The best pattern languages to be used in this school were exercised. We start with what if… What if the students come to the school in the morning and they pray before going for class. The church bell starts ringing, birds are singing. Students, teacher walks along the promenade. The place should be in the heart of the school. The heart of the site connects each group with pedestrian walkway, a walkway of Rosario, holy necklace which catholic people believe. It is series node of activity, place of students sitting, talking, place of students watching people, place of students proposing poetry bellow trees of flamboyant. Place where students can smell fragrant of thousand flowers, daffodil, roses. Like japan famous for its cherry blossom and Australia famous for its jacaranda trees. Like what Oscar Newman said place can be safer when there is condition for people watching people.
