School of the Future

SECONDARY SCHOOL PUPILS in Stranraer will have a 'school of the future' by 2008, top council officials pledged this week.

And every primary school in Wigtownshire will be refurbished, or part-rebuilt to bring them into line with modern educational requirements.

The promises were made by a council delegation on the eve of a meeting of the Schools' Public/Private Partnership sub-committee where it is expected that a revised business case for the £100 million schools project will be agreed.

Council convener and vice-chairman of the sub-committee Andrew Campbell confirmed that the £8 million Phase Two development of the region's largest secondary school, Stranraer Academy, is at the top of the priority list.

That means the 'eyesore' A Block will be torn down along with the out-dated B and C Blocks at the Academy and they will be replaced with a modern building equipped with essential facilities.

"Stranraer Academy is one of six priorities and will definitely go ahead now that we have discovered there is enough money to do the whole build,"said Mr Campbell.
