"Due to the difficult time every council in Scotland is facing various efficiency options. As far as Argyll and Bute Council is concerned no decisions, discussions, meetings or consultations have taken place regarding Tiree High School. As your elected member I can categorically assure you of this.
"The infrastructure of Oban High School and its Hostel could not accommodate the pupils of Tiree High School as you will have read recently in the press. The Oban Hostel has just undergone a major refurbishment which allows them to accommodate 104 pupils. They are nearly at capacity presently as is the roll of the High School.
"Please be assured if any discussions let alone decisions had been taken regarding Tiree High School I would have been in contact with the people of Tiree as they are the first to be consulted.
"Please do not hesitate to contact me regarding this matter or any other issues you have."
Councillor Mary-Jean Devon 01688 302792/07912 949073
