(Photograph) - Made up for the part: Culture Minister Mike Watson was the latest bearer of additional funds for schools last week when he announced another pound;1.5 million to extend the cultural co-ordinator programme until 2006. The scheme was launched as a two-year pilot in May and there are now more than 100 co-ordinators in 31 of the 32 authorities (Argyll and Bute has not signed up). Mr Watson, on a visit to Lochend Community School in Glasgow, stressed the importance of the arts and culture to pupils' self-confidence and creativity.
