Teachers in Wales are beginning to enjoy state-of-the-art teaching facilities as the government's 21st Century Schools Transitional Grant programme gathers pace.
With the first wave of school development almost complete, a new-look school was opened by the Welsh education minister Leighton Andrews yesterday (November 28th).
Following a £4 million extension and refurbishment project, the merger of Ysgol y Babanod and Felinfoel Juniors into the new-look Ysgol y Felin has now been completed.
SEN teachers in the school will benefit from a brand new special educational needs unit, while both Welsh and English language provisions will be catered for in the new school.
At the official opening ceremony yesterday (November 28th), Leighton Andrews said: "It is pleasing to see how the £4 million we provided through our 21st Century Schools Transitional Grant programme has transformed this school into an inspirational centre for learning and teaching."
The refurbishment project also created new infant classrooms alongside an Integrated Children's Centre.
Yesterday also saw the education minister cut the ribbon on a new Llanelli vocational skills construction centre.
