It was the only school of nuns in Formosa that had not yet implemented co-education and, from 2020, will receive the first children.
For the first time in its 86-year-old history, the traditional Colegio Santa Isabel de Formosa will have mixed education. You will begin to enroll for next year in the 3-year preschool rooms. This decision of the institution was communicated by a note to the parents of the students. At the time of enrolment in this new modality, the siblings of students and children of teachers will be given priority.
In order to concretize and carry out this type of mixed education, necessary building modifications have already been made. In the first stage, approximately 15 children are expected to be enrolled per shift. The Colegio Santa Isabel de Formosa has morning and afternoon shifts.
Until this year, San Isabel de Formosa was the only so-called “ nuns college” that did not have a mixed education in the province. The measure is revolutionary, but it will take time: inclusion will be gradual from year to year.
The then mayor Castañeda donated a plot to them. In the same place where they are today, without imagining that 87 years later they would have a co-education college. They founded the Institute and, since they could not speak the local language, they began teaching practical tasks; they taught drawing and work. At first they had only preschool, but, with the collaboration in those days of parents and today too, the institution has grown noticeably.
The name of St. Elizabeth, who next year will have a mixed education, was chosen by the sisters. Queen Elizabeth of Hungary converted to the Franciscan order, and the missionaries took this woman as their reference point. Another important name for the school is that of St. Theresa of the Child Jesus , patron saint of the missionaries. Both statues are located in the courtyard.
