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!!

ENGLISH OPENS DOORS PROGRAM: SPELLING BEE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING REGIONALS

Last week was full of excitement for the English Department at the Sebastian School!

On Tuesday our three 6th grade finalists traveled to Concepción for the second round of the regional Spelling Bee. Sara Hermosilla, Joan Tapia, and Fernanda Hermosilla proudly represented as one of the final nine schools in the Bio-Bio region, and one of only two schools from the Ñuble province. While our spellers unfortunately did not qualify for the finals in Puerto Montt this November, we are still very proud of their achievements in the school’s first year of participation in the contest!

On Thursday we travelled to Concepción once again, this time with 7th grader Diego Maquehue. Diego gave a presentation on the ancient Greek people in the second round of the Public Speaking competition. Diego was one of 11 finalists in Bio-Bio to advance to the second round, and one of three from Chillán. While Diego did not advance to the finals, we are very proud of the hard work and dedication that his performance showed!

Thanks again to all of our students who participated in the English language competitions, both in the school and at the regional levels. Only two schools in Bio-Bio advanced to the second round in both Spelling Bee and Public Speaking, and we are proud to say that the Sebastian School was one of them! We look forward to continuing to participate in these competitions in the years to come.

 

ENGLISH OPENS DOORS PUBLIC SPEAKING COMPETITION (SECOND ROUND)

The English Department of our school is pleased to announce, that the 7th grade student Diego Maquehue has advanced in the national competition of Public Speaking organized by the Ministry of Education through the English Opens Doors Program. Thus, Diego goes to the Regional Tournament, in which he will have to talk about a new topic demonstrating fluency, English language proficiency, among other skills. From this competition, only one student will represent the Bio Bio region in the zonal competition and we expect our student to be the chosen one.

 

Congratulations Diego and good luck in the Regional Tournament.
