What should a new Mull school campus look like, if funding becomes available for one?
The council has been asking for islanders’ views on this question, as a key part of its work to bid for Scottish Government funding for Mull.
The Learning Estate Investment Programme (LEIP) is the Scottish Government’s programme for investment in education.
The council has identified a new school campus on Mull as the priority across its entire learning estate and has put together a bid for LEIP funding for this.
The LEIP does not fully fund projects; if the bid is successful additional funding would have to be secured from other sources. An award of LEIP funding by the Scottish Government however would be a key first step.
If the bid is successful, and if the campus goes ahead, further community consultation will be an important part in progressing this.
A series of pre-engagement sessions were held at Tobermory 2 - 18 school on Thursday 11th August, and at Bunessan Primary School on Wednesday 7th September.
You can view the slides and presentation boards from the pre-engagement sessions here:
