Pupils and staff have moved into a new extension at Invergarry Primary School, with a special community open day held to mark the occasion.

Head Teacher, Kim Bentley said: ‘We were delighted to welcome families and friends from our local community to help celebrate the opening of our new extension which has made a huge difference to pupils and staff.’

The extension replaces an old classroom unit and provides two classrooms with toilets and a cloakroom area linked to the former school house.

The house, which had been vacant for some time, has been converted to form an entrance and reception area, office/meeting room and a fully accessible pupil toilet/changing facility.

The total investment was £800,000, which has been funded from The Highland Council’s Capital Programme.

The work was carried out by Morrison Construction and delivered in partnership with the council’s property team in the Development and Infrastructure Service.
