Canberra Primary School, located in Westwood, East Kilbride closed its’ doors for the last time in the Spring of 2013. After serving the local community for over 50 years time was called on the rather battered and worn building. Built adjacent to it was a shiny new-build, which will carry the name Canberra into the 21st century. The following year the original school was demolished and the land sold for housing.

For my wife Fiona and daughters Heather and Sarah who all attended the school.
