A SUPER school in the heart of Kirkintilloch is celebrating four decades of success and support for East Dunbartonshire youngsters.

Merkland School was officially opened 40 years ago – on December 9, 1971 – and it has been holding celebrations to mark the occasion.

This week the Kirkintilloch Herald puts the spotlight on a school which is a place of hope and comfort for many families.
