Detailed design plans for a £100m project to build nine new Dumfries and Galloway schools have been unveiled.
A new school will replace Wallace Hall primary in Thornhill
They are part of a region-wide project expected to start in the autumn.
Primary schools in Castle Douglas, Heathhall, Kirkcudbright, Lockerbie and Thornhill, as well as a Dumfries RC school, are included in the proposals.
Secondaries in Thornhill and Lockerbie and an "all through" primary and secondary in Moffat are also part of the public private partnership plan.
The proposals also include a refurbishment of Stranraer Academy.
The programme will be carried out on a phased basis but several schools will be constructed simultaneously.
The detailed designs for each school are going on public display at a series of information events - the first of which is being held in Castle Douglas.
It is hoped that the first new school could be completed in the summer of 2009.
