The project was announced by the Mayor José Luis Sáez after the council approved the use of a brown field site in the SUP-7 sector of the town. All the plans are now in place and a full technical study has been carried out.
The school – to be called Dama de Guardamar – will, should everything go to plan, open in time for the start of the 2018/19 school year next September, announced councillor Pilar Gay.
“This is thanks to almost all the local council who have shown that the most important thing our children can receive is a quality education, and for this they need suitable educational infrastructures,” she commented.
The new building will be constructed on a council-owned piece of land on the Avenida del Puerto measuring 15,265m2. The budget set aside for the new school is around €5,000,000 and will replace the present school that is made up of portacabins.
The school will have 12 classes for primary aged children and six for the infants, catering for 450 pupils in total. The completed two-storey building will feature and assembly hall, kitchen, canteen, offices, a library, laboratory, and a dedicated music room among others.
