La Councilor for Education, Montse Villaverde, has visited, on the first day of school, the center of L'Arenal. In Xàbia, close to 2.000, children and primary school students have started the course in the different areas of the town: Vicente Tena, Graüll, Trenc d'Alba, Port de Xàbia, María Inmaculada and Arenal. In addition, 1142 students have done it in the two secondary schools: Toni Llidó and IES nº1 and the ESO line of the Immaculate Mary.
The mayor has chosen the Arenal on this first day because it is the school that represents what Xàbia is, «A very diverse population that many nationalities live together, and this school is a clear example of coexistence, respect and integration».
Villaverde has indicated that it is a center that works well with everyday difficulties. Regarding the work done during the summer, the councilor has highlighted the cleaning, painting in the centers and road painting around the school areas. In addition, a new specific classroom has been enabled, in the Graüll, for students with special educational difficulties. A claim that was made last year and had the support of the AMPA of the Trenc d'Alba.
All schools have started eagerly and with the view that, in this course, the works of the Pla Edificant can be seen with the projects almost awarded.
At the moment, the mayor has indicated that the drafting of the works of this Plan are being awarded «And if nothing happens, in two weeks they will be awarded». Regarding the Graüll, the councilor has stated that due to its complexity they are making modifications, for us the Graüll is a priority and every time we are required the urban planning service has been fully dedicated.
For his part, the director of the l'Arenal school, Dani Martínez, has valued «Positively» The renovations of the center. «It is the center with more students of Xàbia, although the number of students dance to be a center with a high number of foreign students», says Martinez.
