Lottery cash funds school improvement

Pupils at a Bearsden Primary School are seeing the results of a lottery windfall after returning to classes following the summer break.

Following a successful bid to Awards for All and a great deal of successful fundraising by the PTA, Killermont Primary School and Nursery has benefited from a number of improvements.

The youngest children in the nursery have a new woodland tower, while the p1s and p2s are enjoying voyages on a newly created pirate ship.

Meanwhile, older children are having a great time on their parkour installation.

The final addition is a wooden stage and seating theatre in the playground, where the children have been entertaining each other with singing and dancing.

The whole project has cost £17,500, with £9,900 from Awards From All, and the remainder raised at a series of PTA events.

Head teacher Elspeth Smith said: “We are very grateful to both Awards for All and the PTA for their funding of this project and for all the members of the PTA and Parent Council who have worked with the school to provide the children with better play opportunities and encourage them to be active at playtimes.”
