Come to our drop-in event about a new Danderhall school
Residents in and around Danderhall are invited to a drop-in event on Tuesday 12 December to give their views on replacing the primary school.
The event is to discuss two options
The event, which runs from 14:00 to 20:00 at Danderhall Leisure Centre on Newton Church Road, will give local people the chance to discuss two options.
The first is for community facilities and a school on site
The first option is to have a primary school with community facilities on the site of the existing Danderhall Primary with a new high school at Shawfair town centre.
The second is for a school
The second option is to build a new school only at the site of the existing primary and have a high school at Woolmet.
It's a great opportunity to tell us what you think
Midlothian Council’s cabinet member for education, Cllr Jim Muirhead said: “We want to hear the views of as many people as possible before deciding what option to pursue. It’s a great opportunity to build a facility that meets the needs of the local community."
