Work progressing on new Carrongrange school
Work on the replacement for Larbert's Carrongrange School is now well underway as Scottish economy minister Keith Brown saw for himself this morning.
The minister joined Falkirk Council chief executive Mary Pitcaithly, Baillie Joan Paterson and pupis from the existing Carrongrange School on site at the new construction near Moray Primary School in Grangemouth.
Work on the new ASN (assisted learning needs) secondary school, which will reportedly be names Carrongrange High School, began in the summer and is progressing on schedule with construction of the structural steel frame, the floor slabs on the first and ground floor now complete and work on the roof and building envelope now begun.
The school is scheduled to be completed by July next year, ready for the new term in August.
Members of Falkirk Council’s education committee will note the progress made on the building and are expected to confirm the name of the new school at a meeting on Tuesday.
