A lovely Harvest celebration was held today at school where we thanked for the fruits provided to us by nature and emphasized the importance of caring for those most in need, through this year’s motto: “I care for my brother.”
In this regard, the School Headmistress Miss Lorna Prado Scott stated that we should not only help poor people, as the weaker “brother” may be on our side in the classroom suffering due to bullying, or because he has no friends, or for any other reason.
Harvest seeks to develop in our students a capacity to be sensitive to the community needs, so that they can make their creativity, their talents, their time and their work available to those most in need and, at the same time, enrich by sharing and learning from other realities. For this purpose, two videos and one radio-play were presented during the assemblies. The radio play was created by High School students who characterized daily life situations where each ones’ good actions may mean a positive change in society.
Present during the celebration were the Rabbi from the Israeli Circle of Santiago Gustavo Kelmeszes, the Methodist Chaplain of our school Óscar Espinoza and the Deacon of the Catholic University José Miguel Galilea.
