VICENTE MARZA, who heads the Generalitat’s Education department, recently visited the site of the San Vicente Ferrer school’s new wing. The project is financed by the regional government’s Plan Edificant, which has been introduced to help town halls build or improve schools with a minimum of red tape.The Schools boss was accompanied by other regional and provincial education officials as well as Teulada-Moraira’s mayor Rosa Vila and local councillors. The San Vicente Ferrer infants and primary school will have a new wing with 12 units for the first two phases of infants’ education.
Work on the building, which will cost an estimated €2.53 million, is due to begin during the current school year and should be finished in 2021.The San Vicente Ferrer school is not the only local centre that will have Plan Edificant improvements, as Teulada’s secondary school is waiting to receive the go-ahead for a new roof. Moraira’s Cap d’Or school has also asked to be included in the programme in order to carry out repairs to the roof and make interior modifications to include a class for two-year-olds.
“Building classes for two-year-olds will help us to provide a better service for the local population,” Marza stressed.
“We are especially committed to this first phase of infant education,” he said.
