Programa “Estudios en el Extranjero

 

“Study Abroad” Program

The English Department is pleased to inform all the Educational Community of Sebastian School that, on December 6th this year, the first students participating in our institutional pilot project will set off a journey to the United States as part of the program “Study Abroad”. Our aim is to provide them with support and encouragement to continue improving their language skills (English), and also with new opportunities and experiences to help them become more integral people.

This program, as it is already known, consists in traveling to the United States for a period of three months, in which our students will live with carefully selected families that will host them and take care of them as their own children. These students will attend school and will be immerse in the usual American life, in a safe environment that has as main objective the use of English in a context different from the one in the classroom. This initiative also seeks to promote cultural exchange and to actively participate in extra-curricular activities.

The students will fly to Beaumont city, located in the state of California. They will be attending classes at Highland Academy Charter School, Institution in which they will have a memorable life experience that will fill them with knowledge and unforgettable moments that will make them grow not just academically, but also, personally.

This is a unique opportunity, which has been carried out with the help of the participating students’ parents themselves along with the Parents Council, which contributed with an amount of money for passports and part of the flight tickets cost; and also, the School Supporter Miss Janet Molina, who likewise contributed with an amount of money for the this program. We would also like to thank all our dear students who enthusiastically collaborated those days in which they were allowed to wear casual clothing so as to collect as much money as possible and finally, we want to thank all those who helped us make studying abroad a reality!

Bon voyage to our students from the 9th grade: Catalina Cea, Alex Hermosilla and Diego Maquehue, who have demonstrated exceptional academic ability, commitment to their school and passion for exploring other cultures!!

Enjoy!

Programa “Estudios en el Extranjero”

El Departamento de Inglés se complace en informar a toda la comunidad educativa de Sebastian School que, el día 6 de diciembre de este año, los primeros estudiantes que participan en nuestro proyecto piloto institucional emprenderán viaje a los Estados Unidos como parte del programa de “Estudios en el Extranjero”. Nuestro objetivo es brindarle, a nuestros alumnos, apoyo y estímulo para que sigan mejorando sus habilidades con el idioma inglés, y también brindarles nuevas oportunidades y experiencias que los ayudarán a ser personas más integrales.

Este programa, como ya se sabe, consiste en viajar a los Estados Unidos por un período de tres meses, en el que nuestros estudiantes vivirán con familias cuidadosamente seleccionadas que los hospedarán y cuidarán de ellos como a sus propios hijos. Estos estudiantes asistirán a la escuela y estarán inmersos en la vida americana cotidiana, en un ambiente seguro, que tiene como principal objetivo el uso de Inglés en un contexto diferente al de la sala de clases. Esta iniciativa también busca promover el intercambio cultural y el participar activamente en actividades extra-curriculares.

Los estudiantes viajarán a la ciudad de Beaumont, ubicada en el estado de California. Ellos asistirán a clases en el Highland Academy Charter School, institución en la que van a tener una experiencia de vida memorable que los llenará con conocimiento y momentos inolvidables que los harán crecer no sólo académicamente, sino también, en lo personal.

Esta es una oportunidad única, que se ha llevado a cabo con la ayuda de los propios padres de los estudiantes participantes junto al Centro General de Padres, que contribuyeron con una cantidad de dinero para pasaportes y una parte del costo de los pasajes; también gracias a la Sostenedora del establecimiento, señorita Janet Molina, que de igual manera contribuyó con una cantidad de dinero para el programa. También nos gustaría agradecer a todos nuestros queridos alumnos que colaboraron con entusiasmo aquellos días en los que se les permitía usar ropa de color con el fin de reunir la mayor cantidad de dinero posible y, por último, queremos dar las gracias a todos los que nos ayudaron a lograr que los estudios en el extranjero sean una realidad!

Buen viaje a nuestros estudiantes de Primero Medio: Catalina Cea, Alex Hermosilla y Diego Maquehue, que han demostrado habilidad académica excepcional, compromiso con el colegio y pasión por explorar otras culturas!!

Disfrutenlo!

ENGLISH FESTIVAL COMPETITION

This month the Sebastian School took part in the annual Ñuble Net English Festival at Escuela Italia in Chillán. After school-wide auditions last semester, six acts were chosen to represent the school. Fernanda Vildósola (3rd grade), Michelle Carmona (5th grade), Benjamin Sánchez and Luna Fuentes (6th grade), and Ximena Aguayo and the duo of Sebastian Suarez and Ignacio Caro (7th grade). All of the participants spent months practicing both their vocals and English pronunciation. After much preparation our students performed wonderfully! They were all fantastic, but we are particularly proud of Sebastian and Ignacio, who came in 3rd place out of the entire province! Congratulations to all the students!!
