St Agatha’s and St Flannan’s primaries in Kirkintilloch, closed their doors for the last time, with pupils set to move to a new merged school after the Easter holidays.

Holy Trinity Primary has been built on the former St Flannan’s site at a cost of £8million.

Both schools held a number of events to celebrate the closures, including a balloon release at St Agatha’s and a fun day at St Flannan’s.

Meanwhile events were held in Bishopbriggs to mark the final days of Woodhill Primary and Auchinairn Primary, with pupils moving to the new Thomas Muir Primary after the break.

Our photographer was at the schools to catch all the fun. Click above to see some of the photos from the last days of the two Kirkintilloch schools.

More photos from all four schools are coming soon!
