PROBLEMS: Pablo Ruiz Picasso school
Credit: Junta de Andalucia
THE mayor of Fuengirola, Ana Mula, has met with the Junta de Andalucia Minister of Education to demand that action is taken over the state of the CEIP Pablo Ruiz Picasso school.
She argued that the building had serious structural problems which meant that the safety of the young children who attended the establishment as well as their teachers was compromised with a potential major accident waiting to happen.
The mayor said that this was a long-standing problem and presented a structural report highlighting the deficiencies in the building when she travelled to meet with the minister.
The council sees the need to either rebuild the existing structure or to use two nearby plots to build a completely new structure which would be both modern and safe.
It was agreed that the matter would now be reviewed by the Andalusian Public Education Agency (APAE) which would be responsible for evaluating the claims and recommending a way forward.
Mayor Mula also took the opportunity to raise the other issues of local interest including the remodelling and opening of the IES Ramón y Cajal gymnasium, as well as the upgrading of the sports arena at the Azahar school.
