All the hard work was worth it
For six years now the staff of the Diospi-Suyana-School have been working hard teaching Christian values and offering children from a rural background an excellent education. At our school we have the 0%-class-cancellation policy. Lessons are more important than festivities and discipline is written in block capitals.
Between two school years it is time to see where we stand. The following charts of a national evaluation of learning (nationwide standardised survey) give a good impression of how our school compares to others.
The above chart outlines the pupils’ reading comprehension. In the left block of the diagram one sees that 2/3 of our pupils have done well (blue/ satisfactorio), some satisfactorily (orange/ en proceso) and only a few landed in the bad category (grey/ en inicio).
The aim of such evaluations of learning is to set one’s own school in as large a comparative framework as possible. The second block shows the average academic performance of our Province Abancay, the third of Apurímac State and the right block shows the national average. We are delighted that our pupils have reached a top position as regards their reading skills.
The evaluation of our pupils’ mathematical skills is even clearer: 71% reached the expected learning goals (blue) and none of our pupils lag behind the national curriculum’s minimum requirements (yellow).
It is at this juncture that I as head of school would like to express my deepest gratitude to all staff who are responsible for these results:
Damaris Brudy taught this class for their first three years. She is a primary school teacher from Berlin and has shown tremendous dedication.
In the year of this evaluation of learning Carmen Narrea Condori from Cusco taught both subjects. Carmen successfully built on the foundation that her predecessor had laid.
God is the giver of all good things. He not only made the founding of this school possible, but has also called capable staff. It is He who give us strength for our work. Therefore we thank Him for these excellent results.
Since the school’s inception Christian Bigalke has been the head of the Colegio Diospi Suyana. The impressive results are also due to his personal merit. Summa cum laude.
