Drop-in session on Elgin schools rezoning

Press release   •   Nov 17, 2015 11:12 GMT

Parents with children attending any of Elgin’s primary schools are being invited to a drop-in session later this month to find out more about new catchment areas approved by Moray councillors.

A wide-ranging consultation was carried out earlier this year on proposals for rezoning the catchment areas to address capacity issues.

The proposals were approved at a full meeting of Moray Council last week, with the new schools zones taking effect from the beginning of the new term in January.

Parents who would like to find out more about the new zones and how they might affect their children will be able to have a chat with education officials at Elgin Community Centre on Thursday, November 26 between 4pm and 6pm.

Director of education and social care Laurence Findlay will be on hand along with the council’s head of lifelong learning, Graham Jarvis, and senior education adviser Paul Watson to answer any questions or concerns that parents might have.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 92,500 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
