Cathkin High Official Opening

Enjoyed today’s official opening of the new Cathkin High. The highlights? Some absolutely fantastic art work on display at the entrance to the street area, listening to the young people singing, dancing, creating music. Great to see the effort put in by the SLC glow team to assist school in streaming the event to all classes. The provost Russell Cleary unveiled the opening plaque with the assistance of the Head Boy and Girl. The organisation of these official openings is now down to a fine art, central staff support the schools during the process in lots of ways. One man who is rarely mentioned in dispatches is the wonderful Des Dickson and his team who help the school pull the whole event together.  This was the tenth official opening of a new secondary school in South Lanarkshire. The school modernisation programme  in SLC has been a mammoth undertaking, the secondary phase is now almost complete, the primary programme is still ongoing. All 19 secondaries and 124 primary schools will have been rebuilt or modernised by the end of the programme.
