From Shetland News :-

EDUCATION officials are recommending that four rural primary schools in Shetland close, saying it will save the authority more than £250,000 a year and safeguard the rest of the service. **********************************

 

These are supposedly " educated " people making these decisions for implementing this madness. The transport operators must be rubbing their hands with anticipation.

As a measure of the level of care and forethought that is going into this cost cutting era, the Scalloway secondary bairns were recently shown around their new home at the AHS, and while the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, there was more than a little despondency when the bairns were shown the "new social areas", which were, realistically, portacabins with benches.

When I first went to school, children were beaten with straps or canes for errant behaviour. Times, and standards, have changed. :wink:

 

The point I was making was, of course, that Scalloway's communal areas were bright modern functional parts of the main building, not an afterthought.

Yes indeed and did it do us any harm?. Well possibly and it is good that it does not happen any more. Meanwhile would it be fair to say that most parts of the AHS are an afterthought and adding the Scalloway pupils to the school ahead of the new build is a complete nonsense. I believe that this is something the new Scottish Government (even if it is the old one with some new faces) should look at again as a matter of urgency. And maybe something our own councillors ought to reconsider at their next meeting.
