Four groups of students from Colegio Internacional Montessori, participated in teamwork workshops organized by the Excellence Center of Universidad Francisco Marroquín.
One of the students sang opera before throwing herself in the air to ring the bell in an exercise of high ropes; also during one of the workshops, the birthday of a student was celebrated.
The workshop, where a total of 63 students participated, was coordinated by Pili Biba and the facilitators were Carla de Hess, director of the Center, and Karina Bonilla, in addition to Biba.
