School SEK Los Valles
The International Institution SEK aware of the need to offer students experiences meant to allow them to achieve a wide and holistic human and cultural training, year by year and alternately, organizes the Sports or Cultural InterSEK. Delegations of all the SEK schools attend to these major events, and every year a different country hosts the participants.
