Blairgowrie Community Campus

Tomorrow is the start back to school after the summer holidays for primary and nursery pupils into their brand new school. Yesterday we had an official visit/tour around the facilities. All I can really say is that it is amazing. Unfortunately I could not get any photos inside as there were too many people in the way! I couldn't believe how huge the school is inside, it will take the pupils a few days to get their bearings. All the classrooms are quite open plan with no doors, all the equipment is state of the art, a beautiful library, gym, media centre etc, etc. My children are excited about school lunches as they will be given a top up card to pay for meals and they have to scan their fingerprint when they go into lunch. The teachers have a huge balcony running off from their staff room, from where they can monitor the gates and playground and perhaps catch a few rays of sunshine!! It really is a school for the 21st century. The local community and clubs will also have access to many of the facilities after school hours.
