Parents and pupils from Eriskay School showed their opposition to any plans to close their school when they staged a mini protest yesterday.

The community are angry that Comhairle nan Eilean Siar may still consider having a ‘conversation’ regarding the future of the island school in light of the Scottish Government’s proposed moratorium on the closure of rural schools.
