Official opening for Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth
An official opening is taking place to celebrate the £18.4million investment at Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth.
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: “The investment at Maes y Gwendraeth provides the right kind of environment for pupils to learn and flourish.
“It is the latest in a long line of schemes which are transforming schools across the county.”
