“Pumas, the never told story about Los Andes”
Our 3rd and 4th grade students from both campuses, accompanied by their teachers, visited the Teletón Theater Thursday, June 29th, to see the play “Pumas, the never told story about Los Andes.”
During this entertaining visit, the students were able to know more about those animals that inhabited the Andes Mountains in pre-Hispanic times, some of the altiplano culture and their traditions.
The play, written and directed by Yasmin General, tells the story of the Andean puma as a main character, and his friendly coexistence with other animals such as condors, llamas, foxes, flamingos and owls that inhabited the Andes in pre-Hispanic times. This story is told through animal dolls, a magic aesthetic, music and dances typical of the Andean tradition, crossing the legends of South American peoples, from Ecuador to the southern lands of Chile and Argentina, the deserts of southern Peru and Northern Chile, as well as the Bolivian Altiplano.
DELIBERA TOURNAMENT 2017: Lintac students present a proposal of law for the National Congress
Once again our seniors, along with Professor José Morales Mery, are participating in the Delibera tournament 2017; a national competition of initiatives proposed by young students under the objective of contributing to the country as active citizens.
Delibera is a tournament organized by the National Congress Library and the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, which acts as sponsor and judge of the proposals of young people for the National Congress.
For this important tournament oriented towards deliberation and civic formation, our students developed the Proposal of law “Rh: For a society aware of its blood group”, which was thoroughly researched and delivered to the tournament in early June. In a second phase, they had to contact senators and deputies in search of sponsorships for the law and, consecutively, develop a promotional video of their proposal and a poster to deepen its diffusion. The video was broadcast on YouTube and social networks, becoming massively known.
The congressmen who have supported the initiative of our students are: senators Ricardo Lagos Weber, Patricio Walker, Carlos Montes, Alejandro Guillier and Adriana Muñoz, and the deputies, Ernesto Silva, Pepe Auth, Víctor Torres, Camila Vallejos, Mario Venegas, Vlado Mirocevic, Aldo Cornejo and Karla Rubilar.
If our students reach the goal and manage to pass all the required stages, also achieving a positive final evaluation of this initiative, they will be able to present and defend their proposal of law before the National Congress in October of this year. It should be noted that classifying in the Metropolitan Region is a very difficult task since only seven proposals are classified among the 68 schools that are participating in this opportunity. Even so, our students with their teacher have done an impeccable intellectual and creative work. This is a great initiative and our students know how to defend it. We are confident that they will have an excellent result!
Learning from the Mapuche culture in RuKka Taiñ Adkim
In order for the students to recognize and value the importance of the Mapuche people, as part of the national identity, a visit was made to RuKka Educativa Taiñ Adkim with 1st grade students from both campuses, located in the Faculty of Agronomy of The Universidad de Chile.
In this activity organized by the Social Sciences Department, the children were able to visit the orchard and learn about the various medicinal herbs, taste typical Mapuche food, play typical games such as “palin palin” and learn inside a ruka about the history, Mapuche world view and clothing, being able to interpret diverse ceremonial musical instruments.
