IPEM 275 Within the framework of the eighteenth anniversary of the National College of Villa María, the protocol ceremony was held to remember the trajectory of one of the most emblematic educational institutions in the city. Mayor Martin Gil was present, along with the entire educational community, to present coupons for the Institute’s acquisition of the microscope.
In front of a central forecourt packed with students, alumni, teachers, former teachers and the general public, the local president highlighted the role of education and the impression the school has made over the years: “Perhaps there has been no greater change than the way of learning.” life of an individual than opportunity, and those who have made it possible in these eighty years have seen an institution that reflects the constitutional aspect of what education means to this city”. Along the same lines, he said that “effective access to the right to learn” allows thousands of young people to “build their own futures based on the dreams and challenges that make them live the wonderful experience of school”.
Overwhelmed by the emotions experienced on the 80th anniversary of the founding, the Director, Alba Tortelli, reveals the history of the Institute: “80 years of many generations of students; where administrative staff, faculty, and students have been part of history that continues to project into the future”. In addition, he stressed that the school “has always been a place for inclusion and diversity”, where it is committed to training responsible citizens. In addition, he instilled “values such as respect, solidarity, honesty and social responsibility”.
Then, the mayor distributed a commemorative plaque with the order for the acquisition of a microscope, which would become part of the equipment that the Institute uses in the development of the school’s activities.
The origins of the National College date back to May 17, 1943, the year in which the institution was created by Decree-Law No. 143,282 of the National Executive Power. Soon after, the school cooperative was established, which is still in force today. Currently over a thousand students and 200 teachers attend the school divided into three shifts: morning, afternoon and night.
After the officers left their message, the public enjoyed a musical performance by the Bar Association’s choir and alumnus of the institution and local artist composer Matias Flores. Current standard holders as well as previous promotions and nearby schools were part of the act. Chief of Staff, Hector Muñoz, Villa Maria Regional Inspector of Secondary Education, Nancy Gamine, councilors and representatives of the provincial government were present.
