Council Executive meeting this morning held out in Balerno, at Balerno High School ... the main agenda for the meeting can be found by clicking here.
Meeting wasn't an Education Executive, but given our presence in a secondary school, educational issues were inevitably discussed!
Main presentation from the school - from students, who put there case across excellently - concerned the lack of an all-weather pitch at the High School.
The Council does have a goal of achieving such a pitch at every secondary - and has made enormous progress in this regard in recent years - but Balerno High is one of the gaps. The student's presentation has thus led to a call for an up-to-date report on a timescale for 'filling' the remaining gaps across the city.
