Almerimar , September 2017.
Dear families, I am delighted to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year.
Once again, we start the year with renewed vigour and enthusiasm to tackle the academic and learning challenges ahead.
This new school year comes with challenges, and the opportunities these bring, driven by a changing educational reality stemming from new trends, teaching methods and the unstoppable emergence of technology in all aspects of education. SEK Education Group, a pioneer in this field for 125 years and that celebrated its anniversary this year, continues to be at the forefront of our students’ learning process, and we therefore wish to thank families and the school community for their continued support for SEK Alborán’s education project.
I would like to briefly inform you on what is new for this year and the major objectives we have set for the new school year.
In the field of education management and communications we have launched a new MySEK digital platform that will be rolled out over the year. MySEK will be the new one- stop-shop for all digital resources used by families, students and teachers, simplifying and streamlining all processes related to management and communication. We will continue with the extensive international exchange scheme and with our participation in MUN models, and the first exchange between SEK primary schools is set for this year, aiming to share learning experiences between students and teachers at different schools. At the same time, we will continue to promote healthy lifestyle habits and sports from an early age, with federated teams in different sports training at the SEK- Alborán Sports Club.
And, naturally, we would like to inform you on one of our most important objectives, our students’ academic results. I am delighted to be able to share with you again this year the outstanding results obtained by our students in the EvAU university entrance exams and the IB Diploma Programme, enabling the students graduating from Year 2 Bachillerato to go on to study degrees at top universities in Spain, UK, Holland and the USA.
Therefore, I would once again like to thank you for the trust you have placed in the teaching team I represent, with our assurance that we are tackling this new school year with commitment, responsibility and dedication with the goal of meeting the highest possible standards you are accustomed to.
With best wishes for the new school year, warm regards,
Luis Carlos Jiménez Gámez
