Pies Descalzos At The International Book Fair Of Barranquilla
Thursday 1 November 2018
Last month, the International Book Fair of Barranquilla (LIBRAQ) took place at the Puerta de Oro Events Center and the Great Malecon. The development of this type of space is fundamental for the culture of the Barranquilleros to meet their objective of being the best educated city in Colombia.
The Pies Descalzos Foundation, with its commitment to Quality Education, adds to the development of these literary and cultural goals. Thus, with the aim of reinforcing the learning that takes place in the classroom within projects such as Storytellers and Reading Clubs, the children of the Educational Institution participated in the activities and experiences proposed within the framework of the LIBRAQ.
The House of Culture of the Governorate of the Atlantic, Comfamiliar, and the team of the International Book Fair of Barranquilla opened spaces for meaningful learning for the boys and girls. Exploring literary figures, storytelling spaces, dance and music presentations, participating in forums and talks, and book presentations by their authors were some of the teaching moments that the Foundation’s children could experience.
At the end of the day the students said goodbye to the fair full of knowledge, motivation and a great deal of new information provided by the different components of LIBRAQ. This is how an extracurricular activity opened the possibility of interacting with different academic aspects in a spontaneous, fun way with a sense of exploration.
We thank the directors of the educational institution Pies Descalzos Foundation for accompanying this space, our educational manager and the Comfamiliar employees for believing together with us that with quality education we can all better ourselves.
