On Wednesday we officially opened the doors of our Family Room. Colonel Simon Vandeleur, the Garrison Commander in Edinburgh, was one of our many special guests and the honour of cutting the ribbon was his.
The invited guests included members of the parent council as well as representatives from all the places and organisations who contributed to the project and without whom it would not have been possible. Our thanks go to the Royal Caledonian Schools Trust, The City Of Edinburgh Council, The Colinton Parent Council, IKEA Edinburgh, John Lewis Edinburgh, Avril Poole and the Friends of 1 Scots, HIVE, 1 Scots, 3 Rifles, APS Group and Garrison FM for making the project, started last year, a reality. The room is already being well used, a programme of events has been planned for the summer term and a dedicated page to the Family Room on this website will be coming soon. You can hear the Garrison FM coverage of the opening of the Family Room and see inside it below.
