Recently, our school community pulled together to repair the road leading to Escuela Caracol. After more than three years waiting for support from the municipality, we decided to put a solution to this problem. Walking this path every morning can be truly uncomfortable and even dangerous, especially during the rainy season.
Teacher Ervin was in charge of organizing all the families and communicating with them. Thus, while some were physically working on the road -cleaning brush, moving earth and stones, etc- others were working in the kitchen to serve water, fruit and atol (cornflour drink).
The work lasted two days, Saturday and Sunday, and even some children came to support and enjoy the work. Surely, a great example of what a united community can accomplish when they stay together. Waldorf education at its finest!
