FEARS are growing children will have to be sent to other schools if Ysgol Groeslon is not rebuilt.
Parents will quiz Gwynedd Council’s head of education Dewi Jones today amid concerns over the state of school buildings.
Heulwen Jones-Griffiths, of the Cylch Meithrin/Clwb Cinio Y Groeslon nursery group and lunch club, said pupils being sent to other schools would hit the nursery group and lunch club financially.
“Obviously we want him to move forward with the main plan of a new school, but we don’t think the short term plans are good enough,” said Mrs Jones-Griffiths who claimed conditions in temporary buildings were cramped.
Gwynedd Council’s cabinet member for education Cllr Sian Gwenllian said feedback from parents since the temporary buildings were redecorated in September was positive.
She added: “As a council we fully appreciate that the first two weeks of the term was a difficult time for everyone associated with the school and we sympathise with those affected.
“As promised in the letter that was sent to parents on September 14, now that the pupils have been moved in to their new temporary classrooms, the council is working on the second part of our response to the problem - that is to further investigate the condition of the building where years three, four, five and six were previously taught in order to understand the exact expenditure options for the short term.”
Cllr Gwenllian added: “The problems with the school buildings at Ysgol Y Groeslon mean that the creation of a brand new area school with the best possible facilities for pupils and staff is a very high priority for us.”
