We are so excited to welcome Sara Appino to the project team. Sara has been teaching at the Mal Pais School since the beginning of the School year. Her students are already showing some amazing results and happy faces!

We have also now introduced Art Classes to Mal Pais school, which have been well received by students, parents and the School Director. All materials and resources for the classes are from donations and the class is staffed by volunteer Celina Otero-Monsegur and Sonya. We've been so inspired by the students Art so far, we're looking forward to hosting a fundraiser Art Show in the near future and also entering the National Art festival, which is coming up soon. New research has shown that Art plays an equally important role in education, so we're excited with this new change in the students curriculum. I think you'll agreed the Mal Pais students are a talented bunch. Please enjoy the photo's.
Happy faces!
