PUPILS at the San Jose Obrero school in Orihuela have embarked on a new project.

The school’s director Fr Vicente Martinez explained that they are preparing and modifying a Kawasaki motorcycle, ready for the Superbike championships.

Orihuela’s Sports councillor Victor Bernabey drew attention to the San Jose Obrero school’s “great work” in involving teachers and pupils in the project to prepare the bike for former pupil Joaquin Garcia.


“This is an exciting undertaking and we didn’t think twice about taking part,” Valverde said.

“This is a social and profession integration project that involves everybody at the school and is going to take the name of Orihuela all over Spain.”

Orihuela’s Tourism councillor Mariola Rocamora underlined the school’s efforts and the great work it was carrying out in ensuring that the pupils could identify with a project and see for themselves that all work has its rewards.

Like Valverde, Rocamora expressed satisfaction that the name of Orihuela would be seen throughout Spain.

“There could be better way of taking the Orihuela Historia del Mediterraneo brand to every national Superbike race,” she declared.
