As a farewell to summer in the southern hemisphere, a new experience of the School of Sea and Beach: encounters of play, art and thought, will be held in Mar del Plata, Argentina. The activities will be in the chapel of Acantilados, from March 29 to April 9.
These activities, aimed at boys and girls between 13 and 16 years old, are accompanied by the Municipality of Mar del Plata and are developed in collaboration with the Diocese of Mar del Plata; the Pastoral Surf; the Union of Mechanics and Related of Automotive Transport, SMATA; Mana Seguros Generales, and Laboratorios Pharmamerican.
Throughout February, the first experience of the Sea and Beach School was lived; this time a special two-weeks activity will be held to delve into what was experienced during February, surf the last current of pleasant water temperature, and share experiences through play, art and thought.
The “Sea and Beach School” is a project promoted by young people from Scholas, who was born in Argentina, managed to cross the sea and reach Africa, more precisely Tofo, Mozambique, where a Surf School was developed that continues to operate. Today, that same sea brought them back to Argentina, but enriched by the experience lived in Mozambique.
The project “Surf with Values - School of sea and beach”, takes as its premise the game and what it tells us about life. The center is surfing, a game that invites you to listen, to create yourself and to celebrate, but there will also be art, game and thought activities.
The young people themselves will be the teachers in these classes. Diversity will be another of the characteristics of this school: boys who don’t know the sea will participate, but also boys from the center and north of Mar del Plata, from different socioeconomic levels.
