CALPE Council received an award at the third Concurso de Buenas Practicas Municipales(Good Municipal Practices Competition) recently for its programme designed to combat bullying and truancy in local schools.

The Programa Especializado de Atencion Educativa (Specialised Programme of Educational Attention) was born by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport (MECD) together with the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces.

The programme celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, having helped more than 1,300 young people in Calpe.

Councillor Ana Perles collected the award at the ceremony held in the Ministry of Culture’s auditorium.

The ceremony was led by MECD Deputy Assistant Director General Santiago Pinel Vallejo, who, as a secondary school teacher himself, said he knew all too well the problems caused by bullying and truancy and congratulated Calpe Council for its efforts.
