Pupils made their mark on their new school at a special ceremony in Dyffryn Aeron, Ceredigion.

Pupils from Ciliau Parc, Dihewyd, and Felinfach schools signed their names onto the structural material of their future school.

The Structural Insulated Panels (SIP) Signing Ceremony took place on March 5.

Council officials, school representatives, and local councillors gathered to celebrate a significant milestone in the school's development.

SIPs, are a lightweight and efficient building system made off-site, will form the walls and roof of the new school.

Wynne Construction were given the task of creating the new school by Ceredigion County Council. The school will accommodate up to 210 primary school pupils.

There will be modern facilities and equipment, additional capacity for ALN, Welsh Language and pre-school provision, and a 3G sports pitch with floodlights.

Councillor Bryan Davies, leader of Ceredigion County Council, said: "It’s a pleasure to be here today amongst other representatives of the Council, Councillors, representatives from Welsh Government, contractors and of course our school pupils, to see the progress that has been made at the site.

"It’s great to be able to celebrate a significant milestone such as this in the Dyffryn Aeron area, and we look forward to seeing the site progressing."

Bryn Roberts, the site manager for the project, said: "We enjoy celebrating the completion of the SIPs on our school builds, as it reflects the first real step towards the delivery of a modern, high-quality facility.

"Inviting pupils, staff, and Council members onto site to make their mark in the history of the new school is always an exciting event, and we hope they all enjoyed learning about how the new school is being built and having a first look around.

"The scheme has been progressing well, and now the SIPs’ work has been completed, we can focus on ensuring the building is watertight and move onto the next stage of works.”

This £16.3m project is funded by the Welsh Government’s Sustainable Communities for Learning Programme (£10.1m), the Welsh Government’s Childcare and Early Years Capital Programme (£1.6m), and Ceredigion County Council, who is contributing £4.6m.
