Forestal i del Medi Natural” was a walking trip from Vidrà to Sant Pere de
Torelló, where we could introduce ourselves to the forestry area
Through the path, we knew different forestry arboreal, bushy and herbaceous species of the traditional vegetation Mediterranean weather. We learned to interpret different ways a forest area can be and, to know some measuring tools that are used to carry out a dasymetric inventory.

A new year begins. And we evaluate how the learning has been in DUAL
studies during the summer season. Because of covid19, we had to
postpone the start. But once we had assimilated the situation, all the
appropriate adaptations were carried to achieve correct monitoring of the
learning process, always keeping in mind the new sanitary conditions.
The personal and direct connection between the third parts implied in the
stay, student-school-company, guarantee this is enriching and accurate
for all of them.
From the school, we strongly bet for this professional stay system in the company, and for this reason, we realized it would be interesting to extend it to the rest of the training courses taught at school. Being always motivated for the exit of good experiences lived in the last years in the“Cicle de agropecuaria”. We know that walking forward in this direction, we increase the possibilities of the student incorporation in the company where he/she has carried out his DUAL stay.
Visit to the reproduction tortoise center of Albera, located in Garriguella, and “Parque Medioambiental” in Selva.

allows evaluating students’ competencies achieved through their
The link connection among the learning and professional training defines their singularity regarding the last projects realized so far. This year, the development, monitoring, and presentation have been different due to the exceptional situation we are living in nowadays.

I ́m Laia Rius, and I’ve already finalized “Ramaderia i Assistència en Sanitat Animal” studies in EFA Quintanes. I achieved an honour enrolment and a recognition in Argó awards organized by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. It has been possible due to my stay in school. That has helped me in my personal and academically development.
I take with me a lot of good memories of these two years, and I recommend everyone who wants to focus his/her professional career in a farming or rural scope. I believe these studies are very useable. Either for the people who want to focus in ranching or the ones who want to keep in their university degrees like veterinary science or agronomist engineering because they offer you the required theoretical bases and great practice experience in different companies.
I’m Estel Barceló and in the middle of the pandemic situation I’ve ended “Cicle Superior de Ramaderia i Assistència en Sanitat Animal” in Quintanes. It seems impossible time passes so quickly. I still have in mind the day I began. Despite, a bittersweet finishing, I appreciate a lot these two years studying what I’m passionate for, learning new concepts and being part of this school.
I do not know what the future will bring me, but now I am sure where I am, what I want to be and what I like to be. From here, I would like to encourage everyone to discover this satisfactory feeling that can be get from Quintanes and all its people around.
Last but not least, I would like to encourage all of you to take in advantage the chances are planned within these studies: visits, study programs, trips and so on. All of them are priceless!! Besides, all the moments lived through Quintanes are unforgettable, and being quite honestly, Quintanes has made me grow as a person. I’m very grateful. Thanks to Quintanes I can leave with a full bag. I hope we’ll get in touch soon! Thanks, Quintanes family!
How easy is learning when you want to learn, you like what you’re learning and, they help you in learning

2n students of GM “Producció Agropecuària” did two educational visits to
complement the machinery syllabus.
In the morning, they visited Can Fraser d’Aiguaviva, where Mr. Jordi Aulet explained to us all kinds of details such as management, maintenance service, failures, productions, prices, profitability and, so on, of all their machinery used.
While in the afternoon, students visited Albert Tulsà s.l company in Riudellots de la Selva. An enterprise for agricultural work to third parties. Albert showed us and explained to us all the machinery they have, the history and evolution of the company as well as the daily work. Above all, the students liked so much the new company acquisition, a tractor of 420cv, of the Class Xerion brand with four directional wheels of the same diameter. From here, we would like to express our gratitude to both companies for their participation and personalized advice to our students.
One of the keys to the educational system of alternation is the
engagement of some teachers - usually called “instructors” - with multiple
functions beyond teaching.
The instructor goes along with the student in all their studies itinerary and socio-professional incorporation because they are an active actor/actress inside this same socio-professional context and territorial in which the student is part.
Is the paradigm of a new academic profession: is no longer the teacher of a subject, but the teacher who encourages, guides, advises, helps, teaches when it’s necessary, accompanies along the educational way, and provokes the learning interest. (Andreu Gutiérrez, ex instructor of Quintanes).
This week has been held the 41st machinery exhibition in Saragossa, FIMA 2020. On Thursday 27 of February, the 1o of “Agropecuària de Grau mitjà” students, the 1o of “Ramaderia I Sanitat Animal” and the 1o of “Paisatgisme” attended in this important exhibition. They were a total of 62 students.
Three students of 1st “Grau superior de Paisatgisme” were the
representative of the school in the competition of this year. They got a
very merit third position. They will be leaded by Mr.Toni Martorell, Quintanes' Head Teacher.

Mr. Manel Lara showed us all and each of one company installations while answering our doubts. At the end of the facilities visit, they took a look at the store and in the exhibition zone of new tractors, where we asked all the questions we had prepared before to take good advantage of the visit.
