NEW Lanark Primary pupils can look forward to an improved school building as a new school extension was given the green light.

At the recent council planning committee meeting, councillors approved a proposal which will see the demolition of the school extension – built in the 1970s – and the erection of a new extension which will be home to three new classrooms and cloakrooms.

However, the existing Victorian school building will remain, with the gym and dining facilities being incorporated into the building.
