Early holidays for pupils

PUPILS in Girvan got an early start to the Christmas holidays.

Girvan Primary school and Girvan Nursery were forced to send pupils home at around lunchtime on Tuesday, December 20 after a boiler breakdown.

The school then stayed closed to allow repairs to the boiler to be made.

A spokeswoman for South Ayrshire Council said: “Girvan Primary School was closed on the afternoon of Tuesday December 20 due to the school’s heating system requiring some unexpected repairs.”
