The official opening of a £1million extension and new nursery at a Highland school took place yesterday.
Ullapool Primary School was visited by Highland Council’s area care and learning manager (west), Norma Young, who attended the opening and was joined by contractors Morgan Sindall.
The nursery extension includes two new classrooms, one for English medium with a capacity of 15 and the other for Gaelic medium with a capacity of 13.
There is also a new reception area, a work area for staff and a new staff room. It also features a brand new ASN (Additional Support Needs) room.
Three new outdoor play areas have also been created, which provide a secure outdoor space for the children. There are play parks for each classroom and a shared play park.
There is also a canopy outside to provide cover in inclement weather and a new outdoor lighting so that children can enjoy fresh air even at dusk.
Chairman of the Highland Council Education Committee, Councillor John Finlayson, said: “I am delighted at the opening of this fantastic facility that will support the whole school community in so many different ways.
“I am sure everyone in Ullapool and the surrounding area will also be happy to see the completion of this exciting project and everyone involved should be congratulated on reaching the completion stage.”
