Elgin’s new primary school is to be called Linkwood Primary.
The suggestion – supported by parents and Elgin Community Council – was approved by Moray Council’s children and young people’s services committee today.
The school will welcome its first pupils in August in temporary premises at the East End Primary School annexe in Elgin.
A permanent site for the school has been earmarked at Linkwood on the south-eastern outskirts of Elgin where it is due to be ready for occupation in August 2018.
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.
