Marist works Directors from Cruz del Sur “reimagine education”

Directors of 17 Marist educational centers of Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay met from May 2 to 6 at the Villa Marista de Pilar, in Buenos Aires (Argentina), to deepen the process of educational transformation. The event was also attended by Brothers Marcelo De Brito, Horacio Magaldi and Carlos Huidobro.

Schools from Uruguay (Juan Zorrilla de San Martín and Santa María, from Montevideo), Paraguay (Inmaculada Concepción de Caaguazú) and Argentina (Nuestra Señora Del Rosario and Marcelino Champagnat School, from Rosario; San Rafael, from Mendoza; Manuel Belgrano, La Inmaculada, Champagnat and Macnab Bernal, from the City of Buenos Aires; San José de Morón, San José de Pergamino, Nuestra Señora De Luján, San Luis de La Plata, Instituto Peralta Ramos, from Mar del Plata, and Instituto Ceferino Namuncurá, from Cinco Saltos) participated.

The meeting of directors was coordinated by the School Educational Centers Management Team and led by Xavier Aragay and Jonquera Arnó, who since 2019 have been accompanying the Province in this process of change called “Reimagining Education”, which aims to transform the approach of the educational proposal in schools.

On the first day, the meeting brought together members of the Management Team, school and college referents, and Coordinators of the Animation Teams for a day training action day.

On May 3 and 4, the participants of the first cohort – which has been working since 2019 – presented the prototypes that they launched in their schools to capture the change proposal and enthusiastically presented the results obtained.

On May 4 and 5, the second cohort began to work on the design of their prototypes focusing on how to design the weekly work, how to reform and provide spaces to be able to connect with students in a stronger way, and the activities that they seek to rethink, through the RIEDUSIS method, the daily structures and find a change in the educational approach.
