Colegio Evangélico Alfredo Furniss

This is a day school in the provincial capital city. It grew out of a holiday club held in 1982 consisting of 8 children and an enthusiastic team of helpers.  Other children subsequently joined in the fun, games and Bible story lessons and three months later a kindergarten called ‘Mi Pesebre’ (My Crib) opened its doors for the first time.  The school was named after Alfred Furniss, aSheffieldman, in honour of his pioneering missionary work in that province.  The school motto is, ‘Educando para el Tiempo y la Eternidad’ which translates as ‘Educating for Time and Eternity’. In addition to teaching the national curriculum, the school promotes peace, love and the spread of evangelical principles in relation to morality, family unity and human dignity.

As more and more children were drawn to the school, primary and subsequently secondary levels were established over the period 1985 to 1992. .  The number of pupils has continued to increase year by year and today there are just under1000 students in total.

As a result of this growing demand for placements the school premises became inadequate and too small and has required considerable capital outlay over the last few years to enlarge and improve the building.  The Trust has provided financial grants for some of the building improvements.
