Eunice Pastor will become the new Executive Director of Colegio Alfa & Omega

After 38 years as Executive Director of the Colegio Alfa & Omega, Jorge J. Pastor has announced his upcoming retirement. Jorge and his wife Encarnita’s vision when establishing Alfa & Omega in 1979, was to provide an alternative to the existing educational options on the Costa Blanca using innovative pedagogical methods as Spain transitioned to democracy following the death of Franco. The project began with the Montgó Pre-School which is widely acknowledged as a ground-breaking milestone in the region and over time has evolved into one of Spain’s leading primary/secondary schools. Colegio Alfa & Omega is now in the process of adding a baccalaureate program for college bound students.

Stepping into the role of Executive Director is Eunice Pastor Sendra who for the past 12 years has served as head of Alfa & Omega’s primary school. Eunice, trained as an elementary school teacher and holding a master's degree in School Mediation, has spent 20 years at Alfa & Omega. In her new role, Eunice will lead a senior administrative team consisting of Maria Eugenia Utor, Candida Garrido and Hugo Walthon. New initiatives on the horizon are a dual American baccalaureate, robotics and programming with LEGO and the continuation of several innovative projects already in progress.     “We founded Alfa & Omega upon the principles of respect and the development of each child’s unique personality.  Because each child is different, we closely align our teaching with each child’s particular learning style and interests. And although Alfa & Omega is a private non-profit institution, we welcome all students who are open to our beliefs and lifestyle without regard to gender, religion, social class and ethnicity,” the school said in a statement.     (Translated from the original story published August 30, 2017 in lamarinaplaza.com.)
