SUR in English: ‘Education & Learning’ Special Edition 2021

For the last few years, Novaschool Sunland International has participated in the SUR in English educational competition.

All the international Schools in southern Spain and Gibraltar are invited to join the annual Education and Learning supplement, which was published today, Friday 12 March 2021.

The purpose of this publication is to showcase our students’ talent in both our primary and secondary schools.

This year is even more special because the Covid-19 safety measures added more challenges for our teachers, but also for our pupils and their families: first of all by having to provide education remotely and then by having to be back in the classroom under additional health and safety rules.

A special recognition has been given to the best contributions, divided into three categories:

  • An original piece of artwork
  • A short story on the theme of safety
  • A poem containing the words ‘switch’ and ‘satisfaction’

The supplement is divided into two sections: the first one is dedicated to children’s work and the second to pictures and information showing the variety of activities that are carried out in the schools around the region.

Diario SUR debate ’21st Century Schools’

Last Tuesday, 2nd of March, our principal Rachel Evans participated in an online meeting organised by Diario SUR entitled: ‘21st Century Schools: teaching tomorrow’s leaders’. The debate was led by the journalist Carmen Alcaraz, and the focus was to discuss the current challenges in Education in the province of Málaga.

The meeting was attended by Miss Evans, as representative of our Novaschool Educational Group, with María José Salom, the director of El Pinar school, and Pancho Campo, partner and director of development at the American College in Spain.

The starting point was how teachers and school leaders faced last year’s events and the real challenges for education in Spain and around the world. Thanks to the efforts of the educational community, these schools were able to establish a safe environment demonstrating their flexibility and ability to quickly adapt to new situations.

At Novaschool, technology has always been a fundamental pillar, so our Educational Group already had all the tools to manage online classes. As Miss Evans explained throughout the event, all the centres used Novaschool’s own platform, myAgora+, which enabled them to maintain normal educational activities.

The experts also agreed that the collaboration of families and the teachers and students’ ability to adapt played an essential role in establishing a radical change to our schools’ day-to-day life.

The three schools, despite their differences, are a reference in innovation and educational quality within the province of Málaga. All are committed to providing learning based on the implementation of new educational methodologies, technological innovation, and human values – fulfilling their commitment to students and their families.
