New Library for Sheuchan Primary School

Pupils at Sheuchan Primary School are a well-read bunch these days.

They are reaping the benefits of their sparkling new library which was officially opened last Thursday evening.

And it is no ordinary library either, as a range of CDs, videos and cassettes – as well as over 1500 books – mean it truly deserves its title of "multi-media library".

The school received a further boost last week with the gift of £300 worth of books from the Parent Teacher Association.

These were presented by Jennifer Miller who served as head teacher at Sheuchan for nine years.

Handing the books over she said
"When I was here, our first priority was to get a roof on the school! The next project was the nursery and then we thought ‘we need a library’.
"There is no greater resource we can give the children than books".

In a further surprise presentation she unveiled a shield which would be donated to the school as an annual prize for languages.

Jennifer Miller praised the present acting head teacher Olive Currie, who had "carried the dream of a library through to reality".
