Dear Merici Community,
It fills us with joy – to a somewhat cautious extent – to resume some habits of our life before the pandemic. To go for a walk, without a mask, in our courtyards, fields and gardens, is today a privilege that was seldom appreciated in other times. It has even been interesting to discover different physiognomies emerging from faces we knew only virtually.
Life seems to have returned to a new reality, which forces us to be more reflective and to value what we have, as well as to focus and work even harder than before.
As you know, at Merici we are working on many important lines that will lead us to deepen and strengthen our Pedagogical Model, our convictions and values.
All these components of development are interconnected and transversal. Technology is an integrating element that maximizes learning. Mindfulness is a practice that promotes concentration and well-being.
We will be inviting you shortly to inform you about the progress of our Educational Model and about an alternative around the integrated technology plan.
When something is valued, it should be reflected in the time spent on it. Please enjoy this issue, which highlights precisely what we value and act upon every day.
With warm regards,
Prof. Alfonso García Williams,
Head of School.
