High building

work on

track for

October 2010

completion

By Ross Hamilton

As Bannockburn High School prepares

to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its

move to the current Broombridge campus,

substantial renovations to complement the

recently completed extension are proceeding

well.

Bannockburn News contacted the school

recently to speak to project co-ordinator

and Depute Headteacher Mr John Wyllie

about what the improvements will mean for

students, and how disruption will be minimised

during the renovations.

Mr Wyllie told us that every teaching area

and the lecture theatre will be completely

refurbished while brand new kitchens for

the social area canteen will be installed.

The renovations are being carried out in

two distinct phases. The first, which commenced

in June and should last until next

Bannockburn High School

renovations mark 30th anniversary

of move to the Broomridge campus

spring, sees work being carried out on the

wing of the school nearest the Bannockburn

Road. Classes from that wing have temporarily

moved outside to the “educational

city” of purpose-built portacabins in the

school grounds, where they are proceeding

without disruption.

In the spring, these classes will be held for

the first time in the newly completed wing,

while renovations will commence in the other

wing of the school.

The aim of the school management team

and contractor, Hadden Construction, is

that the refurbishments will be completed

by October of next year and leave the building

ready to face the elements for at least

another 30 years.
