It was a monumental day for Hutchesons’ as the Pre-School was officially opened by honoured guest, Nancy Allan, BA, PGCE (Primary) PGCEE, on Thursday, September 20th.
Nancy was joined on the day by Senior Staff, School Governors and Pre-School pupils for the special occasion, with Nancy unveiling the official plaque.
Rector Mr Gambles delivered a welcome speech, thanking Nancy and the Hutchesons’ community for their hard work and involvement in making this new venture possible for the Hutchie community.
Pre-School pupils then showed the guests around their brand-new classroom and had the opportunity to show off what they have been working on in class alongside their teachers.
Nancy said: “I am so honoured to open the Hutchesons’ Pre-School today, it has been a privilege to work with the Primary and Pre-School staff on what I have called ‘Project Pre-School'.
“The quality of experience for the children was what always shone through during the planning process and Head of Pre-School, Mrs Dempster, has poured hours into organising and planning activites for the children.
"Everyone here at Hutchesons’ wanted the Pre-School to be of the highest quality for the children and this has most certainly been achieved.
“The Pre-School has everything and more for these pupils to get the best education possible and I know they will gain this here at Hutchesons’.
"It therefore gives me the greatest pleasure to declare the new Pre-School open!”
