foto 2021 manteniment escoles AThe Formentera Offices of Education and Island Services are pleased to report that, based on requests from school administrative teams, parents' associations and student councils, assorted upkeep has been completed in local schools ahead of the return to classrooms this September. In recent weeks the Formentera Office of Island Services maintenance brigade has helped teachers and administrators at the Sant Ferran school and Escoleta des Camí Vell relocate to new buildings, and a cleaning company was brought in this summer to get everything ready for the start of the school year.

See below for an overview of operations:

CEIP Sant Ferran
New storage units were added to the primary school playground and a pergola was put up in the infant playground. The infant playground features material repurposed from the previous setup, and crews assisted with the move.

CEIP Mestre Lluís Andreu
Crews cleaned; applied fresh coats of paint to the school’s façade and exterior enclosure wall; trimmed vegetation; replaced tiles; performed upkeep on outside railings and outdoor port-a-potty; did light repairs on a goal-post and basketball hoop in the upper playground; repaired and repositioned outdoor lighting installations.

CEIP El Pilar de la Mola
In La Mola, crews touched up paint indoors and out; checked and repaired segments of fencing; cleaned and performed prep work in the garden; painted the P.E. shed and replaced separation ropes in the outdoor courtyard. Additional plans are in place to replace sink taps in infant restrooms.

Escoleta Sa Miranda
At Sa Miranda, classrooms and corridors have been painted, mosquito nets and awnings replaced and wooden fences around playgrounds repaired.

26 July–15 September, new hours at ITV

The Formentera Department of Inspection Services reports that from Monday 26 July until 15 September the island’s roadworthiness test site (Inspección Técnica de Vehículos, ITV) will open Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 2.30pm and will close Thursday afternoons. The morning timetable has been extended by half an hour from 2.00pm to accommodate all the weekly appointments. Staff estimate the change will mean they can offer 30 additional appointments per week. Opening Thursday afternoons allowed the service to accommodate just 18 additional appointments.

An overabundance of slots still available this July meant motorists with August appointments were contacted via SMS in case they wished to move them forward. Appointments for roadworthiness tests can be made by calling 971 32 31 30 or emailing itv@conselldeformentera.cat.

The Formentera ITV closed out 2020 with a waiting list of zero and nearly 6,000 vehicles inspected.
