Shopping windfall for schools
The windfall includes Pounds 9 million on reducing the backlog of school repairs, estimated at around Pounds 37 million, while Firrhill High will be renovated at a cost of Pounds 3.3 million.
Councillors have finally given approval for a Pounds 6 million new technology initiative to bring the Internet to all schools and community centres. Senior school managers will be linked by computer in a local network.
Elizabeth Maginnis, education convener, said the city would be "at the cutting edge of new technology developments".
