The new school will include:
- Four classrooms with additional spaces for practical learning
- Dedicated space for the local Cylch Meithrin
- Practical rooms for art and food science
- A large library and
- An Information Technology room.
Rooms will also be available for use by the local community whenever this is possible.
The school has been designed to blend into the local landscape and will be eco-friendly. The wider Dysynni area also benefits from a further investment of £2.5 million to improve and to modernise Ysgol Pen-y-Bryn, Tywyn; Ysgol Dyffryn Dulas, Corris and Ysgol Pennal.
Councillor Sian Gwenllian, the Cabinet Member with responsibility for education, said:
“We welcome the fact that the National Park Authority has approved the planning application. This is a major step forward towards our objective of building a state of the art school for the children of the Bro Dysynni area.
“The fact that this new school will also create a number of jobs during its construction period is also good news for the local economy. As a Council we will do everything we can to ensure that local companies are aware of the opportunities that this scheme will offer them.”
