A FEW weeks ago, the City Council of Calpe announced the assignment of a 3,600 m2 plot to the Colegio de Educacion Especial Gargasindi (special education centre).
The plot, designed to expand the facilities of the special education centre, is located next to the Escuela Infantil Silene d’ Ifac.
The council have also announced this week that the 2,610 m2 plot of the former municipal nursery will be assigned to the special education centre, offering more alternatives so restoration work can begin as soon as possible.
The former nursery plot is located adjacent to the special education centre and the council have undertaken to proceed with and pay for, if necessary, the demolition of the former nursery facilities.
The council have offered the two spaces after recognising that the current facilities at the special education centre are insufficient to provide for the needs of the students.
The special education centre was founded in 1980 to offer resources and care for children with serious and permanent educational needs in the Marina Alta region. Over the years and responding to the needs of the area, students from the Marina Baixa región have joined, with the centre now working with more than 60 students
