aprendieron conceptos y técnicas, que les servirán para las futuras ocasiones que representen al Colegio formando parte del equipo de natación.

SEK Las Américas Students in the UK
 
One of the amazing advantages of being a SEK student is being able to participate in our International Programs. This year, two of our students, Kyara and Vladimir have had the great opportunity of immersing themselves in the British culture.

They are at this moment in our sister school St. John’s International School in England, UK. Not only will they improve their English, but will have a once in a lifetime experience.

Collographs with Mr. Hoffman
 
Collographs are a form of printing using cardboard and other found materials to create an impression with ink on paper. We used damp water color paper for our prints but rice paper, muslin, and any flat surface that can go through a press can be used.

Students were shown the works of Thomas McKnight, an American painter who produced a vast number of serigraphs showing scenes of global destinations through the windows and doors of an interior space. They were asked to create a scene with a view, either from an interior or exterior perspective. 

Students started with a cardboard base, called, the plate. They then added objects to the plate or removed sections of the plate taking into account that the raised objects would print. Students used cardboard pieces, coins, pipe cleaners, buttons, beans, rice, etc. No one knew what the results would be from this process, but everyone was interested to find out. Students then sealed the cardboard with Modge Podge in order for the plate to maintain it’s integrity. 

The results were varied and surprising. In general, everyone got at least one good print from the experience. If interested, they can always go back into the print with colored pencils or water color paint to add to the image.

Gateway to Space
 
The sixth graders visited the Space Exhibition this week. The purpose of this field trip was for students to learn about the various space programs that enable humans to discover the planets that are near and far.

The highlight of the field trip was the simulators. Students gained experience on how astronauts are trained.
Students also participated in a "treasure hunt" exercise where they had to find answers to questions. For example: What kind of animals were sent to space? What was the most famous space animal and what was its name? How do astronauts store their food on the space shuttle? Why is it important for the astronauts to exercise regularly? This was an interesting, interactive exhibition.
