Updated: Feb 27
Bro. Jack Ventura, SM, Ministry Lead of Chaminade-Madonna College Preparatory, Hollywood, FL, sends us this update about the school's new programs emerging out of three of the seven commitments of the Global Compact on Education.
As we look at the commitments of the Global Compact on Education (GCE), the Chaminade-Madonna Educational community addressed three of the goals.
National Girls and Women in Sports Day
To encourage the full participation of girls and young women in education and all aspects of a school community. (#3 GCE commitment)
Wednesday, February 1, was National Girls and Women in Sports Day. In honor of this, Women Engaged (a club at CMCP) collaborated with Athletics and the Office of Advancement to host a Women in Sports Panel after school on Tuesday, January 31. The panelists, made up of alums and staff, spoke to our female student-athletes about their experience playing sports at the next level. Thank you to our panelists Tricia Brown R.N., Valerie Miyares '98, Bridget Callahan '14, and Emily Loutzenhiser '14 for sharing your experiences with fellow Lions!
Women Engaged - Women in Sports Panel, Model UN Students Travel to Boston
To be committed to finding new ways of understanding the economy, politics, growth, and progress that can genuinely serve the human person and the entire human family. (# 6 GCE Commitment)
On Thursday, January 26, The CMCP Model UN team traveled to Boston to the Model United Nations Conference hosted by Harvard University. Our team of 12 students represented the country of Finland in a simulated Model United Nations assembly of over 3,750 students from over 42 countries. Model UN allows students to gain insight into the workings of the United Nations and the dynamics of international relations by assuming the roles of world leaders and global decision-makers. The conference strives to foster a constructive forum for open dialogue on various complex issues, including international peace and security and economic and social progress. This is an exciting opportunity for students to debate pressing issues and draft innovative solutions.
Highlighting Black History Month
To place the value and dignity of the Human Person at the center of every formal and informal educational program, to foster their distinctiveness and capacity to be in relationship with others. (#1 GCE Commitment)
On February 8, students from our CMCP Television Production class developed a TV segment to highlight Black History Month. They understand that Black History Month helps place the dignity of all persons at the heart of the Marianist Charism. Below is the segment they produced.
