The primary school De Spreeuwen currently has around 530 pupils. The present buildings are too small and therefore a new building of around 1000 sq. m. is planned.
The school is housed on a site which extends between Battelsesteenweg and the Auwegemvaart. The school currently has 2905 sq. m. of buildings on an area of 10,700 sq.
m. This means the site is already well filled with buildings. With a view to expansion, land has consequently been purchased along the Auwegemvaart, adjoining the site on the left. It is the intention to construct a new building of around 1000 sq. m. on the newly-purchased land. The temporary outbuildings on the site would be demolished in due course.
In view of the complex nature of the buildings on the site, the new expansion must be based on a long-term vision for the whole school environment
