Este Jueves 3 de Diciembre, alumnos de 6tos, 7mos, 8vos, 1eros, 2dos y 3ros Medios participaron de la ceremonia “Book Crossing”, llevada a cabo en el Auditorio del colegio. Fue una maravillosa oportunidad para celebrar a la literatura y a aquellos libros, autores, personajes, historias y fantásticos mundos a los cuales nos transportan de manera mágica y mística.

Un libro es para atesorar, nunca para guardarse para sí mismo. La experiencia ganada al explorar la literatura es algo que necesita ser compartido.

“Book Crossing” en The Mackay School significa compartir un libro y recibir otro a cambio. Invitamos a alumnos de Senior School a ser parte de esta experiencia trayendo sus libros de lectura del Programa de Literatura en Inglés 2015, lo cual garantizará que recibirán las lecturas correspondientes a 2016 en intercambio.

Una parte importante del desarrollo intelectual y emocional de nuestros alumnos como miembros de la comunidad IB responde a la exploración de los maravillosos mundos que presenta la Literatura. Las asignaturas de Inglés y Español en The Mackay School ofrecen una amplia variedad de títulos y géneros literarios, entre clásicos y contemporáneos, los cuales les permiten enriqueces su bagaje cultural y reflexionar sobre la forma en que se ven a sí mismos y a aquellos de los rodean.

¡Estamos felices que nuestros profesores y alumnos hayan disfrutado del encuentro místico con la Literatura que hemos tenido hoy!

On Thursday, 3 December, pupils from Years 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 participated in the Book Crossing Ceremony, which was held in the school Auditorium. It was an opportunity for everyone to celebrate literature, books, authors, characters, their stories and the wonderful worlds that they allow us to visit.

A book is something to cherish, but never to keep for yourself. The experience you gain when you explore literature is something that needs to be shared.

Book Crossing means sharing a book and receiving one for free. We invited Senior School students to bring their readers from the English Literature programme 2015, which will guarantee that they will receive the readers that correspond to 2016 for free.

An important part of our students’ intellectual and emotional growth as IB students responds to their exploration of the wonderful worlds that Literature presents. The English and Spanish subjects at The Mackay School offer a wide variety of titles and literary genres, both classic and contemporary, which allow them to enrich their cultural background and to reflect on the way in which they see themselves and those who surround them. 

We are glad that teachers and students enjoyed the mystical encounter with literature that we had today!
