Escola Oficial d’Idiomes of Formentera to offer Catalan studies in 2021-2022

Local councillor of language policy, Raquel Guasch, has welcomed the news that from September, the Escola Oficial d’Idiomes (EOI, Official Language School) of Formentera, will introduce academic studies in Catalan. The announcement came today from the directorate general of planning, organisation and centres, a division of the Balearic ministry of education and vocational training. The local EOI will additionally extend Italian studies to include the B2.2 level.

A response to growing demand among EOI students, the change is the latest example of the centre’s ever-expanding instructional offering.

Councillor Guasch had petitioned the directorate general to implement the expansion. She reasoned, “It’s only fair that Formentera residents have the same educational opportunities as their neighbours in the archipelago”, she reasoned. Not only that, but “it opens up another route to local accreditation of Catalan learning and marks a step forward in the normalisation of our language”.

The exact course offering will be made public after the period of “pre-registration” (preinscripció), which begins 2 June. During pre-registration, aspiring Catalan language learners can choose between the basic A2 level and intermediate B1 and B2. The course offering will continue to expand as long as a minimum number of students enrol.

The Formentera EOI offers English from basic A1 to advanced C1.1 and Italian from basic A1 to intermediate B2.1, and currently has 320 students.

Registration at Formentera nurseries starts Monday

The Formentera Department of Education reports that Monday 15 March marks the start of open enrolment at Sa Miranda and Camí Vell nurseries. Interested families have until 31 March 2021 to register on the Balearic education office’s dedicated platform.

Escoleta Sa Miranda is open to children born in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and Escoleta del Camí Vell to children born in 2020 and 2021. Provisional registration lists will be made public 14 May, with the definitive version scheduled for release 31 May.

New nursery
Education and culture chief Susana Labrador pointed out that Escoleta del Camí Vell, a stop-gap solution pending construction of the new Sant Ferran school, would close as soon as the the new facility opened.

Labrador said children enrolled at or attending Camí Vell would be automatically transferred to the Sant Ferran centre when the new nursery became operational, and added that a special process of enrolment would also take place for children under one, since the Sant Ferran school will offer classes for those ages, unlike Camí Vell.

Families with questions can contact the school at by phoning 971.32.34.15 (9.00am to 2.00pm, Monday to Friday) or by sending an email to escoleta@conselldeformentera.cat.
