Ysgol Awel Y Mynydd was officially opened by the Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams AM on Thursday 23rd November. The new £8.8 million area school provides teaching facilities for 420 primary age children, combined with nursery facilities, break out spaces and group rooms, balconies and terraces to encourage informal learning. The school was built by Read Construction and opened to pupils in September, jointly funded by Welsh Government’s 21st Century Schools Programme and Conwy County Borough Council.
Staff and pupils welcomed the Cabinet Secretary to the building before being joined by local dignitaries in a tour of the new facilities. She later enjoyed a performance by the children in the main school hall before unveiling a plaque to commemorate the occasion in front of invited guests.
