old school villaverde

Villaverde - old school
Radio Sintonia:

The City Council of La Oliva insists on the disaffection of the old school of Villaverde.

In an effort to revitalize and give new life to the old Villaverde school, the Councilor for Education of the City of La Oliva, Omaira Saavedra, has made arrangements since October 2023 with the Ministry of Education of the Government of the Canary Islands, requesting the disaffection of the school to begin the long-awaited improvement and transformation works. The municipal institution claims to be currently "with its hands tied", since, as they explain, the powers to disaffect the school fall on the Government of the Canary Islands.

The de-affectation of an infrastructure refers to the process by which an asset is officially removed or released from its initial use or specific destination. In this case, the City Council of La Oliva seeks that the old Villaverde school ceases to be linked to the specific educational purpose or any other restricted use that it initially had. Once disaffection is achieved, the infrastructure can be considered for other uses or projects.

The Councilor for Education of the City of La Oliva, Omaira Saavedra, since October last year, has made up to two searches to the Ministry of Education of the Government of the Canary Islands, this being the first action to respond to the demands of the neighbors, who have expressed their concern about the state of abandonment of the space. The request seeks to obtain the necessary authorization to take a crucial step towards the renovation and adaptation of the old Villaverde school, which is currently in obvious conditions of abandonment.

The mayor of La Oliva, Isaí Blanco, has made a public and urgent call to the Ministry of Education to prioritize the file and give the go-ahead to the disaffection of the school. In his statements, the mayor said: "It is essential that the Ministry of Education provides its collaboration as a priority in this matter. The residents of Villaverde, and the municipality of La Oliva, deserve to enjoy a renovated and multipurpose space that meets their needs".

The Councilor for Education stressed the importance of continuing to press for disaffection: "We have been managing this request since October last year, and it is crucial that the ministry responds favorably. We have made the request again this February 2024 and we will continue to do so as many times as necessary to remember that this is a priority for the municipality of La Oliva".

In the images shared by the City Council, the state of abandonment of the school is clearly evident, underlining the urgency of the action. It is expected that the Ministry of Education will act quickly to allow the necessary improvements and turn the old Villaverde school into a useful and beneficial space for the community.

In relation to the recent visit made yesterday, February 20, by the councillor Poli Suárez to some educational centres in the municipality of La Oliva, Mayor Isaí Blanco expressed his disappointment: "It is a shame that the councillor makes a visit without giving sufficient notice to the municipal institution. This makes it difficult for us to directly express the needs of the City Council to address the shortcomings in municipal schools." The mayor hopes that the councillor's request to FECAM about the financing by the Government of the Canary Islands towards the municipalities will be effective, thus contributing to the maintenance of local educational infrastructures.
