全人教育|国际部中学西班牙语文化传承周 Hispanic Heritage Week


SCLS is home to a varied international community, teachers, and students, with many different backgrounds and cultural differences. But there is something that binds us together, and that is our desire to learn from others, to share the good memories of our school life, and of course, most importantly, to have fun and learn to share, learn and respect while we play.


Every student of the IDMS of SCLS must choose one of French and Spanish on the first day of entry. The cultural week is also an essential component of whole-person education. The idea of the Hispanic Heritage Week at our school is based on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) requirements: Culture, Connections, and Comparisons.

每一位宋校国际部中学的孩子在进入的第一天就要从法语和西班牙语中挑选一门学习,文化周的活动也是全人教育的重要组成部分,在我们学校举行的西班牙裔传统文化周的想法寄于美国外语教学委员(ACTFL) 制定的要求:文化、联系和比较。

Welcome, SCLS United 请欣赏来自学生们的报道

Hispanic Week 

Celebration at SCLS

Walking into the E-building lobby, there’s something that attracts the attention of teachers and students: a vibrant display on the front wall. The International Division World Languages Department set up this Hispanic-themed display as part of the Hispanic Heritage week celebration.


Celebrating Hispanic culture runs from September 15th to October 15th each year. They pass the culture on from generation to generation by celebrating the history, culture, and contributions of Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.


Our school, home to a varied and international community with many different backgrounds and cultural differences, brought celebration into our lives again this year. From October 10th to October 14th, the World Languages Department organized the Hispanic Heritage Week with the goal of learning, making connections, and having fun.
