Work Progresses well at Y Pant School
Work is progressing well on the construction of the Council’s latest multi-million-pound investment project as part of its ambitious 21st Century Schools Programme.
The £24.1m investment in Y Pant Comprehensive School will see some existing buildings and all temporary mobile classrooms being replaced with brand new 21st Century facilities.
A Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and 3G pitch have already been completed and handed over by contractors Morgan Sindall with the new facilities already being enjoyed by the school and the local community.
A “Topping Off” ceremony has been held to recognise the important milestone of construction works reaching their highest point.
At the ceremony, Cllr Eudine Hanagan, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “It is fantastic to see this £24.1million project, which will benefit so many young people in the Pontyclun area, coming to life.
“Over the last four years the Council has invested significantly, with the support of Welsh Government, in developing our educational facilities so pupils can benefit from the very best learning environments.
“We remain committed to investing in education which is why an additional £2m has been identified for capital projects in schools as part of the wider £23m investment in priority areas with education also receiving £3.1m extra next year as part of our budget strategy.
“Y Pant Comprehensive continues to be a high achieving school and great credit must be given to the pupils, staff and governing body for this.
“However, as we get closer to the completion of this project, I am certainly looking forward to seeing what our young people from the communities served by Y Pant can achieve with the benefit of the 21st Century Schools facilities being developed as part of this £24.1million investment.”
