New school for Craigmillar

Details of a new High School for Craigmillar announced today - see the local press coverage here.

Clearly, given the gestation of this whole idea, I generally welcome this development - but it does underline the madness of even considering the 'earlier' closure of Castlebrae Community High School back in August of this year.

Even in July the new school was being seen as a 'replacement' for Castlebrae Community High School, yet by August Castlebrae was to be shut regardless?

As we all know, those plans were thankfully abandoned in mid-September

Now ... new Craigmillar High School seems on track for 2011 and hopefully Castlebrae will be safely open until at least then?

Talk about 'clarity of purpose' ??
