Agurain (Araba) Located in the historical territory of Alava, Salvatierra/Agurain belongs to the homonym municipality. It is placed between the Entzia and Iturrieta mountain ranges. It is formed by five towns among which Salvatierra/Agurain stands out, as it is the administrative capital of the area and has a medieval old part surrounded by a wall. It was declared Historic Monument in 1975. The old part is divided in three main streets: Zapatari, Carnicería and Mayor. The latest is home to the churches of Santa María and San Juan Bautista, both with altarpieces from the 16th century. The pilgrim route of Saint James passes through the municipality. The landscape offers many routes, both trekking and mountain bike routes. Its worth visiting some of the megalithic monuments in the surroundings: the dolmen of Sorginetxe in Arrizala, the cromlech of Mendiluze and the menhir of Itaida, situated in the Entzia range. Those remains are near the Opakua mountain pass and are very well preserved.

Aniturri BHI: Its History Aniturri opened its doors in 1980. At that time, there were two buildings separated by 1 km: one building was called “the Monks” and the second one was in the Moncloa neighbourhood. Only some subjects were taught in the Monks. Students had to move from one building to the other to study other subjects.In 1990, fashion & design and engineeringwere taught at Aniturri when it was also avocational training school. Some years later,the Basque Government centralized thevocational training courses in Gasteiz. That’show Aniturri became just a (Post-)SecondarySchool Now, there is only one building: Aniturri. The Secondary School has this name because there is a stream near the school called Aniturri.

In 2005-2006 we got involved in a Comenius 1 project called Education through Sports with SZ Silesia, a school in Poland. Since 2006-2007 we have developed an innovative project on European Dimension which includes a trip to London, a European Studies syllabus and the celebration of Europe Day. We joined the ELOS net in 2007 and we have started our third multilateral Comenius project. As a result of the implementation of the new Basque Curriculum and being an ELOS school, we teach Citizenship and Ethics in English. We have an exchange programme with Richard-von-Weizsäcker-Schule, Öhringen. Thanks to the English language assistants programme, we have met Robert, Nathan, Curtis and Julie.
