22 October 2018 Deputy First Minister John Swinney MSP opens Elgin High School
On Monday 22nd October 2018 the new build of Elgin High School was formally opened by Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education & Skills, John Swinney.
Although our school has been open to students and staff for a year the final touches were completed as recently as last week. Elgin High School now has a 3G all-weather pitch, gymnasium and high-tech facilities to enable distance learning, in addition to many other first class resources.
Mr Swinney was given a tour of the school by senior students and Head Teacher, Hugh McCulloch. The 2-hour tour including the sports centre where the Deputy First Minister attempted to ‘shoot some hoops’ in the basketball court with students that were practicing there.
The Deputy First Minister unveiled the plaque in front of an invited audience of senior councilors, staff, students and representatives from the construction teams.As part of his speech Mr Swinney stated how: “The structure of the school creates a central area which has a unifying effect, enabling connections to be made through different parts of the curriculum, adding that “this kind of thinking encourages the teaching profession to look outside the boundaries of their own classroom at connections elsewhere.”
We look forward to using the facilities to continually improve the outcomes for our young people and further support and engage with all members of our local community.
