School Dining Room

It's very important to provide our students with a healthy, varied and balanced diet. We have our own kitchen, preparing daily menus designed by expert nutritionists. We take special care of all students who have any type of food allergy or intolerance, adapting the menu to their specific needs.

While they are in the dining room, students are overseen by dining room supervisors who have the qualifications required to carry out their responsibilities, in addition to an appropriate personal profile.

With these services the school aims to:

  • Provide a healthy, varied and balanced diet.
  • Encourage fellowship, respect and good manners.
  • Improve eating habits.
  • Develop good personal and postural hygiene habits
  • Discover new flavours.

Parents are informed daily via the ESEMTIA platform about the dining room menu and how much their children have eaten.

School Clinic

This paediatric nursing space is staffed by different health professionals coordinated by Teresa Carrillo, nurse and department manager. Our school is convinced that having this on-site nursing space ensures a faster and more effective response in the event of an emergency. The aim is to provide extra peace of mind for parents and children.

The school clinic attends to daily emergencies and covers the needs of one-off, ongoing and special care, such as the control of food allergies in the dining room and even monitoring chronic diseases like diabetes.

Our school has an AED defibrillator and part of the team has received the relevant training to be able to use it in case of emergency. This makes New Castelar a Cardioprotected Space.

 

School Transport

New Castelar College provides personalized transport services supplied by the company Autocares Vidal. We currently cover three routes: La Manga, Cartagena and Torrevieja. Route extensions are considered according to demand.

The school transport service includes supervisors who are in charge of children's safety. Their main task is to accompany and take care of the students, making sure they arrive at their stops and at the school site without any incident occurring on the way.

Parents interested in this service will be provided with information on the routes, fares, schedules and code of conduct to be followed by children using School Transport.

Morning Classroom

Our center offers a morning class service (from 07:45h) for all those students who need it.

Guidance Department

Our school has a Psycho-pedagogical Guidance Office staffed by specialists in the field of Pedagogy, Psychology, Neuropsychology, and Hearing and Language. The Office's main mission is to collaborate, help and guide in the teaching task, contributing with all the members that make up the educational community towards students' overall education. Another primary purpose of the Office is to guide students in their education process, as well as inform and advise parents on how their child is getting on.

In summary, the Psychopedagogical Guidance Department is responsible for:

  • Informing, advising and guiding students, parents and teachers in a personal and strictly confidential way.
  • Facilitating students' integration into the school and their class group.
  • Detecting possible learning problems and helping students to overcome them.
  • Collaborating with management and tutors.

Immersion

As an international school, we welcome students of different nationalities, including American, English, Belgian, Chinese, Russian, Swedish and Swiss.

For this reason, we have a language immersion program in place to achieve an optimal level of Spanish and English in the shortest possible time, as both languages are equally used for teaching purposes at New Castelar College. This enables students to follow the teaching sessions in a standardized way together with other students on their course.

This program is also applied in particular to students coming from other Spanish schools where English language was studied as a subject on its own rather than as a vehicle language for studying other subjects and was not used by the student on a daily basis.

School Tutoring

During the Primary Stage, New Castelar College has school tutoring sessions in most of the subjects in the educational curriculum. These sessions are included in the services we offer at no additional cost and are taught from 12.50 pm to 1.50 pm. Students attend the tutoring sessions on the recommendation of their teacher or tutor and with the consent of the parents or legal guardians.

Extra-Curricular Activities

The extra-curricular activities we offer include: robotics, chess, tennis, football, judo, dancing, skating, instrumental ensemble, artistic techniques, storytelling, French, etc. The schedule is as follows:

  • Primary Education extra-curricular activities take place from 12.50 pm to 1.50 pm.
  • Early Childhood Education extra-curricular activities take place from 1.50 pm 2.50 pm.
  • Secondary Education extra-curricular activities take place from 4.00 pm to 4.50 pm.

Students who choose to not get involved in any of these extra-curricular services spend that time going to the library to do homework, read or play, under the supervision of the teaching team at all times.
