Castegating Children from the Comedor
21 October 2008 @ 22:49

So what is it about the local school that they have to tar everyone with the same brush. My son came home today for the 3rd time in 5 school days to tell us he had been Castegated as a result of his friends behavior in the Comedor. Now when we first were told this we had no idea what they were talking about...

The Comedor is where the children eat their lunch during school. This is a great concept as you pay to have your children stay in school from 13:00 - 14:30, during which time they have a 4 course lunch and time to play and socialise with their friends. This means they socialise with their friends (spanish...English..dutch etc) and start to learn even more Castellano. However when some or all of them talk too much then the children are made to sit out their lunch against a wall in the yard instead of playing. The rule seems to be that if some are naughty all get punished

This of course seems a little harsh to me...but you have to sit back and let this all go over your head...I am working on the basis that this will of course build further character. Of course if could just make those who are well behaved just think...to hell with it, I'm being punished anyway I might as well do something to deserve it :-)

Only time will tell...here's to tomorrow and another day of Castegation

On the other hand, it just might make the well behaved majority have a quiet word with the naughty few and then maybe the castegations will become less.

my best memories are of family holidays in spain when i was 7+ years of age, i am now 49 years of age and have the good fortune to be running a Hotel on the Costa Blanca Coast (Cabo Roig). What makes Spain is the fiestas which take place all year round, the fiestas bring together all nationalities, of course the sunny climate helps, the Spanish people are some of the friendliest people you could wish to meet, especially if you can speak their language.
