"We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for". from Dead Poet's Society

A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a wonderful morning atmosphere full of love and friendship in our 4th annual preschool poetry festival. Our preschool children showed the Gimnasio La Colina community their outstanding abilities in English, presenting different poems in individual, group and dramatic categories.

Throughout this event, children demonstrated how graceful, exciting, and pleasant is to work with this contemporary literature.

Elementary School Poetry Festival

We are very proud of the results of the 4th Annual Elementary School Poetry Festival that was held at Gimnasio la Colina last Monday March 31st, 2014. Many elementary students participated giving a sample, not only of their English level, but their commitment and self – belonging towards School programmed activities. Our kids recited a great variety of poems, they made us laugh, and enjoy each poem, as the saying goes, "Every child is a poet, all they need is motivation and a guiding hand".

The English and Literature teachers, who sponsored and helped kids to rehearse and get ready for this event did their best. Thanks to their excellent job we could enjoy an awesome evening.

Secondary School Poetry Festival

"Poems of discovery, inspiration, independence and everything else"

Last Tuesday, April 1st, 2014, La Colina celebrated the IVth Annual Secondary School Poetry Festival at night. In this opportunity we had the chance to admire different performances from our students. We had special guests: Parents, staff, classmates and other members of our community. We feel really proud of the results shown by our students. They all received a warm round of applause from the audience.

Reciting poetry well is a balance among a group of qualities that can make a poem resonant or compelling. This is not an easy job, since it's an acquired talent, however; our students demonstrated practice and rehearsals that gave them the assurance they needed, in order to excel at this wonderful event.

The work paid off. Congratulations to students, teachers and staff. The event was a success. Gimnasio La Colina showed talent and confidence. It was a pleasure to be part of the audience and to experience Poetry at its best. Hats off!
