Brechin Primaries were very successful in the 1982/83 Mathematics Project Competition for Scottish Primary Schools. Both Andover and Maisondieu have won awards.
For two of the seven awards made to come to Brechin schools was most credible. In addition Edzell Primary School gained a certificate of honourable mention.
A big ‘want’ in Brechin, especially since the city started expanding in all directions, has been a street map. Now, a small, compact and quite excellent map has been produced by the Parks, Recreation and Tourism Service of Angus District Council which should commend itself to the citizens, who may find on it streets they would have had difficulty in locating before .
