Councillor Sam Love attended a recent meeting of Netherton Primary School’s Parent Council.

The councillor and Motherwell and Wishaw MSP John Pentland both supported the council last term when they looked at ways to improve the learning and teaching space at the school.

This term they have been able to do that thanks to annexes received from North Lanarkshire Council’s learning and leisure services. The annexes belonged to Cathedral Primary School’s old campus on Park Street.

A spokeswoman for the council said: “This additional space has particularly enhanced the school’s ability to timetable PE and provided better teaching spaces for pupils’ receiving extra support.

“In addition improved storage space and a less congested teaching area has improved safety for all building users and shortened the ‘get out’ time in recent fire drills.

“The Parent Council wish to express their thanks to both Mr Pentland and Councillor Love, and look forward to their continued partnership with all local representatives of the Netherton community.”
