scholarships4excellence

For the St. Peter’s Scholarship Committee it is a great pleasure to announce that finally Raquel Sánchez Herrera (Pre-U 0), Jerico Adgan (Pre-U 1) and Faith Asilo (Pre-U 1) are the students awarded with the 3rd edition of Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. After one week of class, Raquel, Jerico and Faith feel at home. They really think that these scholarships “are an opportunity. Daring to face the challenge is just the beginning”.

Raquel is from Badalona, and studied at Institut Ventura Gassol until  the last school year. One of her teachers told her about our Scholarships and she had no doubt. Jerico and Faith were studying together in Poble Sec and they saw the announcement of the grants on our website. They have it clear: some day they want to change the world for the better. So, let’s start! Welcome to St. Peter’s School!

This school year the grant honors our former pupil, Andrés Sexto. 

Becas Maria Rosa Culell: “El primer paso para un futuro lleno de posibilidades”

2017 scholarships advert2

Marcel Morillas, Loreto Padrós, Laia Tutusaus y Arnau Vilà siguen, todavía hoy, cursando Bachillerato gracias a las dos ediciones anteriores de las Becas Maria Rosa Culell. Estas becas permiten cursar los años de bachillerato en el colegio internacional St. Peter’s School. El colegio acaba de convocar la 3ª edición.

 Para ellos, los primeros seleccionados, las becas han sido más que una oportunidad, un reto que ha valido la pena afrontar. Dicen los cuatro que valoran, en especial, cómo han sido acogidos en St. Peter’s, por parte, tanto de los profesores como de los alumnos. Destacan la diversidad del centro, su tolerancia, su buen ambiente y la calidad en la educación. Una educación, según ellos, que incluye tanto el desarrollo personal como proyectos globales e internacionales que convierten St. Peter’s en un centro de referencia.

Esta entrevista, en la que nos contaron de primera mano su experiencia como candidatos seleccionados para las dos primeras ediciones de las Becas Maria Rosa Culell, ha sido publicado en el periódico La Vanguardia en este enlace.

¿Cómo valoráis que un colegio como St. Peter’s reconozca el talento, no solo académico, de jóvenes como vosotros?

Laia T.: Valoro muy positivamente la acogida y la atención recibida, que me ha ayudado a descubrir realmente mi potencial y mi vocación. Tanto los alumnos como los profesores favorecen un ambiente cercano y enriquecedor en todos los sentidos.

Loreto P.: Poder participar en proyectos como el Placement, con la capacidad de participar realmente en la rutina de un bufete de abogados, como fue mi caso, me ha permitido descubrir qué quiero hacer, y por eso, valoro inmensamente mi estancia en St. Peter’s.

¿Qué os ha aportado y qué habéis aportado vosotros al cursar el bachillerato en St. Peter’s?

Arnau V.: Ante todo, diversidad y crecimiento por parte de ambas partes. Todos hemos tenido la posibilidad de ver más allá. Al final, en este colegio lo que importa es la persona. Las becas me han ayudado (a mi y a mis compañeros, creo) a romper prejuicios de todo tipo.

Loreto P.: Cursar el bachillerato en un colegio internacional como St. Peter’s marca diferencia. No solo por el aprendizaje de inglés, sino también por el crecimiento personal que posibilitan los proyectos en los que participamos, por la atención recibida y por la excelencia. He crecido como persona y puedo decir que hoy sé qué camino tomar cuando llegue a la universidad.

¿Por qué presentarse a la convocatoria de las becas Maria Rosa Culell?

Laia T.: Porque son un reto, porque abren la puerta a un mundo de posibilidades que de otra forma, quizá no tendríamos, porque ayudan a desarrollarse como persona y a trazar el camino que tú decidas. Porque son excelentes.

 

Marcel M.: Ayudan a ampliar horizontes, a demostrarte que hay retos que valen la pena. Y este solo es el primero. Ahora sabemos que podemos afrontar muchos otros. Es el primer paso para un futuro lleno de oportunidades.

Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships For Excellence. 2017-18 In honour of Andrés Sexto

andres_sexto_stpeters

This year our Scholarships for Excellence bears the name of our former Pupil Andrés Sexto. Here we can see Andrés when he was a student at St. Peter’s and a recent picture taken this weekend.

Once again this year, we are pleased to announce the availability of the Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. These grants are merit-based and aim to support those students who have excellent academic and non-academic achievements. They intend to avoid limited resources being an obstacle to completing the three school years of Pre-U at St. Peter’s School (4th ESO and Bachillerato). There is only one difference in this year’s edition: we have included Pre-U Foundation and thus extended the scholarship to a maximum of three years, depending on the student’s commitment and progress.

Every school year the grant bears the name of a former pupil who stood out, not only for their academic merits but also for other qualities. Andrés Sexto is the former pupil to be honoured by the St. Peter’s Scholarship for Excellence 2017-18.

Andrés graduated at St. Peter’s School on 1993. As the previous honoured former pupils (Tatiana Sisquella and Sean Hartnoll), he always strived to fulfil the projects he believe in, struggled for them and carried them out with enthusiasm. This was the reason why, having finished his studies at the school, he studied Law at ESADE. Later he moved to Madrid where he finally passed the Entrance Exams to the solicitor profession in 2002. He has served as a solicitor in Galicia and Barcelona since then.

St. Peter’s Scholarships for Excellence would like to pay homage to those students who, like Andrés, are an example of both Excellence and Perseverance. Our first grant recipients agree that these scholarships “are a great opportunity opportunity. Daring to face the challenge is just the beginning”

The students who are already studying at the school find these grants the opportunity to enrich their learning experience. Their new peers help them grow academically and personally.

Scholarships for Excellence 2015-16. Announcement of awards

For the St. Peter’s Scholarship Committee it is a great pleasure to announce that finally three students have been awarded with the Tatiana Sisquella Scholarships for Excellence. These three students will be starting Pre-U 1 in September together with their new classmates. Loreto Padròs, Laia Tutusaus and Arnau Villàs are really looking forward to starting at St. Peter’s. The initial idea was to award  a scholarship to two students, but finally the Selection Committee has decided to give an additional scholarship based on the merits of the candidates.

The first edition of the Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence were proudly launched coinciding with St. Peter’s School 50th Anniversary. These grants aim to support those students who have not only an excellent academic performance record but also the attitude and the will to build their own destiny.

Every school year the scholarship will be dedicated to a former pupil. Tatiana Sisquella is the first former pupil to be thus honoured. St. Peter’s Scholarships for Excellence 2015-16 bear her name.
