Go ahead for Gaelic nursery annexe
Work has started on a new £2.1M annexe adjacent to Bun-sgoil Ghàidhlig Inbhir Nis, the Highland Council’s Gaelic Primary School in Inverness.
The building will consist of two nursery classrooms, two Primary 1 classrooms, a production kitchen and a dining area. This will address the capacity pressures at the school and the increase in Early Learning and Childcare provision for 3 and 4 year-olds that has to be implemented from August 2020.
Chair of the Care, Learning and Housing Committee, Cllr John Finlayson said: “I am delighted with the news that work has started on this project which again shows the commitment the Council has to delivering school projects right across Highland. I am sure the nursery children, pupils, parents, staff and the wider community will be delighted with this positive news.”
The Highland Council has awarded the contract to Morgan Sindall and the building is due to be operational by January 2020. The project is being managed by the Council’s Development & Infrastructure Property Service.
