THERE were angry scenes last night as East Dunbartonshire Council voted to progress controversial school mergers against the wishes of parents.

In front of a packed public gallery, administration councillors voted unanimously to proceed to statutory consultation in May on merging Lenzie and Lenzie Moss primaries on the Lenzie Moss site, and Woodhill and Auchinairn primaries on the Woodhill Primary site in Bishopbriggs.

August will see the start of statutory consultation on the merger of St Agatha’s and St Flannan’s primaries on the St Flannan’s site in Kirkintilloch - as well as the merging of St Joseph’s and St Andrew’s Primary Schools in Bearsden.
