Primary Science Base


Kingarth Street had a celebration to remember as the new Primary Science Base opened its doors on November 2nd. 

Staff, pupils and guests gathered on the top floor of the School for the historic occasion, with the former Chair of Governors, Professor Williams, unveiling the plaque to mark the official opening of the Science Room.

Head teacher, Miss Macphail delivered a welcoming speech followed by opening remarks from Professor Williams, who has additionally donated a new Science Prize Quaich.

Following this, pupils delivered a grand tour of the new facility and presented a biology class alongside Mrs Buchan.

The dedicated base, which includes a store room and prep room, began construction in summer 2017 and was completed just before the October holiday.

The idea of a dedicated Science department came from the pupils themselves. Once they had formed a plan, the pupils spoke with the Governors and Professor Williams made their dream of a colourful new classroom a reality. 

Thanks goes to the Hutchie community for making the project such a success, including Janitor, Mr Smillie, Mrs McCrossan from the Trust Office and the Science Working Party – Miss Struthers, Mrs Buchan and Mrs Dempster.

Mrs Mackay is the Senior Teacher in charge of Science and is looking forward to leading the Science curriculum in the vibrant new surroundings.

Head of Upper Junior School, Miss Gibson added: “We were very pleased to see the Governors and staff from the Technology and Science Departments over to celebrate the opening. They were joined by our Science poster winners (left), P5B and Mrs Buchan, everyone really enjoyed themselves.”
