The Sagrados Corazones School and the Redován Town Council involve citizens in a ‘special mission’ of RedovánpolisGo! on the occasion of 8M

On this occasion, the school’s project seeks to instil in the school community four of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals related to equality and education.

Redován 28/1/2022. RedovánpolisGo! The sustainable village is the project that has been launched this year by the Sagrados Corazones School in Redován and which has the support of the Town Council. This project, aimed at instilling in the educational community the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, has launched a ‘special mission’ on the occasion of the celebration, on March 8, of International Women’s Day and which seeks the involvement not only of students and their families, but of all citizens of Redován.

The ‘Special Mission 8M’ aims to meet four of the SDGs, those relating to quality education, gender equality, reduction of inequalities and partnerships for the goals. Rubén Ferrer, coordinator of the Agenda 2030 commission, explains that participating is very easy, “you just have to create a poster on real equality between men and women”. The aim is to get as many posters as possible expressing the feelings of women we admire, whether they are from our families, friends, colleagues at school or work, or celebrities. The idea is for each participant to contribute their opinion on inequalities, how we should treat each other and, above all, that no one is more than anyone else, as the new mission states. In addition, on this occasion, the Redován Secondary School is also taking part.

Marisol Ibáñez, from the Department of Social Services, explains that the Town Council usually participates in this initiative through other departments more related to environmental protection or the promotion of sustainable practices such as recycling, “but we are really excited to also collaborate from Social Services in a mission in which we seek the participation of groups and people of our municipality in general”. To this end, from the Consistory “we are going to publicise the mission through our communication channels, sharing this initiative on our social networks as well as collecting the work in the Town Hall”.

With a view to the 8M events, the councillor specified that the possibility of exhibiting the posters is also being considered. The works can be submitted in A4 size with the name and contact number on the back. Teachers, children, families and grandmothers from the Mancomunidad La Vega will hand in their posters at the school, and anyone else who would like to participate can leave them at the Town Hall. The deadline for submitting entries is 11 February.

Green light for the start of extension work on the Jaime de Sant Angel Secondary School in Redován

The extension of the IES Jaime de Sant Àngel de Redován will get underway in the next few days, once the act of reconsideration for the start of the works has been signed. The signing was attended by the mayoress of Redován, Nely Ruiz, the councillors José Nájar and Ramón López, technicians from the Town Hall, representatives of the construction company Orthem and the technical management of the work.

Among the agreements adopted in the meetings prior to the start of the works, the Calle Doctor Marañón will be closed to traffic for the duration of the works. The town planning councillor, José Nájar, has indicated that this decision has been taken “as a safety measure and with the aim of disrupting as little as possible the daily work of the school, which will of course continue as usual while the works are being carried out”. The building project, which is included in the Edificant Plan, involves the creation of four classrooms for Bachillerato and two for Secondary, space for teachers, another smaller classroom and a space for computer classes. The IES will have a new building with a ground floor and two storeys, with a floor area of 1,369 square metres. The company awarded the contract will carry out the work for 1.6 million euros plus VAT.

Redován Town Council to refurbish the old municipal gymnasium to house training classrooms

The old premises of the municipal gymnasium in Redován will reopen in the coming months, once the planned refurbishment work has been completed, to become a training centre. This was announced by the mayoress of Redován, Nely Ruiz, who recalled that, “although we had initially planned to reopen it as a gymnasium, we believe that at the moment the needs of our municipality are different and that is why we are going to create a space for approved classrooms that can host employment workshops and allow training in various trades for the unemployed in our municipality”. Ruiz considered that, at present, Redován has “a range of gyms that we consider to be good, as well as municipal sports facilities that also meet our needs and an indoor pavilion in the pipeline, while we do not have spaces for training, which means that people who want to take certain courses have to leave the town to do them”.

In this regard, the mayoress assured that “we have already contacted Convega, a consortium with which we already carry out actions of this type, and their technicians have seen the facilities and evaluated their suitability for them to be approved as training classrooms”. Nely Ruiz made this announcement in an appearance in which she was accompanied by the Councillor for Education, Marisol Ibáñez, and the Councillor for Employment, Maite Martínez, given that, initially, once the space has been fitted out, the facilities will be used to accommodate the students of the Sagrados Corazones School who will have to leave the centre during the refurbishment work that will begin in the coming months. The mayoress of Redován has assured that this option has been chosen “in order to speed up the works of the Plan Edificant, because if we have to request prefabricated classrooms the works would take longer. The councillor for Education, Marisol Ibáñez, recalled that the basic and execution project for the Sagrados Corazones School passed through the plenary last week and is currently in the public exhibition period, after which the tender will be launched. “We hope to be able to start work as soon as possible on a project that will improve the accessibility and health of the school,” said the councillor, who pointed out that “a new staircase and lift will be added to the grey pavilion to guarantee accessibility for all pupils and the bathrooms will be completely refurbished, with a total of six units to be built in the space left by the old staircase”. This will make up the bulk of the work, which includes the replacement of blinds and carpentry in both the grey and red pavilions. “In the red pavilion, the exterior access pergola will also be refurbished, different areas of the façade will be repaired and the shutters will be changed, among other things,” Ibáñez commented. This work on 1,110 square metres of surface area “will adapt the centre to the needs of the Redovan educational community”.

For her part, the councillor for Employment, Maite Martínez, has defended the need that, once the work on the school and also on the secondary school has been completed, the start of which is imminent in the latter case, “Redován will have a space in which to train people who leave secondary school and do not want to go to a training course or university, or simply people who due to circumstances did not receive training before and who now, at an older age, want to learn a profession and can do so without leaving our town”. For this reason, he emphasised that “we are going to work hand in hand with Convega so that Redován can become one of the many places for courses offered by the consortium, as up until now we have hosted some, but far fewer than we would like”. Martínez pointed out that the procedure for the approval and accreditation of collaborating centres is carried out on the basis of an order from the Regional Ministry of Economy, Industry, Tourism and Employment which regulates the procedure for the accreditation of facilities, as long as the minimum requirements of space, facilities and equipment established for all the training modules of the certificates of professionalism are met. To conclude, the mayoress said that she hopes to have the project for the adaptation of the facilities ready as soon as possible “and to recover a public space that had been closed for several years to use it for the benefit of the citizens of Redovan”.

Other improvements will include the replacement of blinds and carpentry, the elimination of leaks in the exterior pergola and the repair of areas of the façade, as well as the installation of accessible playground equipment in the courtyard. The works will be completed with the air conditioning of the red pavilion building, “to avoid the high temperatures that occur inside the classrooms during the summer months,” said the councillor.
