VIDEO: Pupils arrive for first day at campus

Secondary school pupils in Brechin arrived for their first at the brand new £26.5 million Community Campus this morning (Wednesday).

Pupils had gone to the old High School building for their normal form time, before congregating outside the new campus.

It was originally hoped to have a piper play the pupils in to the building, however due to unforeseen circumstances this was not possible.

Pupils were led in by the school’s head boy and girl. The school is operating on a suspended timetable for part of today, to allow teachers to show pupils around the new campus.

Areas of the campus - including the stairwells - have been decorated with motivational quotes, including one by Nelson Mandela, which states “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
