A week on social media
There were words of encouragement for James Aiton Primary on our social media pages this week after we revealed they had been nominated for a prestigious award:
“Brilliant news for our school. A lot of hard work has been put in by the head teacher and staff.“- -Elsa Morton
“My girl has been selected to attend this with a P7. She is chuffed.”- Danielle D’Arcy
“Massive congratulations to head teacher Kerry McGhee, pupils and staff on your fabulous achievement.” - CM Carmichael
“Well done to all the staff and pupils. I’ve heard how hard you are working and enjoying this project.” Maryjane Shaw
People were also quick to react to our story about a break-in at Cathkin Primary.
“People like that should be strung up. Why a primary school? Also, it should matter what your age is when you know what you are doing.” - Alasdair Wood
“The school I work in has been vandalised and set on fire. Mindless.”- Claire Farrell
“Disgraceful, I hope they get them, but it will be the usual a slap on the wrist.” Margaret Brown
“Park View a few weeks ago too. Why do these people target schools”- Barbara Anne, Dennistoun
Finally, there was support for our story about residents in Cambuslang having to pay more for bus tickets than residents in other parts of South Lanarkshire.
“It’s not just the whole fare system, it’s the bus company that’s a joke. It’s about time the Scottish Government looked into this company and maybe give some more routes to other companies.” -William Bell
“Totally agree William, I’ve never met so many abusive drivers in all my days. They are a disgrace. We are not all nasty to the drivers. I’ve seen elderly people being spoken to like rubbish.”- Miranda
