Esteban Bullrich with students in Buenos Aires
Founded in March, 2015, the Elementary School is the first bilingual public school of this type in Argentina, where students speak their native languages: Spanish and Guarani, Mandarin and Cantonese. Its foundation was the result of inter-governmental collaboration between the City of Buenos Aires and the Beijing City authorities – a good example of Goal #17, Partnerships for the Goals!
The class was lucky to get a special World’s Largest Lesson to end their week, with a Lesson from the Minister of Education of Buenos Aires himself, Esteban Bullrich, and Sub Secretary Max Gulmanelli.
Minister Bullrich told us why he is giving his support:
“If in every school we talk with the students about The World’s Largest lesson, I am sure that the children and young people of today will be the generation that will actually accomplish the 3 Goals that will change the world.”
See what two of the students learnt from the Minister’s lesson when he asks them about the Global Goals in a special film he made for us – here.
When asked what we can do to end global inequality, Xiaona told Minister Bullrich, “Share. If we can share, we have more friends to take care of the planet. And we have more fun too.” Well said, Xiaona!
