Stranraer Academy Phase 2 Doubt

COUNCIL Director of Education and Community Services, Fraser Sanderson could not "say with any confidence," that Stranraer Academy's phase two will start on July 4th as originally planned, councillors heard last week.

At last Wednesday's Wigtown West Area Committee meeting in Stranraer, Councillor Grahame Forster told fellow committee members that an e-mail he received from Mr Sanderson in December confirmed this. The message from Mr Sanderson read:

"While we still have July set as the proposed start date, if you pushed me into a corner on this I could not say with any confidence that we would see movement by then."

Further to this, Mr Sanderson also seemed to indicate that, of all the schools PPP projects in the pipeline within the region, highlighting Lockerbie Academy and Lockerbie Primary schools in particular, Stranraer Academy was not the number one priority. The e-mail message to Mr Forster stated:

"With regard to the question about the level of priority to be attached to Lockerbie Academy and Stranraer Academy, I would have to say that absolute priority should rest with Lockerbie Primary School."
