The CEF N ° 12 of Chivilcoy, is an educational institution dependent on the General Directorate of Culture and Education to which about 1400 students usually attend, and offers about 64 proposals for sports education. It currently has a Cooperating Association that works selflessly and ad honoren, trying to improve the quality of life of students as well as thinking jointly with the school's governing body, in projects for building improvements for the benefit of all Families that attend daily. In 2018, and with much effort on the part of the institution, the construction of a multi-sport beach was completed in an outdoor space belonging to the CEF but wasted until that moment.
With the amount that the volunteers received as a prize, it was possible to acquire and install the necessary luminaires to illuminate the field with the main objective of generating new spaces for outdoor sports and thus promoting the physical activity of children, youth and neighbors in general they go there.
