Castelar College is still alive and kicking
The situation that the school finds itself in was mainly triggered by the former General Manager, Rosa Maria Martinez Asensio, and her partner Placido Garcia Salas, who are both now currently implicated in two criminal procedures for the alleged misappropriation of funds from Castelar College as well as charges of alleged forgery and fraud. These prosecutions by Court No. 5 in San Javier will be heard in July and in the meantime, the current management team of the school has done everything in its power to maintain the normal daily operations of the school; ensuring the continued excellent education of the pupils, whilst having every faith in the local justice system.
RUMOUR AND SPECULATION
The faculty of staff also fully believes that the normal development of the school year should not be affected by any news not related to school activities and do not appreciate unwarranted public concern, which can sometimes only lead to rumour and speculation.
With this very much in mind, the management team of this privately owned school still intends to keep alive the successful institution that is Castelar.
The Headteacher told RTN, “Unfortunately, recent articles published in various newspapers did not give a fair and true description of the current situation; specifically regarding the owner of the school and completely failed to mention the excellent support given to him and the school, which is actually the victim of a massive fraud, by parents, teachers and staff on a daily basis.”
The school has already secured its opening for the next school year and for summer camps and schools during 2012 and 2013, and will continue to strive with all its strength.
Administrators have told the head teacher that the school has one year to prove that it is making a profit, which it is, and then it will be allowed to remain open and will possibly be sold as a going concern.
The Headteacher said: “Despite the negative press, numbers have increased for coming school year and we have no doubts that the school will be making a healthy profit when the administrators reassess the situation.” She also added that there are dozens of parties of school children coming to visit the centre during the summer from all over Europe, including the UK and Russia. “It really is business as usual,” she added.

Is this true that the school is profitable and is going to be ok financially? I was looking to put my children there,but I hear none of the teachers have been paid or expecting to be paid.Report
