Halyrude- from B list to A list!

Children and staff of Halyrude RC Primary School in Peebles walked from their old school at Old Church Road to their new school in the building of the Kingsland Primary School in Rosetta Road in the spring.

The £2.1 million refurbishment project has transformed the Grade B-listed building into a modern, flexible and spacious facility.

The school now boasts six classrooms, general purpose/learning support rooms, new heating/electrical systems, double glazing and disabled access. The school also has provision for integrated children’s services, which provide for children with additional support needs.

Along the way, the procession stopped at the Cross Kirk to remember and highlight the connection that will always exist between the school and the significant religious site.

A ribbon was cut by Chris Forsyth (P5) before pupils and staff entered their school.
