A community must know itself: how it thinks, what it seeks, its values and contradictions. With this in mind, we created the Assembly, a moment when we gather all students of a grade level or segment to carry out activities involving relevant themes, culture, preparing for university or professional life.
Some of the activities proposed in 2017 and 2018 were: constituting the student council, hearing candidates and voting for the one who better represents the class; listening to American or South African universities’ representatives talk about studies and life in a foreign university campus; getting to know the work of a Rio de Janeiro based NGO that works to help war refugees. These assemblies are planned by the school’s leadership along with teachers and students in Middle School and High School.
In Lower School, we have Eleva Time every Friday. These are moments to celebrate cultural activities and hold debates, always seeking to broaden our students’ critical thinking abilities, sensitivity, and cultural repertoire.
