The City Council invests 270,000 euros to cover the courtyards of public schools (27/04/2018)

The Government team contributed an additional 100,000 euros to optimize the results of the five works executed

The mayor of Santomera, Inmaculada Sánchez Roca, together with the councilors of Education, María José Medina Palao, of Works and Services, Joaquín Rubio Gomariz, and of Participation and Transparency, Víctor Egío, visited this morning the five public schools of the municipality for present in society the results of the municipal initiative #MiColeALaSombra.

Thanks to the same, the five public schools of the municipality have premiered throughout the school year pergolas that significantly extend the shadow areas of their respective courtyards.

The roof of the courtyards originated from the citizens, who chose these projects as winners in the participatory budgets of last year.

Based on the reserved items, the budgetary allocation to carry out the execution amounted to 171,000 euros;

However, in order to achieve better results, the City decided to increase that amount to a total of 270,000 euros, entirely from its own funds.

"Covering the courtyards of the five schools escapes municipal competitions and has been an important economic effort, but we can not look the other way when it comes to protecting the health of our schoolchildren," said the mayor, Inmaculada Sánchez Roca .

The act of presentation of the initiative #MiColeALaSombra began at 11:30 am with a round of visits to the schools Campoazahar (La Matanza), Ricardo Campillo, Nuestra Señora del Rosario and Madre Esperanza (El Siscar).

In each of these centers have repeated the thanks of the management teams and the traditional discovery of the commemorative plaques, adorned with verses of the poet Santomerano Julián Andúgar: "I took the pen and signed: a town begins to stop being if you do not have him. "

A clear allusion to the importance that the citizen's will, expressed through participatory budgeting, has had in the construction of the covers.

Then, at 1:30 p.m., the official presentation at the CEIP Ramón Gaya was held, where regional deputies Joaquín López, Emilio Ivars (PSOE) and Óscar Urralburu (Podemos) were also present, as well as a broad representation of the management teams and ampas of the five beneficiary educational centers, of the architecture studios and of the construction companies responsible for the execution of the project.

On behalf of the governing teams of the five schools, the director of Ramón Gaya, Fuensanta Caravaca, congratulated her "congratulations to the Government team for the initiative of the participatory budgets, which makes democratic the management of the municipal economy and gives voice to the citizens to express their needs and interests. "

"We have been claiming these structures for years for the benefit of our teachers and students, because the WHO warns us that too many hours of exposure to the sun are harmful to health, and today they are finally a reality," he added.

On behalf of the municipal councils Araceli Herrero also intervened, who stressed that "these covers will allow our students and teachers, and sometimes also parents, to enjoy outdoor activities even when the weather conditions are not ideal" .

In a similar line to his predecessor, he wanted to show his gratitude to the government team "for his involvement in these works" and, also, particularly, "as a mother of two students at the Ricardo Campillo school, for the recent construction of the school cafeteria" .

"Today is a very important day for the municipal government team", has been quick to point out the councilman of Works and Services, Joaquín Rubio, "because all this is the result of a joint work developed in collaboration with shelters, cloisters, equipment managers, students, architects, builders and municipal technicians ".

"Participatory budgets have to be binding, we must attend to what people vote", he added, and then listed other interventions made in the last months in the educational field, "less visible but equally important, such as the plan of absenteeism, the construction of school canteens, the replacement of asbestos covers or the air conditioning of classrooms ".

Finally, the mayor, Inma Sánchez Roca, stressed that "Santomera is the first municipality in the region that provides all its educational centers with roofs that extend the shadow areas, and has done it to the kidney, with its own budgets. , while much larger and more capable administrations have only been able to cast two shadows in two schools in reference to the regional government, which is nothing more than willingness and commitment, and we have it, "he remarked.

"In three years of government we have invested more than half a million euros in educational infrastructures, an area in which a priori we should contribute little as a municipality, but this has allowed us to realize two of our main premises: to ensure that all schools have the same services and make our commitment to education a reality, which is undoubtedly the first.
