2018 SMIC Education Symposium

The Sixth SMIC Education Symposium was held between the 24th and 26th of August at Dom Amando Convent in Salvador, Bahia. Collaborators from the following Schools were present: Immaculate Conception, Capela, Sergipe, St. Eufrásia- Barra-Bahia, Vera Cruz- Recife-Pernambuco and Dom Bosco- Itabaiana-Sergipe, with the latter  responsible for the preparation of this Symposium..

The event had as its theme:  SMIC Education: Breakdown walls, construct bridges. Go evangelize

Based on the Year of the Laity, the talks and all the activitives were directed to the mission of evangelization, lay men and women to make the world better. We who are educators need to be involved in this spirit, as we are the collaborators and integral to the formation of our students.

The Symposium clarified and strengthened ideas in relation to our mission as citizen, educator in  collaboration of forming a just and equal society

The days were enriched with learning and joy.  Each speaker offered  a concentration and participants were emotionally involved taking them to real life, their experiences and concerns; the perspective of making a difference.

Within this context, the speaches were inspiring and provoked us to be a transform- ative participant in the school and world.  One can sense that all depends on us, on our professional and Christian responsibility.

We are grateful for the Symposium which we felt was great.  We need to Evangelize!
