The new £3.6 million Peniel C.P. School is a state-of-the-art building housing a number of special features including an ICT suite, special educational needs therapy and group room, multi purpose-hall and a number of eco-friendly facilities including harvesting rainwater from the roof to flush the toilets.
The new school received £1.6m from the Welsh Assembly Government and £2m from Carmarthenshire County Council.
The Minister said:
“This new school with its marvellous facilities will inspire pupils and teachers alike, and will be of great benefit to the community as a whole.
“We are committed to ensuring that all schools in Wales are fit for purpose and properly funded, as outlined in our One Wales strategy.
“Peniel Community Primary School is the latest example of our pledge to continue a major capital investment programme to upgrade school buildings exceeding the sums provided over previous years.
“The Welsh Assembly Government and Carmarthenshire County Council continue to work in close partnership to offer the best possible education in the best possible environment for our young people.”
