Children’s book character Olli The Monkey was at Livingstone Lower School this month to open the school’s new extension.

Olli, who loves to use sign language and features in the award-winning Sign With Olli books, declared the new building officially cut the ribbon.

Headteacher Linda Crombie said: “Our new extension, which contains 10 additional classrooms, has been named the Elizabeth building. We thought it was fitting as it’s the year of the Diamond Jubilee. We left a trail of bananas for Olli as a special treat, leading from our beautiful Victoria building so that he could find our new classrooms!”
