Lauaxeta Ikastola

Letter from the principal

Lauaxeta Ikastola is a school whose over-riding mission is to guide each pupil through their individual development, thereby enabling each one to fully realise their own personal potential.

Our aim is to ensure that the school and families work together to enable our pupils to set their own goals and fight to achieve them, as well as to live in society, helping to better it through their personality, ideas and competencies.

The joint endeavour of the entire school community (families, pupils and staff) and the management of excellence and innovation according to the European EFQM model, continue to be the keys to the success of Lauaxeta Ikastola; an approach that has led to the school being awarded Europe’s highest accolade as an Excellence Award Winner.

I have spent my entire professional career at this school, striving to achieve these two major goals: improve the educational project and the quality of its management. This explains my huge passion for Lauaxeta Ikastola and my pride in it, and I consider it a great honour to be assigned the duties involved in its management.

Furthermore, I have the pleasure and confidence of knowing that I am not alone in this task. I am backed by a highly experienced team of professional staff that are fully committed to the schools’ objectives.

Finally, I should like to express my heartfelt thanks to each and every one of the families that have chosen this school and entrusted us with the education of your sons and daughters.

I am personally at the disposal of all the members of this school community (families, staff and pupils) to listen to any opinions that may help to improve our ikastola, our school, and achieve even better results.

People development to build society
