So far in April we have had to endure rain and thunder, but the worst is not come yet! This week is forecasted thunderstorm. But the HUB is ready and prepared. Here we leave you some curious facts about the rain and the storm, because rain can also be fun!
1. Lightning has enough energy to toast 100,000 bread.
2. You less wet walking under the rain that running under it.
3. The raindrops have no way to tears as believed
4. The smell of rain is caused by the impact of falling drops. These release different “aerosols”. It release bacteria and viruses too.
Be careful with the rain! And start looking it with different eyes, because rain can also be fun!!
This week we have witnessed a “week of football.” This corresponds to the struggle to qualify for the Fifa World cup 2018 in Russia. The teams that compete at this stage are only South American. This week there have been matches like Brazil v/s Uruguay that it is finished in a tie (2-2). Another good match was Peru v/s Venezuela that finished with the same score.Today, 29 of March, a very important match to us was played!! But Why?… Because, Chile plays v/s Venezuela. Our team lost to Argentina 2-1.Today other 4 countries play too. The football matches are: Colombia v/s Ecuador and Uruguay v/s Peru.We hope that Chile wins this stage, to be closer and closer to Russia 2018.
On April 24th and 25th the students of 10 th grade had their “Operativo Social”, that took place in the small town of Culipran, Melipilla.
In the company of their 12 th grade mentors and their teachers, our students repaired 13 houses of very poor people, to protect them from the rain and the cold of winter, completing a community service activity with some of the poorest people of the society.
This experience was very beautiful, because all the students had the chance to share with different families that had completely different lives. Also they had the possibility of having a moment of reflection and meeting among themselves.
