Two Newbattle pupils have secured life-changing opportunities with the property and construction consultant, Hardies.

Kirsten O’Connor and Laura Falconer (both 17) will be supported by the firm while they study to be a building and a quantity surveyor respectively.

Kirsten was delighted at winning the place.

She said: “I’ve always liked the design aspect of buildings and I’ve been creative since I was young, so being able to study to be a building surveyor is great.”

Laura is looking forward to being supported through college.

She said: “The fact that we will be working at Hardies means that we’ll get hands-on experience and that will help us with our course work.”
