These pictures show how a new North-east school is shaping up ahead of its opening later this month.
Hillside School in Portlethen was originally due to open last August but Aberdeenshire Council has confirmed it’s on course to finish later this month.
The images show how parts of the primary, including the canteen and playground, are looking ahead of pupils moving in.
The new Hillside School will have capacity for up to 365 youngsters.
It will include 13 classrooms, two GP rooms, a library and a gymnasium – which will provide space for two courts, with changing facilities and retractable seating.
But despite the positivity surrounding its opening, figures released by the local authority revealed the school could burst its capacity by 2019.
The school roll estimates 397 pupils could be enrolled that year and within six years there could be up to 543 pupils at the primary.
Alison Harris, vice chairwoman of the Parent Association of Hillside School, said: “It’s been a long time coming. Now that it’s actually here we’re very excited.
“I was fortunate enough to be able to go up and see the new school. It just looks amazing – once we went in to see it, we just couldn’t wait for it to open.
“There are new facilities which are lot more modern. We’re so lucky to have it.”
The opening of the new school is also hoped to relieve the pressure on Portlethen Primary School and Fishermoss School.
Alison said: “We could see that they couldn’t cope. It was totally overflowing and they had to take up the flack.
“By this new school opening, it will actually benefit all of the primaries.”
She added: “We hope that it will benefit all of the community. Lots of parents would love to see more out-of-hours facilities and these new facilities should make that slightly easier now.”
