Principal's Corner

I am very excited to begin this amazing journey with the Preprimary students, parents, and staff! After working schoolwide for 13 years, it is a pleasure for me to focus my attention, expertise, and care on the youngest students in school.

Colegio Bolivar has continued to deepen our focus on the 21st Century Skills and so has the Preprimary section, embracing Communication as the spotlight of the learning process; communication that favors not only academic and cognitive growth, but also emotional well-being and secure social interactions. While oral language development is known as a “natural-acquisition process”, our teachers purposefully activate conversations through play and inquiry-based activities to foster rich, academic dialogue, student engagement, and higher-level learning.

We will continue building community in the section, within the classrooms and with parents, hoping for a collaborative, co-responsible child-centered approach.

I look forward to an enriching and productive 2018 – 2019; please do not hesitate to contact me whenever needed.

I extend a sincere and warm welcome to our section,

Odette Rumié
