Cromarty primary to reopen on Thursday
Cromarty Primary, which has been closed since Friday due to flooding caused by a burst pipe, is due to re-open to pupils on Thursday morning.
Following the leak, which was discovered when the school was opened early on Friday morning, an assessment of the damage and interim remedial repairs have been carried out and work to get the building ready is near completion.
Following a meeting held earlier today to review progress, it is intended that the school reopens to pupils on Thursday.
On Friday the Director of Care and Learning Bill Alexander thanked staff and parents for their quick response and huge effort in helping to keep damages caused by the flood water to a minimum. Today he added his thanks to council staff, teachers and contractors who were working at the school over the weekend and the last two days.
He said: “We apologise for the disruption caused but thanks to the hard work of everyone involved, we will be able to re-open the school on Thursday.”
