MUNICIPAL employees have been at work on local schools, removing walls and extending classrooms.

Libraries and laboratories have also been converted into more classrooms while washrooms have been enlarged, announced the town hall’s Education councillor Montse Villaverde.

With schools due to reopen on Monday, September 7, almost exactly six months after they closed shortly before the State of Alarm was announced, the authorities are determined that pupils should be kept as safe as possible from the coronavirus. 


School lunches will be served in classrooms, break times – where pupils will remain in their own bubbles – are to be staggered.

The town hall is also supplying every school with 50 litres of disinfectants each week, Villaverde said.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
