The Latin American School of the Inner West (formally the Dulwich Hill Spanish School) was established prior to 1996 and it was located at Dulwich Hill Primary School. Dr Criss Jones Díaz and Ramon Díaz Gomez became involved in the School when their oldest son commenced Kindergarten in 1996. Both their children were students from Kindergarten to Year 6. From 1996, in collaboration with Helen Tsaltis, the then Treasurer we incorporated the School with the NSW Department of Fair Trading. In 2002, the name of the School was changed to Escuela Latinoamericana Central Oeste (Latin American School of the Inner West) Inc. and our Constitution was amended to reflect this change. In 2002, we moved from Dulwich Hill Primary School to Ashfield Primary School.
For almost 20 years, our School continued to exist as a not-for-profit, volunteer organisation whose management committee members (mostly parents) contributed their own time to sustain the viability of the School.
In June 2020, Criss and Ramon retired from running the school and the school merged with Amistad – another Spanish community language school with largely similar aims. The school at Ashfield continues as one of the four campuses run by Amistad.
