In a few weeks time the bell will ring to welcome pupils around Fife back to school after the long summer holidays.
And for Burntisland Primary School pupils it will be a very exciting day as they enter their brand new school, built by BAM Construction, for the first time.
After more than a year of construction, the keys to the school were handed over on July 3 so the staff could start moving furniture, books and other equipment from the old school in Ferguson Place into the new building at the Toll Park.
Julie Anderson, head teacher at the school and herself a former pupil of Burntisland Primary School, said: “We are all so excited to be going into our new building and we can’t wait for school to start. I think it will be the first summer that the children have actually been desperate to get back to school!
“The building is looking absolutely fabulous and we have visits arranged for all of the children on August 21 and 22 to show them around and get them used to the new school.”
Martin Cooper, construction director for BAM, East of Scotland, added: The project went really well and we are delighted to have been a part of the Building Better Fife (BFF) programme.
“Everyone from the Council and the existing school to the local community played a part and it was good teamwork.”
