SOME £250million has been invested in schools across Carmarthenshire – and more is on the way.
Since the county council launched its Modernising Education Programme, massive investment has taken place in both primary and secondary schools.
To date, eight new primaries and two new secondary schools have been built, with major refurbishment and extensions in another 37 primary schools and 11 secondaries.
Work is continuing with two new schemes expected for completion soon – a new build at Trimsaran and an extension and refurbishment at Coedcae.
New schools are also being built for Ysgol Pen Rhos in Llanelli and Ysgol Parc y Tywyn in Burry Port; and an extension at St John Lloyd.
The MEP is funded by Carmarthenshire County Council with support from the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools initiative.
Education executive board member Cllr Glynog Davies said: “Our Modernising Education Programme is transforming our network of schools to provide accommodation and facilities every child in our county deserves.
“A huge investment has already been made and it is continuing with more than £20million being spent this financial year.
“We are committed to the MEP and will endeavour, with the continued support of the Welsh Government, to ensure every school in Carmarthenshire benefits from this programme.”
