Two Shetland schools are due for closure following consultations. Their roll-numbers hardly add up. Olnafirth Primary School, which was built for 125 children, now has 13 pupils, decreasing soon to eight. The Out Skerries (above) barely supports the smallest secondary school in the UK, with three pupils currently attending. The details are in an item from Shetland News.
