All four students are from the city of Beaumont, California, the same city and school that some
of our students visited last summer.
They are enjoying a variety of activities and outings with their host families and fellow
classmates including going to the mountains and snow, going to the beach, and exploring
different sights in Chillan.
They will also go to Valparaiso and Santiago to sightseeing some of the most interesting places
there.
We hope they enjoy their visit in our school and learn as much as possible from our culture.

ENGLISH WEEK 2019

The Annual English Week at Sebastian School took place from June 10 th to June 14 th .
We held different activities where our students were able to show and share the abilities they have

learnt during their English studies at our school.

The activities included games for the little ones, Public Speaking and Spelling Bee. Every day of the week
had a focus on different classes, starting on Monday with our children of Pre-K and kindergarten, to

ending the week with our Senior and Junior classes.

In this year’s events we also welcomed our exchange students from California who presented a speech

explaining why they decided to come to our school.

Once again, we thank all our students, their families and our school staff for their commitment and great

enthusiasm during the week.

Without everyone’s work and support we would not have had such a good outcome.

Until next year!

STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM

El Departamento de Inglés desea informar que a fines del mes de diciembre recién pasado un
grupo de seis alumnos pertenecientes a II y III medio viajaron a California, Estados Unidos en
compañía del profesor de Inglés Gonzalo Espinoza. Los alumnos tuvieron la oportunidad de
participar del programa de intercambio con el que cuenta nuestro colegio y que consiste en
asistir a clases y vivir con familias norteamericanas que los acogen como parte de ellas.
Sin duda las seis semanas que vivieron en California marcó sus vidas y pudieron aprender e
intercambiar aspectos fundamentales de ambas culturas. Además, tuvieron la gran oportunidad
de viajar a Las Vegas, a Disneyland en Los Ángeles, San Diego, visitar playas y parques.
Antes de regresar a nuestro país el grupo preparó algunos platos típicos de nuestra cocina
como muestra de cariño y agradecimiento en una fiesta de despedida.
¡Felicitaciones a Jazmín Cofré, Sofía Lagos, Joaquín Burdiles, Constanza Mora, Rocío Mora y
Macarena Concha!
