Dunfermline High School officially opens

DHS 004Dunfermline High School has officially opened, with pupils performing in a music-filled launch ceremony.

The opening began with pipers welcoming guests at the main entrance. Clarsach Duo, consisting of Amy Sinclair and Megan Jarvie, played harp music to greet guests outside the Assembly Hall.

Soloists, a wind band and a choir performed in between various speeches, including introductions by Head Boy and Head Girl, Alexander Johnstone and Amber Russell, and an address by the Provost of Fife, Jim Leishman.

Attending the ceremony, Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker said: “I’m delighted to see the impressive new Dunfermline High School officially opened.

“The ceremony has been very enjoyable, with lots of gifted young singers and musicians. The pupils and staff have obviously worked hard to ensure everything went perfectly on the day.

“The new building is very impressive, modern and practical, with lots of light. It nods to the past, with one wing pointing to the site of the former school. The internal street of the new school points towards the Abbey, where the first Dunfermline school opened in 1128.

“I hope the pupils will enjoy the time they spend learning in the inspiring environment of the new Dunfermline High School.”
