    I’d like to know what you think is important. There’s been a lot of new schools built recently, either brand new ones like Heathhall Primary and Lockerbie Academy or new for old like Kirkcudbright, Cargenbridge and St Andrew’s Primary in Dumfries. I take it you’re more interested in secondaries. It’s always more expensive to do things to secondaries so that’s why we’re not going to able to afford to rebuild any secondaries for now. Lockerbie was a disaster and needed replaced. Some parts of it made people feel ill if they were there for any length of time- headaches, etc. (not just boring teachers, the teachers would feel ill too). So we can only afford at the moment to do smaller things. What do you think is important?

    i think there should be a budget, but more money should be spent.
