Plaque of the Beautiful Character
The Plaque of Beautiful Character recognizes the student who is distinguished by respect for human dignity, as well as by their kind treatment with others. This conviction is the result of self-knowledge and formation of their autonomy. The nobility of this character leads the student to live with chivalry and simplicity; frankly and without hypocrisy; with a desire to serve but without falling into servility; with tolerance, but without giving up leadership; with a sense of companionship, but away from all complicity and with a multifaceted spirit, but clear in its principles. Detached from all desire for leadership, but proud of himself.
After identifying the nominated students, the Board of Middle School Teachers awarded this distinction to Nicolás Hernández Cardona from the Eighth A course.
Regarding High School, the teachers gave the Plaque of the Beautiful Character to the student Samuel Navarro Giraldo, from the Eleventh B course.
The Hiking Badge highlights the right balance between physical qualities and spirit that should distinguish the good excursionist. A happy, enthusiastic, supportive and adventurous spirit, which is reflected in the close dialogue that the student establishes with the environment, with the new cultural conditions, with his classmates and teachers. All these qualities that the student possesses flourish in the pines of the School and come to life, particularly on excursions, when faced with situations that demand the greatest care, the highest responsibility, the best sense of respect, and that only one character trained in temperance and nobility, can prudently circumvent.
After identifying the middle school nominees, the teachers decided to award this recognition to the student Antonio González Sánchez, from the Ninth C course.
The high school teachers recognized the hiking spirit of the student Pablo Enrique Quintero Callamand, from the Eleventh C course.
This award is the recognition of that course that exalts the school spirit and its collective values, such as healthy union, the sense of coexistence, belonging and loyalty. These collective values should have been built based on tolerance, solidarity with the problems of others, respect for unbreakable principles and commitment to common causes. The scale of values of this course must have led its members to forge solid ties of friendship and to develop fair mechanisms to resolve their conflicts.
In the Middle School Section, the course that received this recognition was Ninth A, oriented by teachers Juan Carlos Sánchez and Sonia Calderón.
In the High School section, the course that the was awarded the Fellowship Cup was the Tenth A course, from the teacher Alejandra Munar.
The Gimnasio Moderno congratulates all the students who obtained these recognitions and invites them to continue committed to academic challenges, fulfilling their duties and building their character as good students, an example for future generations.
