Progress is being made over the proposed new build at Woodburn Primary School.

Plans were available to view during a public meeting at Woodlands Presbyterian Church on December 16.

The £3m new-build was announced in 2014 as part of a £170m investment by the Department of Education. At present there is only one permanent classroom with the majority of the 190 pupils taught in mobile buildings.

Councillor Andrew Wilson, a member of the board of governors at the rural school, said: “We are looking forward to the new build at the school, and the recent public consultation meeting was yet another step in getting to where we want to be in this process.

“Mrs Rea (acting vice-principal), with the help of others, will continue the preparatory work behind the scenes for the work to happen as smoothly and efficiently as possible, in partnership with the local community.”
