Last month, I spoke to pupils from 3rd to 6th year at Boroughmuir High School about my work at parliament and in the constituency.
I was asked some insightful questions which showed how engaged they are in the political process and how decisions made in Holyrood and Westminster affect their daily lives. We even had time for an “Oscar-style” selfie.
The school also received good news in the form of further planning permission for the new school this week. The school site is marked by the Union Canal to the south, Dundee Street to the north, and Viewforth to the east. The student residencies being built off Gibson Terrace for Napier University mark the western edge of the site. Boroughmuir is a superb school and the new building will provide an excellent learning environment. Work is expected to start this summer and be completed in 2016.
