CREATIVITY IS OUR
WAY OF DOING AND THINKING

We looked for a model that adjusted to the scholar reality, and that was how we got to two institutions we have relied on:
The 5 habits that we develop to strengthen the creativity muscle are:
Bill Lucas, Founder and Director of "Centre for Real-World Learning" of the University of Winchester in England, and creator of the model of creativity that our school has been implementing for three years, visited Frutillar and gave a training course to our teachers. In it we deepen in strategies to keep strengthening the 5 habits of mind in our students. It gave us more energy and inspiration to persist in developing creativity in our students. We are certain that creativity is a powerful instrument to improve their capacities in both, the scholar life and in their lives in general!
We are convinced that Creativity has a strong and significant impact in the cognitive development of students; that it improves the quality of their learning, increases pupil´s motivation in their own learning process and that it has the potential to strengthen the teaching work.
Paul Collard, Director of CCE, has accompany and advised us since 2016 in the road of incorporating creativity in the centre of the learning processes of our school.
Our school supports the Creative Learning Program that is applied in 12 schools of the Frutillar Commune, with the help of CCE and PLADES.
