Great news from our sustainable school. Wednesday 20th of August we have proudly celebrated the 5th anniversary of Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot together with all our 136 students, their parents and our 18 primary and secondary school teachers.
Each grade prepared little cultural ceremonies and traditional dance presentations thanking for the chance to go to this unique school campus. Teachers and students demonstrated the institutions philosophy to the parents by interviewing children of different grades. The questions asked about “What is democracy for you?” and “Why we need to protect our environment?”, left parents impressed of the vision the students have gained here at Centro Educativo Técnico Chixot.
August is dedicated to the youth in Comalapa and various events on Youth and environmental protection happend. There are several "Colectivas" in town that have come up with activities about violence prevention and environment pollution to reach out to young people of the community. For example, the collective Artists of Comalapa, which currently counts five members and is devoted to art painting. After submitting a proposal to create a large mural, the mayor found a suitable area directly on the marketplace in town. The artists started diligently painting the wall with different scenes showing aspects of life and the environment. Within a week, the artists refined the image sections expressing daliy life scenes and nature as a producer of life. "The Pixcaya River is much polluted so we have decided to highlight a building of Long Way Home as a showcase of sustainable and environmentally conscious life", says Roberto Peren. Last Sunday, at the inauguration ceremony we celebrated with many kids from secondary schools. The painting can now be watched at the daily market shopping.
