THIS Monday, over 2,800 students between primary and secondary returned to schools across Javea.
The Col·legi Port de Xabia was so “saturated”, said Vice Principal Isabel Moreno, that the year six students had to be split in to two classes.
The same happened at the Col·legi Trenc d’Alba with year five students and at Col·legi L’Arenal with year four students.
Moreno continued to explain that, since the economic recovery, there has been a huge increase in the number of foreign students arriving in Javea, especially at the Col·legi Port de Xabia where she says “students come from all over the world.”
Mayor Jose Chulvi and Councillors of Education Kika Mata and Montse Villaverde visited the Col·legi Port de Xabia as students returned to check out the maintenance work carried out by AMPA in the summer holidays.
They talked with year five students and year two students.
The year five students had more of an understanding as to who the mayor was, with one student asking him if he knew he wanted to be a mayor when he was at school.
The year two students, on the other hand, had less of an understanding, with one student asking if the mayor was the ‘president of Spain’.
