A New School for MaryhillGlasgow City Council's SNP Group is consulting on new primary school provision in the Maryhill area of the city. You can take part in the consultation by going to https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/gccsnpmaryhillschool. SNP councillors for the Maryhill/Kelvin ward, John Letford and Franny Scally, have now started their own survey, which they say is to ensure locals' views are taken into consideration. Councillor Letford said: "I am delighted that my Group has decided to launch a consultation on school provision in Maryhill and Kelvin.
"It has been seven years since Labour closed primary school provision in this area. "Our questionnaire is designed to complement the work of Education Services, and to ensure that everyone who wants to has the opportunity to feedback their views on the type and location of educational provision in Maryhill. "I would encourage everyone to get involved and make your voice heard." SNP Councillor Franny Scally said: "We will ensure that as many people in the ward as possible get the chance to respond and we will ensure Education Services hear the clear view of the people of Maryhill and Kelvin."
