SIL SUPPORT NETWORK
ORGANIZATIONS THAT CONTRIBUTE WITH SIL
STUDENT UNION (CESIL)
The Student Union of San Ignacio de Loyola School is a place for participation and dialogue, where the students, through their democratically elected representatives, take upon the conduction of the CESIL, with a cooperative spirit. This aims to promote the invigoration of principles such as companionship, understanding and cooperation among the members of the school community.
PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION (APAC SIL)
The SIL Parents Association is a significant part of the Educational Community. It was conceived with the purpose of helping the school in educational tasks, by organizing educational and community activities, coordinating actions among fellow parents and suggesting and proposing ideas which are oriented to the improvement of the pedagogic task.
The association also provides support to conferences, meetings, debates and discussions, on issues related with the family and education itself.
Consulting Council of Former Presidents of the APAC SIL (in formation)
It is made up of Former Presidents of the Parents’ Association, acting as an advisory board to contribute to the harmonic growth of the SIL family.
Former students help out the school contributing with ideas and suggestions. They also contribute to the growth of institutional identity through multiple activities that are unique to SIL students.
Teachers’ Training Program
This Program is carried out through teachers meetings, learning workshops and an annual gathering, which focuses on teachers’ performance.
Within the gathering there is an atmosphere leading to dialogue and insight on the curricula and the teaching, on the evaluation of learning and teaching, also there is work done on the methodologies and technologies being used; analysis of the achievements, the difficulties and problems that arise in the classrooms. Each one of the above actions promotes the development of planned and organized teaching activities, which are always subject to evaluation based on fixed criteria.
This program is carried out through Teachers Rooms with leaning seminars and an Annual Forum for the discussion of current work issues.
