Key stage 2 pupils from Ysgol Llanfair DC and Ysgol Carreg Emlyn have taken a sneaky peek at their new schools, as the building work progresses on the sites.
A new bilingual church school, in partnership with the Diocese of St Asaph, is being built on land opposite Bryn y Clwyd, Llanfair DC while in Clocaenog a new single site school for Ysgol Carreg Emlyn is being built to replace the current sites in Cyffylliog and Clocaenog.
Both schools are being funded through the Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools programme, in partnership with investment from Denbighshire County Council, which forms part of a £90 million investment in Denbighshire schools.
Bodelwyddan-based Wynne Construction is the main contractor appointed to carry out the works at both schools.
Alison Hourihane, Business and Community Development Manager, Wynne Construction said: “We are delighted to welcome the pupils to visit the sites in Llanfair DC and Clocaenog. This has provided them with an opportunity to familiarise themselves with their new school and its surroundings. During the tour, we also looked at the building plans and highlighted the types of construction skills involved in the build. Pupils also had the opportunity to see the workforce in action”.
Both schools are expected to open in the summer term 2019.
