A new multi-million pound primary school will be built on the site of the Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village.
The primary school, which could be completed as soon as 2018, will feature 18 classrooms and educate around 460 pupils.
Margaret Barrie's six-month-old son, James, could be one of the first pupils at the school.
She said: “It’s an exciting prospect for his first attendance at school.
"As every parent knows, it’s the most important day, their first day at school, and if it’s a brand new place and a whole new experience for all the pupils, I think it’ll be an amazing experience for the kids."
“It would be important for the children to see that they can achieve the same as the Scotland team achieved – medals and good goals for life. That would be the biggest boost, to see a good sports arena for the children to experience as well as the educational side.”
Glasgow city council leader Gordon Matheson believes the multi-million pound primary school will provide a real legacy of the Glasgow 2014 Games, which were branded the 'most successful' ever.
Mr Matheson said: “We’re going to be going out to consult on a brand new primary school right on this very site, right in the heart of the Commonwealth village. For me, the Commonwealth Games were never only about 11 days of brilliant sport and having great fun – that was fantastic. But it was always about the lasting benefits to the people of the city.
“Right here in the very heart of the Commonwealth Village, we’re going to be building a new primary school. That benefits all of the families, it benefits the wider community in the east end of the city. We’re also going to be consulting on a brand new early years centre. That helps to attract even more people here so it shows we’re investing for the long term.
“It’s a community, it’s a village. We didn’t build this principally for the Commonwealth Games, we built it for the people of Glasgow. By creating and building a new primary school, we’re proving that we’re in this for the long term.”
For more information on the new school, tune into STV Glasgow at 3.30pm or tonight from 5.15pm.
Margaret continued: “I have two sons and a daughter and my daughter will be attending school this year but to talk about James attending school, it’s a bit bizarre but a pleasure to come here and experience what’s going to be happening – it’ll be good for the east end.”
