Boom­ing pri­mary ones are pic­ture per­fect pupils

Campbeltown Courier - - PRIMARY ONES - Pho­to­graphs by Han­nah O’Han­lon and Mark Davey edi­tor@camp­bel­town­courier.co.uk

Kin­tyre’s youth pop­u­la­tion is boom­ing, if the num­ber of pri­mary ones start­ing school is any­thing to go by. This year 81 young­sters took their first steps into for­mal ed­u­ca­tion at Castle­hill, Dal­in­to­ber, Car­radale, Southend, Drum­lem­ble, Glen­barr, Clachan and Gigha pri­mary schools on Au­gust 14. Last year, 72 chil­dren started school, and in 2016, there were 62 pri­mary ones. An in­crease of al­most 20 pupils in two years means that the new, £26 mil­lion Camp­bel­town Gram­mar School should be packed with ea­ger learners for years to come. Al­though the young­sters’ pho­to­graphs fea­tured in Wyvex Me­dia’s sou­venir sup­ple­ment a cou­ple of weeks ago, the Courier is proud to pub­lish them as well.
