Kids told to wrap-up as boiler breaks

More than 75 children have been advised to wrap-up in extra layers of clothing today due to a boiler breaking at their school.

Ysgol Gymraeg Y Trallwng is temporarily located at the former Ardwyn School (pictured) on Red Bank due to its proposed new facility being held up by a bizarre listing application at the Maes-y-dre site.

And the state of the old school building has been highlighted this week with kids having to learn without the central heating working.

In a message to parents last night, the school, which teaches primarily in Welsh, announced:

“School will be open tomorrow, however, despite a number of emails and phone calls expressing the urgency Powys has not sent an engineer to fix the boiler. If you feel it would be too cold at school to send your children, that’s fine. They do not have to wear their school uniform and can wear warm, layered clothing. We apologise for this continuing issue but are doing all we can, as a school, to get it fixed.”

We have dropped Powys County Council an email this morning for comment.

Last month we reported how the new Welsh speaking school at Maes-y-dre was on hold due to an application by a small group of former students to have the building listed with CADW. If this is successful, it will throw a huge spanner in the works to develop Primary education in the town.
