School start dates for 2010/2011 year

Work is being carried out at all municipal infant and primary schools in preparation for the beginning of the 2010/2011 school year, which for the younger ones, begins on Friday September 10. ESO and Bachillerato classes start on the 15th. If your school-age child is new to their school, it is essential to register (matricular) him or her before classes start. All you have to do is take your certificado de empadronamiento (certificate of registration, available on the second floor of the Ayuntamiento, Town Hall, Calle Sevilla in Jimena, or the local municipal offices in San Pablo or San Martín del Tesorillo), plus your residence ceretificate or passport (and the kids') to the school's secretaría. They're very helpful, and they're quite used to foreigners turning up looking lost...
