Meeting of Majorca’s Schools in Catalan language

On Monday, May 3rd, its was presented at a press conference the agenda
of the XXVI Meeting of Majorca’s Schools in Catalan language. It was
celebrated in Petra on Saturday, May 8th, coinciding with the end of
Correllengua. It is organized by the youth association Joves de
Mallorca per la Llengua as well as the Obra Cultural Balear (OCB). The
conference was attended by Rosa Barceló, Director of Language Policy
of the island’s government.

The first ever trobada (meaning meeting in Catalan language) was
organized in 1984. It brings together all schools that are teaching in
Catalan and rooted in the reality of the country. The organizers have
stressed that the meeting is for the entire school community, not just
children, and that novelty this year is the arrival Correllengua
(running for the language). For the occasion of Majorca 7,000 school
classrooms have been doing community work that is subject to
sustainable mobility, and a drawing that consisted of a sustainable
means of transport done by each child. It is expected that all
drawings be done with a giant mural.

At night there was a toast and a popular rock concert performed by the
Majorcan Volvox, the Valencian Aspencat, Brams (popular band which
resumes in Majorca after their performances years of silence) and
Lax'n'Busto, leading the Catalan rock band. Thousands of people
attended the event.
