'Environmentally-friendly' school for Llanelli

A new, environmentally-friendly school, will be officially opened today in Llanelli.

Ysgol Gymraeg Ffwrnes has been funded jointly by the Welsh Government and Carmarthenshire County Council.

It has been rated BREEAM “Outstanding” because of its environmentally-friendly features, including rainwater harvesting, external planting areas, solar panels and renewable energy sources.

When we invest in major capital projects like Ysgol Ffwrnes we are not only investing in the school and the futures of young people but also local communities.

This construction has provided training and employment opportunities which have benefited the local economy. I’m sure that pupils and teachers of Ysgol Ffwrnes will enjoy their new school for many years to come.
