YOUNGSTERS will attend their first day of school with their new teachers and uniforms…despite building work on a new multi-million pound school being incomplete.
Hillside Primary School near Portlethen was scheduled to open in August next year but an issue over the access road could mean the opening is delayed until late 2016.
However, pupils set to attend the school will still start the term wearing Hillside Primary School uniforms and be educated by newly recruited teachers – but they will be temporarily taught in existing schools in the area.
The aim is to make the transition process between schools easier.
Aberdeenshire Council is now expecting work to begin on the new school site later this year.
