The pandemic did not allow Innova Schools to hold its Olympics as in previous years. However, the alternative they carried out shows us that they continue to impact education in Peru.
The annual Innova Schools Olympics is an event that moves the entire educational community and is highly expected by students. Teachers propose sports, recreational and artistic activities to reach each one of our students with different abilities, promoting inclusion, respect for diversity, and the practice of the values that we promote at Innova.
With the advent of social isolation, it seemed that the 2020 Olympics would not happen, but ideas emerged from the teachers that motivated them to reinvent themselves, adapt to the situation and finally carry out the event.
The challenge was great, but with the help of the entire Innova Schools team, the students and their families, the 2020 Virtual Olympics were held. "During these weeks it was demonstrated that the energy and enthusiasm of the students allowed them to achieve what they had dreamed of, flowing in each discipline with commitment, passion and dedication to their team", said Lesly Bautista, a teacher at Innova Schools.
The event was a success in spite of the difficult conditions, and this shows us the team's capacity to adapt and innovate in the face of difficult situations and their commitment to the education of Peruvians.
