The choice of a motto, as an inspiring phrase for the actions of an academic year, was an idea that arose in Juan de Lanuza in 2014 with the aim of accompanying, motivating and guiding our steps.
At Juan de Lanuza, we believe in the importance of having the chosen slogan present in our everyday lives: in the school agenda, the communications to the families, our social media…so the whole educational community has it present , keeping it alive and making it really happen. From the early “ Educating Together”, “Empowering Our Students” and many others, in 2020-21 comes “Driving Innovation From Within”
Driving Innovation From Within relates to the fundamental objective that we pursue year after year, because at our school we believe in our own possibilities and we want to drive innovation from within. We take ourselves as an example, we know who we are, what our project is, and how we can improve it, constantly training with the best. As a result, we will be able to give each of our students the necessary tools to make a firm commitment to their own education.
We seek to promote educational innovation, which is the essence of the centre, and to transmit it to the students, who also have their own inner strengths, so they can bring their true potential to the fore. The expression in English “driving innovation from within” leads us to these others in Spanish: “impulsar, desarrollar, potenciar”, and it is precisely from this that our motto has been born, and seeks to set the tone for this school year.
We want students to be committed to their learning, to take an interest in what they are doing in the classroom, to keep their attention and their desire to continue learning alive, to find the proposals offered attractive, to feel intensely attached to them, and to come to believe in their own potential. We work to achieve all this with the diversity of Juan de Lanuza students, regardless of their pace, style, competence or personality, through educational innovation. In a situation of global pandemic, in a world full of uncertainty , and always in general , we feel the need to offer various and varied tools to students so that they can achieve the proposed objectives, because each one of them is different and unique, and therefore deserves to be treated this way.
We wish you a happy school year, 20-21… Driving innovation from within!
