Plans for £200,000 worth of improvement work at Welshpool High School are going before Powys County Council next Tuesday.
 
Building work worth nearly £2m will be carried out in Powys schools in the next year, if a report is approved by the county council’s board.
 
The Council’s Board will be asked to approve a major improvement programme worth £1.8m with a £200,000 contingency fund for the next financial year.
 
The programme includes £200,000 for roof work at Welshpool High School.
 
Board Member for Schools, Councillor David Jones said: “The programme contains funding for general work such as upgrading fire alarm systems, kitchen improvements and remedial works following fixed electrical testing programme.
 
“It also includes funding for toilet refurbishments arising from the Pennington Ecoli Report which, amongst its various findings, stressed the importance of good hygiene standards in school toilets.
 
“The work will help improve physical environment in which our young learners are taught and make sure, as far as possible, that school buildings comply with all relevant health and safety standards.”
 
Also included are £480,000 for resurfacing and building work at Newtown High School, window replacement and heating upgrade at Llangattock worth £80,000 and boiler and lighting work worth £100,000 at John Beddoes, Presteigne.
