A £1.5 million extension and refurbishment project at Fraserburgh Academy is progressing well and could be completed within months.
Bancon Construction was appointed to carry out the scheme, which will has kick-started big changes for the school.
Under the project, which began at the end of last year, Fraserburgh Academy classrooms are being given a general refurbishment including the installation of powered internal doors.
The support for learning area, PE staff room, music class, conference room and the main staff room are all to be revamped.
The art department will also be given a face-lift with the classes and store being refurbished, and a stair lift installed.
A new drama studio will also be built as an extension to the building.
Fraserburgh and District councillor, Charles Buchan, last night provided an update on the scheme’s progress.
He said: “The workmen have been very good – the teachers are very pleased at the way they have been co-operating in terms of noise and desisting on doing certain things during exam and prelim time.
“The school wanted to avoid the disruption that comes with some construction work so since it started, near the end of last year, it has been going well.
“I’ve only seen the completed parts but it looks very good so far and, if I remember rightly, it could be completed around May time.”
