Initial designs to transform the education of children and young people with additional support needs in Girvan are being put to the public as part of a consultation from South Ayrshire Council.

The designs for Invergarven School will be put on public display on 9 March.

Earlier this year the council appointed consultants JM Architects to design the new £3.6 million facility. The new school, which will be built in the grounds of Girvan Academy, will deliver spaces for learning and teaching including a sensory room, life skills kitchen, multi-use hall, hydrotherapy pool and external areas that support outdoor learning.

Councillor Margaret Toner, Lifelong Learning Portfolio Holder, South Ayrshire Council, said, “We’re committed to meeting the needs of all our young people and this new development will help to transform the lives of pupils with additional support needs.

“Teachers already provide a first-class education and the new Invergarven School will provide children and young people with a fresh environment that’s been specially designed to encourage meaningful learning.

“I would encourage people in Girvan to come down and let us know their views, with their feedback playing an important role in shaping this valuable project.”

The designs will be put on public display in the dining hall of Girvan Academy on Wednesday 9th March 2016 between 3pm and 7pm for children and young people, staff, parents and the community to view and comment on. The Architects and representatives from South Ayrshire Council will be on hand to answer questions.
