Music students at the Castella Conservatory are receiving their classes in the dining room, warehouses, and offices, since two pavilions of classrooms and the rehearsal hall were closed in 2017 due to a landslide.
Parents complain that for two years, their kids have been in shared cramped spaces. They might have a piano lesson in the same space another student is practicing guitar, for example.
The Ministry of Public Education assigned them portable classrooms temporarily but they have yet to be delivered because of delays due to the dismissal of several members of the board. ¢76 million was deposited last June for these classrooms.
For a more permanent solution, 25 land offers for building the new conservatory are being reviewed. It is expected that the land purchase team will make a recommendation this September.
