December 19 was a very special day for Robinson School with the Inauguration of the Hawk Donors Wall. Robinson school was founded on the premises of helping and giving back, and this donors’ wall pays tribute to that. Thank you to the class of 2019 members, and the parents who have led their kids by example, by volunteering at the school, by donating to various projects and by donating their time to servicing others. Thanks to that, your children have been able to give back to the school so early on.
A very warm thank you to the families who were instrumental in making this happen: among them the Paoli family – particularly the renowned architect, sculptor and beloved Robinson parent, Mr. Nestor Paoli, who donated this magnificent design. Nestor, we thank you for all the hours spent creating, revising, installing and devoted to this sculptural work. The love you put on this project permeates through the design and will be part of the school’s history for generations to come
We would also like to also thank-
The Abilleira family
The Pauli family
The Canellas family
The Ginorio family
The Magrina family
That said, we would like to share artist Nestor Paoli’s words:
“It is with great honor that today I present this sculptural work, which not only represents my effort but also the idea and vision of a working group composed by the Class of 2019 and the Robinson School Administration.
The selected concept is based on the idea of a mosaic. A mosaic represents what the Robinson Family is: A community of different cultures, races, languages, customs, concerns and abilities. It represents a history that has been built and completed for more than a century.
As for the selection of the materials, we chose corten steel for the perimeter, a material due to its great hardness represents the strength and solidity that have guided this institution from the beginning. The second material, the stainless steel with more polish and shine represents the transformation of educational excellence and great academic achievements that have long characterized Robinson. Last, but not least, the figure of the hawk formed by empty space represents the strong spiritual and moral values which are engraved in each life that has been formed in this great institution.
All of us have formed and will continue to build and carry in our hearts that legacy of excellence, brotherhood and love that characterizes the Robinson Hawk Spirit.
I give thanks to God and to all of you for this opportunity.”
