Starting this academic year, Colegio Alpamayo has been selected as a member of the International Boys’ School Coalition (IBSC). This network of boys’ schools is dedicated to the education and development of boys.
Este ejemplo es real y cotidiano: la vida de un niño es el reflejo de su dinámica educativa. Al igual que una pequeña barca surcando el mar, ellos recorren su existencia bajo diferentes circunstancias. Hay momentos de gran tranquilidad y otros en los cuales soplan vientos que exigen aprender a maniobrar. Incluso, hay momentos en los cuales puede llegar un vendaval con oleajes recios y bravos, para volver luego a los mares calmos.
Rodolfo Chang and Diego Parodi, both Seniors this year, provided a breath of fresh air as hosts of this year’s Family Fun Day. With the assistance of our very own theater teacher, Mr. Jorge Mena, playing the role of Mr. Off, the booming voice heard offstage, this year’s entertainment was as energetic as it was original.
Between June 5th to June 7th, the inaugural Villa María Model United Nations (VMMUN) was held on the Villa María campus. Alpamayo brought 22 of our Seniors to this first year of VMMUN, joining the 859 other students from schools around Lima. This was our Seniors’ first experience with Model United Nations. Our school represented three different countries through various committees: India, Jordan and Iceland.
In keeping with our long-standing tradition of solidarity at our school, our 9th grade students carried out their project of social assistance in I.E. Padre Miguel Marina, located in the district of San Antonio, Auqui Basilio - Jicamarca.
I was privileged to attend the recently held Montessori Model United Nations Workshop in the Pucalán Montessori School in Santiago, Chile. This was an international workshop with teachers from both Chile and Peru.
