Due to the death of Councillor Wardhuagh, who was a great supporter of West Mains School, there will be a By- election on Thursday 29 August 2019.
The Election Office has advised that West Mains School will be used as a Polling Station on Thursday 29 August 2019 which means that the school will be closed on this day to pupils.
The school will open as normal on Friday, 30 August 2019.
Mr McDaid apologises for any inconvenience this may cause but as you are probably aware public buildings and some schools are used as Polling Stations during elections
Mr McDaid's letter is attached.
