Primary school to have official opening following extensive refurbishment
The official opening of the new Strathyre Primary School will take place later this afternoon.
The near £2 million project was hit by delays, with students eventually moving in months behind schedule.
Pupils and staff had to travel nearly 20 miles to McLaren High, while the refurbishments were taking place.
Work began on the school in September 2017.
Susan McGill, convener of Stirling Council’s children and young people committee, said, “This long-term project will deliver extensive refurbishments and improvements which will make the school a modern and fulfilling environment to learn in and provide the community with a fantastic facility”
Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford welcomed the opening this week, by submitting a motion to the Scottish Parliament.
Mr Crawford commented, “This £2 million project has resulted in a larger and more modern education facility for young people.
“Primary school years are a crucial time in a child’s learning journey and I know that this refurbishment will be welcomed by the community.
“I’m also grateful to staff and pupils at McLaren High School for making people from Strathyre welcome whilst these works took place.”
