National Debate League

On Monday 30th we participated in the 3rd round of The National Debate organized by Debate Group. We spent a very fruitful afternoon at Champagnat School interacting with students from different schools, listening to debates and debating of course.  Some of our students even had the chance of attending a workshop for Judges,in order to learn about debate criteria when judging. We had the honour of being represented by two different teams : Joaquín Diaz Walker, Francisco Okecki and Sebatian Borda formed one team and  Ignacio Rela, Pablo Piñero Pacheco and Agustín Campion  were the members of the other team.
One of our teams  debated on » Politicians should resign when suspected of corruption» as members of the Proposition,  they succesfully  convinced the judges that the motion should pass. Congratulations Pablo, Ignacio and Agustín on your excellent performance!
Moreover , we were   congratulated on by one of the coaches because in spite of our students little experience they all did a great job and returned to school with a victory!
We also organized an assembly  at school on On Friday 18th :  all Senior School gathered to watch some of our students debate on the motion : «This House supports Death Penalty » It was a wonderful experience , we could all witness what a real debate looks like.
We are delighted to see so many of our students attending an optional workshop with so much enthusiasm and interest. We hope more and more students will be part of this workshop where students develop amazing skills to be effective speakers !
We are moving beyond. At Las Cumbres there are no boundaries and our students face different  challenges with success!

La educación es un acto de fe

Fe de los docentes, en que una buena clase es la posibilidad de un buen camino para el futuro de sus alumnos. Fe de los padres, cuando eligen nuestro proyecto educativo para sus hijos (el proyecto más importante de sus vidas). Fe de los alumnos, que al dar cada día el "presente" nos están dando su palabra. Fe en Dios que nos guía y sostiene. Docentes, alumnos, directivos y padres, creemos en Las Cumbres. Y como comunidad educativa sabemos que para la construcción de un país sólido, la educación es la puerta grande. Estos son nuestros Principios y Objetivos.
