The centre worked with Dialogic Literary Gatherings (DLGs), Interactive Groups (IGs), Dialogic Model of Conflict Prevention and Resolution and Dialogic Training of Teachers on a weekly basis. The first were piloted in literature, science, art, films and maths. There were approximately 420 students, 25 teachers and 50 families and volunteers involved in the activities.

Impact and successes

Teachers, families and students attributed improvements in school coexistence and academic performance to the Successful Educational Actions (SEAs), mainly because through these practices, safe spaces were created where the community supports each other.

Although the school has seen a decrease in conflicts since the start of the SEAs, students said that it was important to reinforce the principles of respect and solidarity at the beginning of each year to avoid conflicts.
