Pupils' songs and smiles
Welcome songs and wide smiles greeted Deputy First Minister John Swinney when he officially opened Bilston (pictured) and Gore Glen Primary Schools last Wednesday.
Mr Swinney joined staff members, council officials and the wider community for the pupils’ performances before unveiling plaques at each of the schools.
He said: “It is fantastic to see students and staff in their new schools. Such state of the art accommodation can inspire students, staff and parents, making a positive difference to learning outcomes as well as the wider community. That is why the Scottish Government is committed to improving Scotland’s school estate.”
