Adeje’s top ten students are going to Cork

Ten of Adeje’s top secondary school students will spend two weeks in Ireland this summer

The winners of Adeje ‘Young Talent’ competition have been announced – the students have all been recognised for their excellent grades and other contributions to the town during the academic year. The students have been chosen from the borough’s public schools.

This year, as well as recognising the effort the students have put into exams and class subjects, contributions to other areas of life, social work, helping others, etc, have also been taken into account.

The ten lucky students, who will be spending two weeks in Cork, in Ireland this summer, are María Magdalena Rodríguez Linares, Amaya González Sola, Kitana Desvignes, Jing Li Li, Alba Rey Merino, Ayoub Bachaou Mohamed, Laura Michelle Ziegler, Atenea Gloria Rodríguez Mendoza, Ainoha González López and Víctor José Arzola Murillo. They were told details of the award this week in the Adeje youth centre, by the councillor for youth Zebenzui Chinea Linares.

The two-week stay in Cork will see the ten winners, accompanied by members of the Adeje youth team, enjoy leisure time, with residents, families and students from Cork, as well as improving their English with an intensive language course.

The winners of the Adeje talented youth 2019 competition will be going to Ireland

 

Adeje council, through the offices of department of youth under councillor Zebenzui Chinea Linares, has just announced details of the third year of awards for the borough’s most talented young people, given annually to a number of top students from Adeje’s secondary schools and to those who are being recognised for their contribution to the collective wellbeing of their local community.

“This year we are going a bit further with the prize we will be awarding, as this year we are extending the awards to those who have also dedicated themselves to some form of social service in the community, contributing to a balance of social and educative equality” commented Zebenzui Chinea.

The prize this year has been chosen to reinforce the education of the young winners, and is a two-week summer camp in Cork, in Ireland, accompanied by specialised personnel from the department of youth. The trip will be from the 6th to the 20th of July and the prize includes flights, transfers and the two-week stay.

“We in the department of youth believe that any investment in education is important and language skills are fundamental for further studies these days, even more so when we live in a zone that welcomes millions of tourists every year”, said the councillor.

The winners (up to a maximum of ten persons) are chosen at the end of the 2018/2019 academic year from students who will be finishing studies in either of the Adeje public secondary schools, I.E.S Adeje or I.E.S Galeón based on their studies or ‘social commitment’.

The idea to reward students in the borough arose with the objective being to recognise dedication to studies, place value on excellence, and underline the need for academic progress among students. “We are working to promote quality training for our students in secondary education and incentivise our young people to continue with their studies when they have completed basic obligatory classes”, added councillor Linares. The addition, this year, of the ‘social commitment’ category is in recognition of the fact that this is also a very important facet in the development and education of young people, on the road to a more integrated approach to education.
