Galashiels councillor Sandy Aitchison, Scottish Borders Council’s executive member for education, said: “We have been making improvements to early-years facilities across the region, with the latest works transforming parts of Knowepark Primary in Selkirk and Wilton Primary in Hawick, making much more appropriate and useable spaces for children and staff.

“A range of improvement works were carried out at a number of schools over the summer, and the feedback from headteachers has been fantastic.

The work, much of it involving our own staff, ranging from architects to school janitorial staff, contributes greatly to improving the learning environment for pupils.”

The work was designed and supervised by the council’s in-house architects, employing principal contractors Murray and Burrell of Galashiels and James Swinton and Co of Hawick.
