The entrance to El Ingenio
A PLOT of land has been gifted by the Marbella council to the Andalucian Government Department of Education so that they may build a new Secondary School at a budgeted cost of €2.9 million.
The land is in the area known as El Ingenio, part of San Pedro Alcantara and covers more than 5,700 square metres according to mayor, Ángeles Muñoz who is delighted by the news.
The school itself will contain 12 classrooms, a music room, workshop, laboratory and audio visual unit and is expected to welcome up to 360 scholars once built.
Although initial plans were for it to be completed and open in time for the 2021/2022 academic year, this may now be in doubt depending upon the length of the state of alarm.
