Francisco Ayala de Fatima School, Castril, needs to upgrade its facilities and add an extension so it can continue its education in line with 21st-century standards. The AMPA La Casilla>> waited for Ana Dolores Berrocal, Education Delegate, to accept them for several months. They have followed her instructions to present the demands but with no success.
Many mothers who are members the AMPA indicate that their patience is at a point where it's almost impossible to keep going. They are now considering pursuing their claims in a more aggressive manner, as they feel the school's letters denigrating them have not served any purpose. .
Management of the school has also sent a detailed report detailing all the requirements of a school that was built in 1997. The school does not have any repairs or an extension. This is because the school is in the Castilian Annex of Fatima where young people are likely to increase their numbers. Castril's population is much larger. The school has seen an increase in its student population by 8% every year over the past few years.
The school needs to build several classrooms, a new gym, or small pavilion, that allows students to exercise in the extreme cold. It is located on the Sierra de Castril slopes.
There is a lot of damage, including toilets with deficiencies, broken shutters and leaks on the roof. The gym was converted into a classroom where it is extremely cold. Inadequate lighting and a very bad condition playground. These are only a few of the shortcomings that were highlighted by the AMPA. The school's management also ratified the report. There were many writings that were sent to the Delegation of Education, but no response.
