In the Caring Hearts Elementary School that functions in the Bethel Orphanage, they attend to a group of 38 children that are studying first through sixth grade of elementary school, inside the installations of the orphanage.
So that the children cared for in Bethel didn´t have to leave the institution to study, they established this elementary school inside, said Teacher Samuel Rodriquez, the principal´s assistant.
He told us the director is Professor Eliazar Rodriquez and they have four licensed teachers, an English teacher, computer teacher and a PE teacher to teach the students.
In the school, most of the students live in the orphanage, but there are also boys from the Oasis Boy´s Home.
The attention that is offered to the students is very special, in that the groups are reduced, which allows an almost personalized attention, which contribute to a complete and quality education, the teacher told us.
The school is recognized legally by the education authorities, and the teachers are supported by Caring Hearts of the United States, who also supports the orphanage.
The children that are cared for in Bethel come from vulnerable families, in the orphanage they receive what they need so they grow up in a harmonious and tranquil environment, their education based on values.
He also mentioned that during February and March they had a reading contest with prizes going to the best readers, as a way to recognize their effort and dedication to this type of academic activity.
