Broomlands Primary School
Kelso - Scottish Borders
The youngest and the oldest pupil marked the official start of work on a new school.
Sophia Berni and Brodie Lawson cut the first sods for the £9.7m Broomlands Primary project in Kelso. Construction work is being carried out by McLaughlin and Harvey and is expected to be completed in 2018.
The school, with a roll of about 250 pupils, will have 12 classrooms, early years centre, new games hall/dining room and upgraded playground. The current Broomlands building has served generations of pupils since it opened in 1980. "After 36 years, it is time for a modern school building to take its place, and I know pupils, parents and staff will be looking forward to moving in once work is completed.
