Have your say on new school design

An outline design for a new primary school in Kirkintilloch is being unveiled – and you can have your say on the new 
development.

The design has been created 
after recent workshops with 
pupils, parents, school staff and community representatives, says East Dunbartonshire Council.

Anyone who would like to give their views on the new 
development is invited to attend a drop-in community information event to view the draft proposals, find out more and have a say.

The drop-in event runs from 2pm-8pm on Tuesday, 
May 19, in Hillhead Community Centre in Meiklehill Road.

According to the council, architects for the new school, Archial Norr, will be at the event with plans and 
drawings. They will also be able to provide information and 
answer any questions.

Those who attend the event will have an opportunity to record their comments.

Council leader, Rhondda Geekie hopes many 
local people will go along.

She said, “This community event marks another step forward in our Primary School Improvement Programme and I’m delighted that we 
have reached this stage in Kirkintilloch.

“Elsewhere in the town we have just opened the wonderful new Lairdsland Primary School, which is providing the national reference design for all our new schools.

“It is a wonderfully 
flexible space that gives pupils and teachers a first rate place to work and learn.

“We want to create something similar for this next school, but with input from those who are going to use it.

“This community event is an early opportunity to see what progress has been made so far in shaping the new school and it is your chance to have your say.

“I would ask everyone with an interest to attend.”

The new school is to be built on the site of the existing St Flannan’s Primary School following its closure and the closure of nearby St. Agatha’s Primary.”
