Head teachers, heads of studies and teachers from many of the schools where the course will be taught this year, as well as volunteers and supporters of the programme, all attended the opening ceremony of the Community Law School’s 17th edition.

Romana Sadurska, the Professor Uría Foundation’s Executive Vice Chair, kicked off the event and thanked all those present for attending and applauded the tireless efforts of the course’s teachers.

Carlos López-Quiroga, a member of the Foundation’s board of trustees and director of the Community Law School in Madrid, then outlined the main news regarding this year’s course.

Anna Forés, the event’s main speaker and a doctorate in the philosophy and sciences of education and pedagogy graduate from the Universitat de Barcelona gave a speech titled “The neuroeducational fundamentals of working in the classroom”.

After the speech, special thanks was given to Marisa Villalba, who has retired after a long career as a guidance counselor at the San Isidro secondary school.

As is now tradition, the event ended with a glass of Spanish wine and some time for us all to chat about our experiences. 

Many thanks to everyone who joined us for the event!
