AS schools restart, albeit online, Proteccion Civil volunteers are delivering homework to Torrox pupils who have no internet access.
“We are aware of people’s needs at present and are also concerned about our children after we discovered that not all of the municipality’s pupils have been able to do their schoolwork,” said Torrox mayor Oscar Medina.
“So with the help of Proteccion Civil – whose work during these last weeks has been outstanding – we have been taking this to them so that, as far as they’re able at present, they can keep to a study routine.”
Education councillor Maria de los Angeles Ruiz, explained that in some homes although there is an internet connection and a computer, very often these are needed by the children’s parents, teleworking from home.
“The very youngest pupils also need specific material like colouring and shape books or craft templates,” she said.
