Hello Everyone,

The English Department would like to give a big round of applause and say thanks to everyone that participated and made another English Week at Sebastian School a success.

This was a very different and special English Week because of the pandemic that we are experiencing. But VIRTUAL ENGLISH WEEK, which took place from July 20 to July 24, was just as exciting as the previous years and that was noted by the enthusiastic participation of the students and the cooperation of the parents and guardians.

The total number of participants for all levels was 64 and they made it very hard for the judges to decide on the winners.

The videos uploaded were according to the following levels and categories:

Pre-K and Kindergarten: Sing a Song

1st – 4th Grades: My Profile

5th – 8th Grades: Draw My Life

9th – 12th Grades: Public Speaking

The students that participated were very prompt in uploading their videos and are anxiously waiting for the results.

The English Department is very confident that when the videos are watched more students will be encouraged to participate next year. (You´ll love the videos). It´s amazing to see the good work that our students are doing and during these very special circumstances, their English continues to improve.

The winners will be announced when the school returns after the break.

CONGRATULATIONS to ALL of the participants! GREAT JOB!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Sebastian School welcomes four exchange students this year. They will be attending classes
here for one month.
The students are Isaac Galbraith who is staying with Joaquín Burdiles, from 11 th grade,
Kaitlyn Cavezos who is staying with Macarena Concha from 12 th grade,
Aryanna Hernánedz who is staying with Sebastian Gamboa from 9 th grade, and
Porter Galbraith who is staying with Jorge Tapia from 6 th grade.
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
We hope they enjoy their visit in our school and learn as much as possible from our culture.


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!
The English Department
