East Antrim Alliance MLA, Stewart Dickson, was delighted to attend the sod-cutting event at Corran Integrated Primary School.
Mr Dickson said: “The event marked the beginning of construction at the site of the new school at Seacourt Road, Larne. It was exciting to see the beginning of the long-awaited school.
“This year also marks Corran Intergrated Primary School’s 25th birthday. The celebratory atmosphere amongst teachers and pupils was palpable – but perhaps that was because the school will break for summer this week!”
