The school ‘’ Dolorcita Fernandez’’ is situated between Del Moral and Consolación streets.
The center of adult education was built in 1985 as a municipal center of the town hall with the collaboration of the Education Concil.
The name chosen by people was ”Dolorcita Fernandez”. She was a good and a modest woman that helped poor people in La Rambla.
The first school was a girl’s school.
We can distinguish 3 stages in its history:
- (1985- 1991). Literacy.
- (1991- 1998). Training for the world of work and the promotion of women. The students get a degree development of an ITC class and a training programme in the use of New Technologies.
- (2005). From adult education to permanent education. Now, new technologies are used in class thanks to the materials created by the teachers.
Every year all the students who go through this center make cultural trips to all regions of Spain.
Also, they travel to our neighboring country, Portugal, and in many occasions they cross to the Pirinees to visit France.
