CEIP LA JURADA

SAN ISIDRO - GRANADILLA DE ABONA

TENERIFE - CANARY ISLANDS - SPAIN

 

          

 

Primary and pre-primary school La Jurada is located south of Tenerife, a Spanish island. The college is newly created  and inaugurated in 2009. It has two levels of education: pre-primary and primary education with over 300 students. It is part of the "Medusa" project which gives schools new technologies. Each classroom has an interactive whiteboard and a computer. Aside of a computer lab, students 10 to 12 years have a notebook for each.

 

 

The Canary Islands is a Spanish archipelago located just off the northwest coast of mainland Africa, 100 km west of the border between Morocco and the Western Sahara.

 

 

Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the seven Canary Islands 908,555 inhabitants, 43% of the total population of the Canary Islands.  About five million tourists visit Tenerife each year, the most of any Canary Islands. Tenerife hosts one of the world's largest carnivals and the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is attempting to become a World Heritage Site. The tourism is the economic centre of the archipelago.

Tenerife also has the highest elevation of Spain, a World Heritage Site that is the third largest volcano in the world from its base, El Teide (3718 m.).

San Isidro is the largest population center in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona with a total of 21,061 inhabitants. Some years ago consisted of a single road called Santa Cruz Avenue, around which were built the first houses in the neighborhood. Today, this avenue is the main shopping area of the town.

San Isidro is one of the most dynamic towns in the municipality of Granadilla de Abona.

The development of this core population is largely the result of the settlement, in the seventies, an outstanding volume of immigrants from the island of La Gomera, attracted by the expansion of cash crops and tourism. In its surroundings have developed greenhouse crops that occupy a considerable area and whose products are exported to European markets. Its inhabitants work in this activity and in the tourism.

It has a population growth and economic boom due to its strategic location near the southern motorway, 3 minutes from Tenerife South Airport, 5 kilometers from Medano Beach, and close to the Granadilla Industrial area, site build the future industrial port of Tenerife.

OUR TOWN - SPIŠSKE  VLACHY


The town in the heart of Spiš – Spiššké Vlachy, formerly called Olazi, Wahi, Villa, Latina – with a rich history and interesting sights within its closeness, is located in the southeastern part of the Hornád Basin some 380 meters above sea level.It has a rich history and is surrounded by many places of interest.

The Urgian ruler Belo IV. granted the town considerable rights and privileges in 1243.

The town experienced its golden age between the 16th and 18th century.
In 1863, the first volunteer fire-fighting force in Slovakia was established here.
The town`s main historical monuments are:
The Church of St. John the Baptist, a Marian Baroque pillar from 1727, an Evangelic Roman church from 1787, and a Gothic building of a former Town Hall from the 18th century.
A number of historically significant people were born in the area, e.g. the bishop František Tondra.
The area is surrounded by beautiful countryside and a recreational complex Zahura with three natural ponds.

 

  From the history of Spišské Vlachy

 

Town Spišské Vlachy came into existence at the beginning of 12th Century, but some evidence of its  settlement  traces back to the time of 5. 000 years BC. In 1243 the  King Bela IVth granted Spišské Vlachy by the town privileges. This was the first time when the written document about our town has appeared and retained. In 1412 the town was given as a guarantee to Poland for 360 years. The biggest tide of the movement Spišské Vlachy made in the period of 16th to 18th Century. In 1923 our town was exempt of the town privileges  which have been returned in 1992.

Nowadays with about 3.500 inhabitants we belong to one of the smallest towns in Slovakia. But we have many historical buildings and sights, f.e. Romanesque, after reconstruction developed Ghotic style Church of St. John Baptist with barogue interior. There are a lot of interesting places to see and to spend a quality leisure time near our town : Spiš Castle, Dreveník, Levoča, Spišské Podhradie,   High Tatras, Plejsy Krompachy - ski center ...
