¨De nuestras aulas a su pantalla¨                                     30 de marzo 2017

Antiguos Alumnos regresaron a su Colegio.
Un grupo de 4 antiguos alumnos, graduados en nuestro Colegio en diferentes promociones, regresaron de nuevo a sus aulas.

Después de pasear por las instalaciones valoraron muy positivamente los cambios realizados, especialmente el salón de video conferencias y el incremento en las tecnologías.

Estos graduados volvieron a sus aulas de la infancia, pero ahora lo hicieron como excelentes jóvenes profesionales.

El objetivo fue interactuar con los alumnos de bachillerato a los que hablaron de su experiencia por la universidad y de sus primeros años de vida laboral.

Recordaron las actividades que el SEK como Institución Internacional realiza, teniendo palabras y recuerdos muy positivos sobre los intercambios internacionales, animando a sus jóvenes compañeros a participar en ellos.

Reconocieron la excelente preparación académica recibida en las aulas del SEK, lo que les permitió integrarse en las universidades sin mayores inconvenientes, aunque eso sí, les recalcaron la necesidad del esfuerzo y el trabajo bien hecho ya que el mundo universitario es muy exigente.

La clave del éxito: SER CADA DÍA MEJORES…
Nuestra gratitud a:
  • Ángel Ferreira (Promoción 2011)
  • Pamela Abreu (Promoción 2010)
  • Stephanie Báez (Promoción 2010)
  • Anne Marie Fernández (Promoción 2010)

Día del estudiante

 El pasado viernes día 24, se celebró con gran entusiasmo, el esperado “Día del Estudiante”. Desde temprano, los alumnos cantaban con gran alegría el himno dedicado a los estudiantes y esperaban con ansias las actividades organizadas por el Club de Alumnos. 

Se realizaron diversos juegos, a lo largo del día, entre ellos: baila el aro, la silla caliente y saltar la cuerda. Para finalizar la jornada, se llevaron a cabo los ya tradicionales concursos “Buscando a Sekilin y Sekilina” con los alumnos de básica, y “Mr. and Miss. SEK”, con los alumnos de secundaria.

Video chat with St. John’s International School in England

As part of the activities for the “International Week”, several classes have enjoyed of a video conference with one of our sisters school.

Last Tuesday, the 7th graders talked with their peers at St. John’s school, England. They prepared a wonderful presentation for our students, showing the traditional features on the British culture.

It was the best way to get to know from a country, having first-hand experience. Our very eager students were so excited that they answered some questions back and even showed some of the typical dances in the Dominican Republic: merengue and bachata. A catchy rhythm that made everyone move even just a little bit.

Learning about Italy

The 9th grade students have been studying about Italy. After learning about its geography, they learnt about its volcanoes and mountains, including the famous Monte Bianco (Mont Blanc).

They also studied their inventions and discoveries. The Italian explorers Christopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci discovered the Americas while Marco Polo explored the East. Leonardo da Vinci was a scientist and artist who was the first to prove the world is round and not flat and Alessandro Volta, was the pioneer who did studies in electricity, hence the name 'Volt' describing a unit of electricity.

What they loved the most of learning and making some of their famous dishes: pizza and pasta. Pizza is surely one of the most famous exports and in Italy and the Italian pasta is renowned worldwide and there are more than 200 different shapes.
SEK Budapest 5K Mini Marathon – Running for Charity &  Creating Traditions
On Monday March 20th, 2017 we had the very first annual SEK Budapest Marathon: The SE5K!
This great day represents the beginning of spring, and was made even more special for us by the fact that SEK Budapest students, teachers, staff, alumni, parents, and friends came together for the first ever SE5K charity marathon.
“The SE5K was not only an amazing sporting event organized by the school and students for the entire community, it was also a fund-raising campaign for the Gyermekkor Foundation, which works in conjunction with the Madarász Street Children's Hospital in Budapest.” (Viktor Weisz – Student Body President)
Through this campaign we gathered a grand total of 400,000 HUF (1,400 USD) and 100% of the collected donations were given to our long-time partner, the Gyermekkor Alapítvány, for the purchase of an urgently needed medical machine called a Criticare Patient Monitor for the Intensive Care Unit of the Cancer and Leukemia wing of the Children’s Hospital.
“The Marathon was held at a sports center where everything the runners would need was provided, all the way from the actual high-quality rubber track to tents filled with refreshments and healthy snacks where the runners could go to relax after the run and to prepare before it. We even had an arts tent where the students and Mr. Patrick made posters to cheer their favorite runners” (Viktor Weisz)
Some of the highlights of the event were definitely the presence of the two guest speakers: Dr. Tünde Szabó, Hungarian Secretary of State for Sports and Dr. János Kemény, renowned children’s doctor and president of the Gyermekkor Foundation. They spoke about the increasing importance of sports in our lives, as well as the important values of compassion and caring that are present both in sports and medicine.
In the Second 5K race our Grade 10 student Barnabás Hamar outran his personal record, finishing 5km in 20minutes 09seconds and winning the gold medal, in the 3km race Grade 11 IB student Zsombor Török won first place with 14minutes 38seconds. These are among the first records set for the SE5K, which will become a standard for years to come.
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the core team of student organizers, Lidija Latincic, Christian Kinnell, Benjamin Szabó, Lilla Naffa, and Viktor Weisz, for their stellar work, without which this event would not have been the great success that it was. Each of you is a true role model for your peers.
Furthermore I would like to thank all the participants and runners for joining us on this special occasion, the teachers and staff for their hard work, the SEK families for making a huge difference with their donations for the Children’s Hospital, Dr. Tünde Szabó for inaugurating the event, and the Gyermekkor Foundation for giving SEK Budapest the opportunity to work with them for this great cause!
“The SE5K has taught us about sportsmanship and modesty, generosity and community; I really look forward the ones in following years.”

Musical Rascals Inting

We have been learning about Transport in the Foundation Stage. Teacher Melanie, from Musical Rascals, came in to present a lovely drumming lesson using Transport as the theme. She told the students a lovely story about a race that the Musical Rascals participated by using the 4 different modes of transport to reach their final destination. The students participated by following instructions and played the beats on a djembe drum for the various sound effects during the story. One of the highlights of the story was singing the “Wheels on the Bus”- Musical Rascals style.

Teacher Melanie then played various listening games using drumming with the students. Some of the students were then given the opportunity to demonstrate some drum beats which the rest of the group had to copy. Each student was given an educational colouring activity to take home. The students thoroughly enjoyed this lovely interactive musical activity.
