The hall of events of the Sacred Hearts of Redován CEIP hosted last Friday the awards ceremony of the I Visual poetry school competition held in the municipality. A contest in which children from all classes of fifth grade of the school have participated. These students have had the opportunity to get to know this kind of poetry a little over a month ago thanks to the Caligrama 2000 Project, a successful and renowned visual poetry workshop developed by the Vigo poet and pedagogue David Fernández Rivera and promoted by Nely Ruiz from the Department of Education of the Municipality.
The contest, organized by the City Council of Redován and promoted by the poet himself as a result of the enthusiasm of the students after living the experience of the workshop in the classrooms, has been carried out with the wish that the children of the Sacred Hearts CEIP can develop different skills such as imagination, the search for communication, the development of the many skills required to build a visual poem, as well as to solidify everything learned with David Fernández Rivera in the Caligrama 2000 Project.
Thanks to this initiative the children have become autonomous creators of their own visual poems and have been able to share their new concerns with the poet who, as president of the jury, and accompanied by the mayor of Redován, Emilio M. Fernández, as well as by the Councilor for Culture, Clara Ezcurra, presented the contest prizes. Specifically medals and diplomas were awarded to the three best poems and diplomas to seven finalists. In addition, the winner has received a trophy that reproduces an original work by Rivera himself.
The award-winning poems, as explained by the jury, which was also part of the cultural promoter and writer from Oriolan Javier Catalan, have stood out for the application of the visual techniques worked in the workshop, for creativity and for its communicative effectiveness. The children received their prizes full of enthusiasm and desire to continue learning and working with David Fernández Rivera from this new poetic perspective.
Also, before the act began, the mayor of Redován and the councilor of culture received the poet in the Consistory, where he signed in the Book of Honor in recognition of his cultural contribution to the municipality; In addition, he received from the hands of Emilio Fernández a reproduction of the sculpture of the Griffon of Redován, undoubtedly one of the most representative symbols of the town, and that Rivera thanked with some emotional words.

Redován 24/7/2018. The plenary session of the City Council of Redován gave yesterday the approval, unanimously of all the municipal groups, to the technical memories that have been prepared from the Consistory to execute the extension of the IES Jaime de Sant-Ángel and the adequacy of the CEIP Sacred Hearts. Both works will be included in the Edificant Plan of the Ministry of Education, once the regional administration accepts the projects presented by the Consistory, and the forecast is that they can begin to run early next year and end in the first half of 2021. The amount of both actions amounts to 3.7 million euros, so “once the reports are accepted by the Ministry will begin in the first place to bid for the works and then to run,” explained the Councilor for Education Nely Ruiz. The mayor has indicated that the term runs from 2019 to 2021 “because we want to complete the projects of needs that we have raised for both schools.”
The Plan Edificant supposes that the Ministry of Education contributes the necessary funds and that, to expedite the procedures, the city councils are in charge of the execution. “What can not happen is that the money is lost, so we have planned a multi-year investment so that there is time to do everything you want to do within this plan of the Generalitat,” said Ruiz. The mayor recalled that Redován has been asking for the expansion of the IES for a decade and that the Sacred Hearts school also needs an important adaptation of its facilities, especially in relation to accessibility “and we do not want the issue of deadlines they can be halfway “.
Expansion of the IES
As for the Secondary Education Center, the work involves the creation of a classroom that ends the current space problems, which require students and teachers to occupy practically all the spaces of the IES Jaime de Sant-Ángel building. The report is based on an execution project that was drafted by the Ministry of Education in 2009 but which was never implemented. After adapting to current regulations, it will mean the creation of four high school classrooms with the necessary space for teachers and two for Secondary Education, in addition to another smaller classroom and one computer room. The extension is prepared to accommodate 140 high school students and 60 ESO students in a ground floor and two-storey building that will have a constructed area of 1,369 square meters. The planned budget is 2,072,263.85 euros.
With respect to the Sacred Hearts School, it is expected to update the so-called gray pavilion, raised in the 60s of the last century, and then the red one, from the 90s, charged to the Edificant Plan. Thus, in the oldest area action will be taken to improve accessibility, sanitation and evacuation, in an intervention that will cover the 1,110 square meters of built surface, with an auxiliary construction for the staircase and the elevator. In addition to the replacement of shutters and carpentry, the main action will be the demolition of the existing staircase and four bathrooms that will be completely reformed, given that by expanding the staircase area will be built six units of 22 square meters that will serve the twelve classrooms of the building.
Also to improve the accessibility and safety of teachers and students the building will be equipped with an elevator, and will be outside the building where a metal structure with double staircase and aisles distributors.
In the second of the buildings it is planned to undertake the replacement of the blinds, rehabilitation of the outer access pergola to eliminate leaks and repair different areas of the facade among other things. Also in the yard is the installation of accessible children’s games and will end with one of the demands of fathers and mothers when summer arrives, providing air conditioning this area of the school center that still did not have it, which in turn will entail works of reinforcement of the electrical installation.
In the case of the Sacred Hearts CEIP the total budget amounts to 1,770,850.30 euros and the same as the IES is expected to run in the next three years, with the intention that it can be all finished in the first half of 2021. Meanwhile prefabricated classrooms will be installed to guarantee the operation of the center and the safety of those who work and study in it.
