Projecs / Primary
During the primary school stage, our students are inmersed on a series of educational situations that promote the development of abilities that relate to our pedagogical model that are team work, the research, leadership, critical thinking, english language proficiency, management of technological resources and development of social abilities.
We detail here some of the actions that activate this proposal and convert them in to oportunities of expertiental, meaningful and formative learning:
The investigation projets
They are based on the critical humanist approach that caracterizes our institution and in the concept of the role that the student must adopt in his learning.
The fundamental objetives are to develop the image of the child as actor of each of the experiences of learning, encouraging his capacity of investigation by finding meaing in what is learned, making questions and searching for answers.
Program “Hermano Mayor” (“Oldest brother”);
This program is used to teach the responsibility in the Fifth Grade students who are taking care of a First Grade, and become brothers, having the mission to accompany and guide the younger children of the level; in this way, the children of First Grade feel accompanied by an older student.
The Mediator Brigade:
The mediator brigade is conformed by teams of students of fifth grade trained to accomplish functions of mediation between two students that have a conflict in the playground, during the hours of recreation or classes and that they haven’t achieved a satisfactory solution by their own means.
