IT LOOKS as if Guardamar del Segura is going to get its new school after a long wait.
The Ministry of Education has announced that it will shortly request that a contract for the building of the new Dama de Guardamar centre in the municipality be launched, with the aim to begin construction during the second half of next year.
Guardamar’s Mayor José Luis Sáez met with education officials in Valencia earlier this week when he was informed that the new school is part of the plans of the Valencian government for 2018, and will replace the current temporary prefabricated buildings used for classrooms.
It will be built on a municipal-owned plot of 15,265m2 located on Avenida del Puerto.
The pending project has an initial budget of around €5m and will have a capacity for 450 pupils in 12 primary and six infant classrooms. The main building comprised of two floors will have an assembly hall, kitchens and dining room, offices, library, science laboratory and a music room among others.
