Fuegian students are trained in tourism

Students from Tierra del Fuego were winners of the call “Tourism, Heritage and School”. We tell you what it was about.


The Ministry of Education and the Fueguino Tourism Institute distinguished 6th grade students from Rio Grande. It was within the framework of a competition that promotes the valuation of natural and cultural heritage as a pillar of  tourism .

Prior to the competition, the agencies held workshops for children in the last year of primary school. Students from schools in Rio Grande, Tolhuin and  Ushuaia participated. The proposal of the call was the realization of a school production on some provincial heritage of value to the community.

 Institution Concur -s before   Project presenting 
School No. 34 Natural and Cultural Reserve Playa Larga”
School No. 35 “Monuments of the Fallen in Malvinas”
School No. 14 “Train of the End of the World” (6th grade shift afternoon)
School No. 14 “Urban Nature Reserve Laguna de los Patos” (6th grade shift morning)
School No. 30 “La lana fueguina”
School No. 46 Chakra XI project “QR code”

The winning work was that of School No. 14, on “ Laguna de los Patos Urban Nature Reserve ”. As a prize for their production, the group of students and teachers will make a recreational trip in the city of Ushuaia. On the other hand, groups that submitted other projects will also receive recognition. This will consist of the possibility of accessing a sightseeing tour in your city.

The president of the Institute, Luis Castelli, explained that “for the third consecutive year these awareness talks are given to 640 students in 6th grade. In them, we seek to value our provincial heritage. That is, the tourist attractions and each of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in our country.”

 School Tourism Project 

This was implemented by Infuetur, to give continuity to the national educational proposal 'Tourism, Heritage and School', developed by the Ministry of Tourism.

In the province of Tierra del Fuego, it is executed by the area of Quality and Training and referents of the Rio Grande delegation of the Institute. The provincial education portfolio also collaborates.

In this project, students of the last years of primary schools are trained in a tourism culture. Based on the principles of heritage and tourism, contributing to the construction of a citizenship that knows, values and defends the treasures of each community.
