Key Aspects Tennis + Education
Once secured the two gears that move our project, we can influence the importance of our actions, our thoughts, our tasks, our environment. To be responsible or have responsibilities we need to be decent and respectful. As our students grow, mature and develop, they acquire the necessary responsibility that allows them to apply their learning in all areas of their lives.
Fellowship and Effort
Immersed in the culture of effort and discipline, we understand the educational process as a challenge, a goal, a goal divided into smaller goals that, through hard work , perseverance, self-improvement, discipline and thoroughness, the students at Agora Portals will achieve. But as the end does not justify the means, this path should be based on kindness, respect, trust, generosity, gratitude and solidarity. Cooperative work is an essential tool in our ideology.
Within our project we must understand differences, integrity, selflessness, willingness to help others… Since we believe that being humble with others allows us to grow internally. Educating without humility, the big heads will win one day. Instead, humility will make them be respected all their life.
