There is something uniquely beautiful about the way we celebrate Sant Jordi at BFIS. While the culminating fiesta is the highlight for the entire community, the immense amount of learning preceding the event is an equally significant part of the experience.
In our classrooms, we always strive to have children develop a strong sense of self and tap into the qualities that make each child unique. However, we also value the importance of coming together as a community to work toward common goals and in many ways our Sant Jordi celebration provides exactly this opportunity.
In the weeks leading up to the celebration, the children work extremely hard to learning their routines. They show support of one another by helping peers remember different dance steps and practice exhibiting patience as others need more time to memorize the movements. Most importantly, they have the chance to work together and contribute to the success of the overall performance.
There is perhaps no better combination than allowing for children to deepen their appreciation of culture and simultaneously learn life lessons. With that in mind, feliç Sant Jordi a tothom!
