Family Pastoral

“Los hijos son la alegría de la familia y de la sociedad. Los hijos son un don (…) Ser hijo e hija, según el designio de Dios, significa llevar en sí la memoria y la esperanza de un amor que se ha realizado precisamente dando la vida a otro ser humano, original y nuevo. Y para los padres cada hijo es él mismo, es diferente, es diverso’’. (Papa Francisco).

Parents are primarily responsible for their children’s education and at Highlands School they will find their closest collaborator.

Highlands School also offers the means for the human and spiritual formation of families, helping them to live the values that are forged in an irreplaceable way at home.

For more than 20 years, parents have placed their trust in us, relying on our experience to accompany them through the training programme with the help of experts.

We also offer a complete programme of pastoral activities with the aim of providing some guidelines and keys in the important mission of educating children.

Parents’ school

CHILDREN: TRAINING OURSELVES TO EDUCATE OUR CHILDREN     

Nobody teaches you how to do the most important thing in life, the arrival of a child. For this reason, at our school we accompany and offer our youngest parents various workshops to educate their children at each stage of early childhood.

1ST-3RD PRIMARY: HAPPY CHILDREN

Keys to accompany children during these early years and give them the tools to socialise and grow in security and autonomy.

4TH-6TH PRIMARY: THE FAMILY, SCHOOL OF LOVE

It is at home that we learn to love. In the sessions and workshops for the last years of primary school we accompany families so that they can guide their children in learning true love.

SECONDARY: ADOLESCENCE IN A POSITIVE WAY

Adolescence is a time of change and growth. We will learn to see this stage in a positive light in order to help them, from this perspective, to manage the challenges they face at this age.

BACCALAUREATE: TOWARDS MATURITY

We want each of our pupils to finish with the best all-round education, prepared for the challenges posed by our society. With high ideals and their feet on the ground, capable of being true positive leaders in the environments in which they develop.

Preparation for the sacraments

FIRST COMMUNION

In Primary 3 the children are preparing to receive their First Holy Communion. In this special year we offer family sessions, beginning with Sunday Mass and ending with catechesis for all, as well as the possibility of a trip to Lourdes for mothers and children. First Communion is a very important event for everyone, and we offer parents, as the first catechists and evangelisers in the home, the tools to prepare for it as a family.

CONFIRMATION

In the 4th year of Secondary students receive catechesis for Confirmation. We also give parents and godparents some sessions with keys to accompany their teenagers in their growth in faith.

Spiritual Activities

Parents also participate in the pastoral life of the Highlands School through prayer groups, Adoration, Eucharistic celebrations, pilgrimages, etc.
