The territorial delegate for Educational Development and Vocational Training and University, Research and Innovation in Malaga, Miguel Briones, visited the Malaga municipality of Benahavís on Tuesday to hold a meeting with the mayor of the town, José Antonio Mena, in order to address issues related to the improvement of the educational infrastructure of the municipality.
CEIP Daidín de Benahavís is the only public school in the municipality and was opened in 1993 to accommodate around 150 students. With the progressive increase in units, the lack of space has been accentuating over the years, without previous governments having done anything to alleviate this situation.
At the meeting, which took place in a climate of total cordiality and collaboration between the administrations, the immediate transfer of use of some parks that are located next to the school as a recreation area and sports use during the school period was agreed upon.
In addition, both institutions have agreed to jointly pay for the construction of a new three-line CEIP (C3) and a two-line institute (D2) on a plot outside the urban area.
It is an ambitious project for which an estimated global budget of ten million euros will be allocated, with modern, accessible and environmentally friendly buildings, which will not only cover the schooling needs in the municipality itself, but also of the entire county area.
The meeting was also attended by the Delegate Councilor for Education and Culture, María de los Ángeles Mena; the Delegate Councilor for Works and Infrastructures, Festivities, the Environment and Urbanizations, María Isabel Guerrero; the delegate councilor for Personnel, Citizen Security and Health, Diego Guerrero; the Delegate Councilor for Youth, Operational Services, Purchases and Supplies, María Merchán; the delegate councilor for Tourism, Immigration, Communication and Local Development, Scott Marshall and members of the technical service.
On behalf of the territorial delegation of Malaga, the provincial general secretary, María Lozano; the head of the Educational Planning service, Alejandro Berrido; the head of the urban planning service of the Territorial Development Delegation in Malaga, María del Carmen Moreno; and the manager of the Andalusian Public Agency in Malaga, José Labrador.
