The Oban Times - - NEWS -

PAR­ENTS and Coun­cil­lor Ben Thom­son have met with Highland Coun­cil of­fi­cials af­ter a de­ci­sion on clus­ter man­age­ment in the Mal­laig Area School Group was post­poned.

Coun­cil­lor Thom­son said it was ‘good to hear the di­rec­tor of ed­u­ca­tion ad­mit it is a unique schools group and that more time will be spent con­sid­er­ing it’.

He also said the di­rec­tor seemed to re­alise the need for care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion over the lo­gis­tics of a Small Isles clus­ter and that a Mal­laig main­land clus­ter would need an ex­tra deputy head teacher.

He added: ‘It was good to hear of­fi­cials are propos­ing to in­crease spend­ing on Mal­laig schools.’
