Yesterday started with an American-style breakfast at the Santiago College to celebrate the independence of the United States, with US teachers participating as special guests.
Thereafter, the traditional assemblies of the 4th of July started by singing the national hymn The Star-Spangled Banner. Wearing typical costumes, the students danced to US country music and made different presentations to show part of the North-American culture to the rest of the school.
The Independence of the United States triggered similar movements in Latin-American countries and in the world, including Chile. It is also a very special day for Santiago College, as it reminds us of part of the history of this nation that forms the basis of the culture and traditions of our dear school.
Very happy 4th of July to the entire SC community!
