Marching time! This year the Makarios School was honored to participate in the annual Independence Day Parade in Monte Llano. The parade consisted of students and staff of twelve local schools. Participating in this tradition is a BIG deal for our school, and this is the first year we have been invited.
Many of the schools displayed their banners and national flags while others danced and marched with small bands. Our students and staff braved the long walk with smiles and waves for all those watching the festivities. We held the flags of the Dominican Republic and the banner for Colegio Makarios with pride while marching along with drums played by several of our teachers. We even had two of our boys dressed as Juan Pablo Duarte, who is considered one of the founding fathers of the Dominican Republic.
Overall, we all had a wonderful time being with our city on this special day. We are thankful for the invitation to participate and hope that this becomes an annual tradition for Colegio Makarios.
