In the last few years, the Pastoral in all IBVM Irlandesas Schools in Spain has greatly changed. We are not so interested in activities and we are more focused on what really matters, that is, we want to arise the Spiritual Intelligence of our pupils in all our schools.
The Spiritual Intelligence, according to Carmen Pellicer, is the competence supported by five different aspects that we will develop throughout our educational work. Each of these aspects, like the rest of the basic competences which form the base of the curriculum, lies between the capacities and the experiential command people and human groups develop throughout their life. Different age groups that may also experience different learning situations can be stimulated in a variety of ways, but these five aspects are common to the development of the spiritual dimension and they are good for paving the way for what is exactly included in Pastoral.
