Robert Smillie receives a £1,100 boost ahead of new school year

Robert Smillie Memorial Primary School has been given a boost thanks to Morgan Sindall.

As part of South Lanarkshire Council’s £850 million Primary Schools Modernisation Programme Morgan Sindall has created a state-of-the-art school on the site of the existing building – just in time for the new school year due to start this month.  And, as part of their time on site, the project team led by project manager Ally Wells and supplier Alexander Douglas from South Lanarkshire Building Supplies in Larkhall, has donated £1,100 to the school so that they can buy a new aquarium to be displayed in the reception area.

“We had a great time working at Robert Smillie as everyone from the staff to the pupils took a keen interest in the work from the moment we arrived on site,” says Ally.  “When we knew the school wanted the aquarium we jumped at the chance to help as we’re always keen to build great relationships with our clients – even after the work is done.  We hope the children and staff will enjoy their fantastic new school when they return after the summer break.”

Strathclyde Police also worked to raise funds to help with the price of the aquarium and the Nethan Valley Angling Association donated a new lifecycles incubator to the school also.
