By BBN Staff: Last night Sacred Heart College (SHC) in San Ignacio, Cayo celebrated their annual ‘Tarde Cultural’ which was held at the Sacred Heart College’s Auditorium.
According to the organizers, annually, third form students are assigned to present on the culture of a Spanish-speaking country as part of the requirements of the school’s Spanish Course.
The students are tasked with conducting a class presentation on the traditions of the country and they are expected do it to the fullest of their abilities.
Students practice the cultural dances of the countries they represent and the presentations are open to the public.
The purpose of the project is to expose the students to the Hispanic culture and language while fostering in them the importance of research and communication skills, as well as teamwork and appreciation for other cultures in the region.
This year, a total of 24 countries were represented including 20 countries with Spanish as their first language.
Bertha Cambranes, Head of SHC’s Spanish Department said that this year “ The students presented a variety of dances and at the end, Panama emerged as the third place winner, The Philippines as second, and Mexico as the first place winner.”
Seven teachers were also honored during the event, including the founders of the initiative: Luz Groenendaal, Elizabeth Ayala and Orlando García.
The Spanish Project has also seen the work of Julio Llinas, Rosalío Penados, Ricardo Canto, and Bertha Morales who have contributed to it over the past 25 years.
