Over 40 students from across Latin America will gather in the spectacular surroundings of St George's College, Quilmes between September 18th and 22nd to become Agents of Peace, taking skills, tools and strategies back to their schools and countries to help make the world a better place to live in. They will be exposed to an intense and varied programme of activities to help them understand the roots and causes of conflict and construct solutions for local, national and international issues.
A couple of months ago, Maureen Fleming, LAHC Review Coordinator, and Alan Downie, LAHC Executive Officer, braved the freezing temperatures in Santiago to run two review training workshops in Santiago for teachers from Redland, Dunalastair, The Grange, Craighouse, Lirima College, Lancaster School and the Falkland Islands Schools. The warmth of the hospitality provided by John Mackenzie (Dunalastair) and David Massiah (Redland) and their teams, who hosted the workshops, and the spectacular backdrop of the snow covered Andes were ample compensation for temperatures that dipped below zero at times, whilst the enthusiasm, professionalism and vast experience of the attendees ensured that the workshops were extremely successful and helped to strengthen the pool of reviewers available to LAHC.
