ICMUN

On Saturday 27th of November, took place the first in-person conference after the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020. The school’s MUN club travelled to Punta del Este by bus in order to participate in the third installment of ICMUN (International College MUN).

It was a fun experience for the new members of the club since they were presented with the chance to connect with other students from grades they don’t usually relate with. In addition, the International College received us with their arms wide open and made their extraordinary campus available for all the schools. We had a blast visiting other MUN fanatics that we weren’t able to see for two years and our weekend was definitely uplifted by the reunion.

The conference was also extremely successful for our club because four of our fellow members passed their resolutions in three different committees. Leah Cowley, a 2nd year student, earned eight signatures in the General Assembly 6 (GA6) that focuses on legal matters; Liat Preidikman was representing Brazil in the Human Rights Council (HRC) when her resolution was approved by most of her committee; and finally, Florencia Lombardi and Fiorella Rossi participated in the Security Council (SC) as the United States of America in which they fought dedicatedly for the signatures of their fellow countries.

The club held an awesome end of year reunion for a spectacular club by getting together for a barbecue. It celebrated the culmination of a victorious year and the beginning of a brand new journey. During this activity, MUN director Diego Paseyro gave a small speech with the iconic comment “seremos nerds pero somos el grupo más cool del colegio”, which was not only accurate but very funny.

Furthermore, there was a drastic change of members in the MUN club since there was a lack of students at the beginning of the school year. Now, the club has around 30 members that are devoted to this extracurricular activity. This brought a light of joy to our club as it was lacking that excitement of freshmen and younger generations. Moreover, we hope we can incorporate even more new members to spark an interest in worldwide issues.

Lastly, we would like to express our gratitude to the year 5 students who were able to organize and make this club fun again, as well as the MUN coordinators, Liliana Daza and Diego Paseyro, who are always there if help is needed. We wish to see you all again next year and we are also looking forward to welcoming new members to the school’s MUN club. Thank you for an incredible year!

 

Happy holidays from the TBS MUN club.

4YL - CONCURSO DE PICNIC

Con el objetivo de despedir el año con la generación de 4YL, en el espacio de Form se llevó a cabo un concurso, donde los alumnos, en grupos de hasta 6, debían poner toda su creatividad y habilidades culinarias en juego, para llevar a cabo un picnic que priorizara la comida saludable, lo casero sobre lo comprado, donde la decoración sería tenida en cuenta, y por supuesto, donde se contemplaran las medidas de higiene correspondientes. Los docentes aún están deliberando un equipo ganador, ya que, como lo muestran las fotos, hubo varios candidatos sobresalientes.

DESEM

Last Monday, the workshop “Tools for the Future” was held at the School for 5YL and 6YL students. It was led by Juanita González, from Desem - Junior Achievement Uruguay and accompanied by volunteers from HSBC Bank. It was an optional workshop in which students worked on different dynamics, such as the “Circle of life” and the creation of a “Personal SWOT”. Students also learned how to write a CV and to prepare for a job interview. Without a doubt, a different and enriching experience for all participants.

4YL - 5YL iHackatic - Universidad de Montevideo

El 9 de noviembre tuvimos la oportunidad de participar en la final del desafío iHackatic de la Universidad de Montevideo, el cual consistía en resolver un problema de una empresa mediante el uso de la tecnología. A nosotros nos tocó la semillera PGG Wrightson Seeds, y logramos obtener el primer puesto en quinto año, por lo cual se nos fue otorgado una beca del 60% para estudiar informática.
Creo que fue una experiencia sumamente valiosa, ya que nos enseñó las necesidades y funcionamientos de una empresa, y además logramos mejorar nuestras habilidades de exposición al tener que argumentar nuestra propuesta frente a un panel de jueces.
Alentamos a que otros estudiantes participen del desafío el año siguiente, y agradecemos al Colegio y a la UM por permitirnos participar de esta instancia.

ALUMNI: STUDYING ABROAD

Special Class for 4YL: Studying abroad

In the context of the Vocational/ Occupational Programme, during the Form period our 4YL students had a special class with the school university counsellor in which they explored the process of applying to study abroad. 

Students were introduced to different reasons that usually motivate students to study abroad as well as to the aspects to take into consideration when taking into account this study option.

As there is nothing better than sharing experiences with students who have been through the same process, four former students were invited to collaborate with this special class. 

  • Juan Martínez, who is living in Buenos Aires, where he is working as an artist and studying Business Management and Administration at Universidad de Palermo, motivated them to follow their dreams.  

  • Sol Slinger who is at NHL Stenden in The Netherlands studying International logistics highlighted the importance of following deadlines set in the application process. 

  • Agustina Lagrenade who is studying music in Berklee College of Music highlighted how much she grew up with the experience of living on her own and meeting people from different walks of life.     

  • Agustina Lombardi, who studies Comunicación at UM, joined our class from Universidad de Navarra in Pamplona, where she is currently doing an internship. She shared her enthusiasm and how enriching this experience is for her not only as a student, but as a young person.   

All of them had in common their openness and willingness to help younger students! A real pleasure to have them back, at least, for a while!

The U13 field hockey category won the LID tournament. 
In a complicated year where training began in February and had to be stopped in March due to the pandemic, the players (1YL students) continued training via zoom until they resumed training at the beginning of July.
They played several games in the series to qualify to the semifinal, which they won in a round-robin match against Colegio Jesús María, earning the right to play the final against Ivy Thomas School. 
The one game final was played last Tuesday and they won 2-0 to win the championship undefeated.
