The infant school La Paz in Bigastro was built 21 years ago and in all that time nobody has noticed that the vents to circulate air under the floor are in fact false. This issue only came to light whilst technicians were investigating problems with the heating. Without these vents, condensation can build up under the floor and weaken it. Luckily, the floor at La Paz is still sound but still needs those ventilation grids to keep it dry.
To add to this, there is also a problem with the electrical wiring. Teachers say that the electrical panel smokes and sparks come from sockets when you plug anything in to them. The problem is caused by the old wiring which cannot cope with the increasing demand placed on it.
Unfortunately, the 10,000 euros cost of all this work will have to be met by the town council but that does include putting a roof on the pergola to replace the trees that currently provide shade.
