The programme will commence with our Gala Dinner for Heads, Owners and Guests, an ideal introduction to our event and an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful setting of our Conference Hotel. The following day, which is dedicated to heads and owners of schools, will include the opening ceremony and tour of the Education Village followed by presentations from key speakers from both the Department for Education and the Spanish Ministry of Education. Thereafter, there will be an interesting programme of professional development for senior leaders and teachers, ensuring that we are well informed and kept up-to-date with the latest developments, reforms and trends in education. At the same time, authorised representatives of member schools will attend the Annual General Meeting.

The annual conference provides ample opportunity for networking and social events this year will include our gala dinner, a tour of Malaga, buffet lunches and coffee breaks in the exhibition area, cocktails and the presentation of awards ceremony.

Aloha College Supporting Cáritas and Inspiring Solidarity PDF Print

Marbella (Málaga), 11 February 2015-

In December the pupils of Aloha College collected non-perishable food items and used clothing to take to Cáritas in La Cala de Mijas to be distributed to people in need within our local community. Just prior to Christmas, they delivered 4 large boxes of food and several bags of clothing.

This inspired one pupil even further – Shaneze Sibille from Year 5 in the Primary School was so moved after delivering the goods, she decided to prolong the appeal. With her father’s support, she contacted several companies asking for further donations and delivered extra boxes of food to this charity. She is now expecting some further donations of food from different companies. She has even asked her friends to bring for her forthcoming birthday party food for Cáritas instead of a big present - Cáritas has proudly named her their “Junior Ambassador”.

This is not the only case of charity inspiration at Aloha College. Edward Martínez in Year 7 and Nicholas Martínez in Year 13 have been junior ambassadors for the last three years. They both regularly work at the Caritas center, and during Xmas holidays, they help to organise and distribute toys to the families. Nicholas is now about to start a course that will make him a fully-trained volunteer and take up a post of responsibility in the organisation when he is 18.
