New Sacred Heart Primary School Opens to Pupils
The new Sacred Heart Primary School in Girvan officially opened its doors to pupils this week, following almost two years of construction work to transform the facility.
The new two-storey school, which can accommodate up to 125 pupils, features interactive learning areas; a nurture room; a general-purpose room; and a multi-use dining and PE hall.
Pupils who enjoy the outdoors will also benefit from the new sensory garden; a traversing wall; active play areas; teaching, dining and social spaces; and an enclosed games area for ball sports.
An official opening event for the school, which was delivered in partnership with hub South West Scotland and main contractor Morrison Construction, will take place later this year.
Councillor Stephen Ferry, South Ayrshire Council's Portfolio Holder for Education said: "I'm delighted that Sacred Heart Primary School pupils have been able to set foot into their new school. I know they've been keeping a close eye on the progress of the build over the last two years, and they can finally see and experience the first-class facilities that the new building provides.
"The new facility builds on our already outstanding school estate in South Ayrshire, and reinforces our commitment to ensuring children and young people have the best start in life."
