Through different lines of work, like parent talks by sections, gatherings of Tejiendo Palabras (weaving words), and links with RedPapaz, we seek to create spaces for collective construction where we can share experiences, resolve concerns or propose solutions to different problems of interest. We aim to find ways to better as a community through interaction, participation, and linkage building.
Why a school for parents at Colegio Andino?
Because we seek, above all, our own development to better contribute to the development of our children
Because we constantly question ourselves and sometimes feel insecure about what we do with our children.
Because we don’t always know a lot about the reality that our children and youth live.
Because we seek spaces for the reconstruction of our social fabric.
RedPaPaz is a network of mothers, fathers, and caregivers, which seeks to generate capacities for adequate protection of the rights of children and youth in Colombia. It works on five transversal axes: Parental Involvement, Family-School Alliance, Protective Environments, Child Development, and Rights of children and youth.
The Colegio Andino is a member of this vital network
School mediation is an exercise in respect, dialogue, and joint decision-making. It is a technique to resolve conflicts between two or more people. A mediator guides and accompanies those involved in the search for solutions, easing communication and helping them negotiate.
Who are the Mediators?
The Mediator program has students from the Intermediate and High School Section. They have been trained in conflict resolution and have the necessary tools to support daily conflicts arising within the school.
Principles for mediation to work
Voluntariness: The parties freely decide whether or not to participate in mediation.
Decisions in dialogue: The parties can make decisions concerning their conflict. The mediator does not impose any type of solution; they are neither a judge nor an arbitrator.
Neutrality and impartiality: The mediator does not favor any of the parties.
Confidentiality: What is said in mediation is private.
Phases of Mediation
- Establish rules of encounter (climate of trust, respect, listening to the other, honesty).
- Listen to each of the versions.
- Identify the common interests of both parties.
- Create options from the conflict, alternative solutions, promote empathy and cooperation.
- Reach agreements and compromises where both parties gain.
