Information about the town and/or neighborhood
This assignment is spot between four different locations in different towns: Fuenteheridos, Castaño del Robledo, La Nava and Valdelarco. These towns are located in and near the national park of Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche. These little towns are just magic: the streets, the surroundings, the customs and traditions… In the following links, you can find interesting information about them:
The schools in each town are small, with students from 3 to 14 years
old, they are nice, kind and polite. The atmosphere and the working
environment is tranquil and calm.
Aracena (the main town in this region and where auxiliares with this assignment often choose to live) is beautiful. Ringed by mountains, and overlooked by a historic castle/fort, the nature around it is incredible. Even though it is a small town, there is a lot to do: sports, shopping, concerts, hiking, theatre, art classes, etc. The cost of living is quite cheap so you can enjoy all those activities.
It is located one hour from Seville, Huelva city, the Portuguese border and the beach. In three hours, you can reach Córdoba or Granada. There are buses and car-sharing options to get around the region easily and quickly.
Besides, there are other language assistants from the USA and other
countries in other schools in the area and in Huelva city that often
plan activities and nights out.

Tras la publicación de la Orden de 16 de marzo de 2021, por la que se autorizan nuevos centros bilingües, podemos anunciar que nuestro cole será un centro bilingüe a partir del próximo curso escolar.
El proceso de implementación será progresivo, de esta manera, el próximo curso 2021/22, comenzaremos con la enseñanza bilingüe en toda la etapa de la Educación Infantil y primer curso de Educación Primaria, realizándose en años posteriores un proceso de implementación natural (en el curso 2022/2023 el alumnado que cursó 1º de E.P. seguirá la enseñanza bilingüe en 2º E.P. y el alumnado de nueva incorporación de 3 años cursará la enseñanza bilingüe, y así sucesivamente).
Comenzamos esta nueva andadura con mucha ilusión.
