Programme for families and teachers gets started with talk on keys to educating kids

poster-families3The Departments of Social Welfare and Education of the Consell de Formentera report that 10 October will mark the start of Xerrades per a famílies i docents (“Talks for families and teachers”), a series of two-hour lectures set to run through 7 May in the multipurpose room of the Centre de Dia. The social welfare office of the Consell puts on the initiative, with additional help from the education department, the local teachers’ resource centre (CEP) and the Formentera chapter of the Federation of Parents’ Associations (FAPA).

The opening talk, titled “Bencriats: Claus per educar els nostres fills i filles”, will be led by Belén Alvite, the head of the Eivissa Centre for Study and Prevention of Addictive Behaviour (Cepca).

A two-part objective drives the deep-dives: to help families and educational staff sharpen their strengths to stop problematic behaviour like bullying or drug- and alcohol-use before it starts, and to give support to the two groups in their roles as family members and educators.

Social welfare councillor Rafa Ramírez described the gatherings as “spaces of information and learning, where improved educational experiences and strategies to develop the whole child emerge thanks to experience sharing and group reflection”.

Each event in the nine-part series starts at 5.00pm in the Centre de Dia’s sala polivalent (multipurpose room) on 10 October. Daycare will be provided.

Course content
Space is available for 15, and admission is granted in the order applications are received. Individuals interested in enrolling should visit the social welfare department during normal office hours (àrea de Benestar Social; 9.00am to 2.00pm) and come with either a NIE (foreign-born resident's card) or passport.

Putting a stop to gender violence

taller-estudiants1The social welfare department of the Consell de Formentera invited year four students at the island's high school, IES Marc Ferrer, to take part in a morning gathering aimed at preventing gender violence. The exercise in improv theatre was led by the ‘Teatre de xoc’ theatre troupe, and was conceived as a more direct, light-hearted and theatre-based approach to reinforcing coeducational and prevention-oriented efforts already under way at the school.

Peace court relocates

jutjat-de-pau1The Consell de Formentera reports that the offices of the Justice of the Peace, or Jutjat de Pau, have been moved to the Department of Social Welfare (Venda des Brolls, 53, Sant Francesc). Regular hours are 9.00am to 1.30pm, though the court offers expanded hours as necessary.

The services historically available at the peace court will remain unchanged, like settlements, handling of notices, citations, requisitions and summons, not to mention delegating specific tasks to third parties, as in the cases of letters rogatory from other courts or tribunals in civil and penal cases. The office also serves as a Civil Registry.
