Bird’s eye view of the new Ysgol Maes Y Gwendraeth
People can have a bird’s eye view of the new Ysgol Maes Y Gwendraeth with aerial footage taken of the site.
The film of the £18.4million investment has been unveiled for the official opening of the school taking place this week.
Council Leader Cllr Emlyn Dole will unveil the plaque as part of the ceremony taking place at the school on November 30.
The scheme included a new two storey design and technology and science block, linked to the existing building.
A new sports hall houses four badminton courts, together with an adjoining classroom and changing rooms.
An energy centre has been constructed, and external work included a new school entrance, hard play areas, car park, bus parking area and games courts.
Various areas within the existing buildings have been refurbished together with re-modelling of playing fields.
The investment at Ysgol Maes Y Gwendraeth was made through Carmarthenshire County Council’s Modernising Education Programme, delivered with funding from the Welsh Government through its 21st Century Schools programme.
The official opening will include performances from school pupils, and addresses from dignitaries.
Education executive board member Cllr Gareth Jones said: “This footage demonstrates the huge investment that has taken place at the school to provide the best environment for pupils to learn and flourish.”
