Pupils have been putting their mark on two new schools in Denbighshire, which will see nearly £10million invested in rural education in the county.
Students from Ysgol Carreg Emlyn and Ysgol Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd have taken part in panel signing ceremonies as work on both schools progresses.
They have had the chance to sign panels which make up the structure for their new school buildings.
A new bilingual church school, in partnership with the Diocese of St Asaph, is being built on land opposite Bryn y Clwyd, Llanfair while in Clocaenog a new single site school for Ysgol Carreg Emlyn is being built.
Both schools are being funded through the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme, in partnership with investment from Denbighshire County Council.
Cllr Huw Hilditch-Roberts, lead member for Education, Children and Young People, said:
“It has been encouraging to see pupils at both schools take such an interest in their new school buildings.
“Supporting our young people and making sure they have modern school facilities that further enhance their education is a priority for the Council and these new facilities are part of a £90m investment in Denbighshire schools.
“Work is progressing well at both sites and both schools are expected to be open by the summer of next year.”
Bodelwyddan-based Wynne Construction is the main contractor appointed to carry out the works at both schools.
At Ysgol Carreg Emlyn the installation of the structural insulated panels is complete with windows set to be installed in the coming weeks ahead of internal works.
At Ysgol Llanfair Dyffryn Clwyd work on the installation of structural insulated panels commenced at the start of September.
