What is S3?
In Saint Gregory we have a department called: S3 (Student, Support, Service), which aims to provide support, guidance and permanent monitoring of all our students and therefore parents who require it. We have our Psychopedagogue, Cynthia Méndez; School Counselor, Carolina González Garita; and our Psychologist, Martha Vallina Ramírez; all of them with extensive experience in the educational field.
This Department is in constant communication with the entire Saint Gregory community, fostering an atmosphere of trust that allows students to approach and freely express their emotions, feelings, concerns and doubts about any topic.
Additionally, we have created a Support Network for healthy coexistence, based on the Anatole Pikas method, which focuses on the following objectives:
- Allow a deeper knowledge of the student’s reality within the classroom and their interaction with the community in general.
- Enable tools that generate better interpersonal relationships with their peers.
- Promote critical thinking and assertive communication that maximizes understanding of others, where respect for differences, tolerance and solidarity prevails.
- Use tools that promote a culture of peace, dialogue and harmony, which will be led by young people who will be selected in each classroom, to shape this support network.
The main purpose of the S3 Department is to create happy, adapted students who can acquire knowledge and develop emotional intelligence that allows them an adequate social ability to face the conflicts and difficulties that life has.
