One of such activities is the Summer Festival, an event organised in the last Module of School, at the Auditorium of our dear collaborator,  the Cervantes Institute of Bucharest. You may be wondering about the importance of such an event in the development of our students. Organizing and participating in festivals teaches children, among many aspects, to work as a team, to discover their talents, to overcome stage fright. Thanks to our amazing students and teachers, rehearsals are always amazing and fun, and the final performance is a true success!

Childhood, sweet childhood!

It’s wonderful to be a child. As adults, due to stress and worry, we sometimes forget how to enjoy life and the simple things that make our soul happy. Children remind us of taking joy in every details and through them we stay young, full of life and for a few moments we forget all the challenges that surround us.

On the occasion of this wonderful holiday, each year on June 1st at SEK Bucharest we organize a little surprise party for our students.

Sunshine, warmth, colourful balloons, outdoor activities, music, lots of smiles and laughter, a successful day and a very pleasant way to celebrate childhood.
