The mission of Ward School in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is to educate children and young people so that, aware of their transcendence and dependence on God, they can contribute to the society in which they live, with ethical and Christian values. The Ward school is a longtime partner of Global Ministries since the school’s founding at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Ward School has launched a new campaign to construct a multi-use building for use by the school and community.
This new building will fill a growing need for a large and versatile space to host a variety of events of diverse natures such as sporting, musical, cultural, solidarity and academic events. This space will allow for simultaneous events and for events during bad weather. The handball court will allow for growth of the successful handball team. The new building also will allow the school to host community service activities as well as concerts by the Ward School Band and other local schools.
The proposed building will include 2,000 square meters of covered space, 500 fixed seats, room for 500 more folding chairs, a floating wood floor for multiple uses, and an environmentally sustainable roof.
