Within the social actions that it is undertaking, the Consistory of Maracena launches a pioneering initiative educational matters. It consists of a bank of textbooks that students need, free of cost, supporting families who are most in dire times.
Maracena City Council will invest EUR60,000 in a large book bank that can supply more than 200 students who support the Baccalaureate program at the IES Manuel de Falla. The bank will include the books for each subject, core, and elective. These can be taken in different modes. Noel Lopez, a local councilor, stated that this initiative "adds to the ones already done by the City Council to alleviate negative effects derived form the COVID-19 epidemic."
The Casa de la Cultura will accept applications for this program during July. They will be open from the morning of July 10:00-12:00. The material will be delivered to the student via a Casa de la Cultura prior appointment. A deposit of EUR90 must also be made at the Casa de la Cultura. This deposit will be returned after the material is fully lent.
Fran Yeste, Councilor for Education and Culture said that the initiative was a collaboration between the center's management and the teaching team. He also noted that the AMPA has helped students and families in the city.
