New Bonnyrigg school takes shape

MIDLOTHIAN schoolchildren donned hard hats to view progress on the building of their new school.

P6 pupils Lucy, Lauren and Dylan enjoyed an informal lesson in design and construction when they visited the site of the next Hopefield Primary School in Bonnyrigg.

Accompanied by head teacher Candy Inglis, the trio were astonished at the progress made since the sod cutting ceremony in September.

Work on the Burnbrae Road building is scheduled to finish by autumn 2012.
