"Talks for families and teachers" returns with new lectures from October to May

The Formentera Office of Social Welfare is pleased to announce plans for nine new lectures as part of the 'Talks for families and teachers' (Xerrades per a famílies i docents) which turns four this year. Talks run from October to May and are supported by the Teachers' Resource Centre (Centre de Professorat) and local parents' associations.

Led by José Ruiz Sánchez, a doctor of philosophy, speaker and the author of such books as "El arte de pensar", the first of the talks will offer tips to helping children become critical thinkers. The talk will be held on 21 October at 5.00pm in the Consell de Formentera Sala de Plens, located next to the Day Centre.

Councillor Ramírez highlighted his pleasure at being able to deliver an entirely face-to-face programme, insisting that the resulting "space for learning and exchanging ideas and experiences" was "ideal for preventing the development of problematic behaviour and providing support to families and teachers on the island in their respective tasks".
