The second week of training for Marist Directors in formal education centers took place from January 21st to 26th in Xaudaró, Madrid. On this occasion, the topics covered included leadership, the culture of the training center, interiority, children’s rights, child protection, and the prevention of sexual abuse. Both participants and speakers have noticed significant progress in the issues addressed during the first session of this course.
One noteworthy aspect of this meeting is that attendees were able to understand and summarize the reality of each of the centers and take practical strategies to implement.
In order to understand the implications of prophetic leadership ‘on the ground’, a visit to the Chamberí school was organized, where three coordinators explained how this Marist leadership style is lived in the center. Participants were inspired by these educators always ready to ‘do the work.’
And since a family that eats together stays together, the day ended with a snack and a theater performance that reinforced several of the principles learned during an intense and satisfying week of training.
See you soon to the participants of this course. We will meet again in the third and final week of training in El Escorial!
