The first class of kinder garden students graduates from the Fernando Bolaños private school
Guatemala, November 2011. Banasa celebrated the graduation of 19 kinder garden students from the Fernando BolaÃ±os private rural school in the municipality of Caballo Blanco, Retalhuleu department.
The school was built earlier this year for the children of Banasa workers, and its innovative methodology has made it a model for rural schools. Teachers enthusiastically organized the graduation in which children wore gowns to receive their diplomas, as proud parents took pictures and local authorities watched. At the ceremony parents thanked Banasa for offering their children the opportunity to get a high-quality education.
District education supervisor Elda Orozco mentioned afterwards that this event will motivate parents to continue sending their children to school, so that in they graduate from elementary school in the near future.
Banasa President thanked teachers and parents for dedicating the event to Fernando Bolaños (RIP), the founder of Banasa who played a key role making the school a reality. “We wish academic excellence for these children, so they graduate from elementary school and then from secondary, and later continue on to university or vocational training”, added the president.
