School’s £4m top-class makeover is complete
WORK has been completed on a full refurbishment of Ysgol Pontyberem.
The £4 million investment included the total refurbishment and remodelling of the school including a new roof, floors and walls.
Work started in July 2017 by local developers Lloyd and Gravell.
The project was by Carmarthenshire Council and the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme and is part of the council’s Modernising Education Programme which aims to
give every child access to first-class facilities.
Internal works included a complete reconfiguration of the building with new floors and ceilings, installation of a lift platform for wheelchair users, updating electrical equipment and a new ventilation system.
In addition, the building underwent a full decorating programme, and specialist rooms were created for additional learning needs, design and technology and art.
An official opening will be held in July.
The Carmarthenshire Council executive board member responsible for education, councillor Glynog Davies, said: “It was great to see the transformation at Ysgol Pontyberem, it looks like we have created a new school and more importantly now provides the kind of high-quality learning environment which we are creating through the Modernising Education Programme.”
