Mid and West Assembly Members Eluned Morgan and Joyce Watson welcomed news of £11.8 million from the Welsh Labour Government towards the cost of five new-build primary schools in the Gwernyfed catchment area of Powys.
The money has been made available as part of the £1.4bn 21st Century Schools and Education Programme, a unique collaboration between the Welsh Government and Local Authorities with the aim of creating a generation of 21st Century Schools in Wales.
Eluned Morgan AM said, “This is good news for education in Mid Wales. Our children need first-class facilities as well as first-class education right from the very start to help them succeed in life”.
Regional AM Joyce Watson said, “This is wonderful news for the Gwernyfed area. 21st Century Schools is more than a building programme, it is about updating and improving education for a modern country.”
