Harris Academy Project Board

Yesterday, I took part in the latest meeting of the Harris Academy Project Board, which is overseeing the building of the new school campus on Perth Road.

The good news is that the building project is well on course to be completed on time, with the school returning to the Perth Road in August of next year.

We were updated on the planning for the move back to the site (which includes the move of both Harris from its decant site in Lawton Road and of Menzieshill High School whose pupils become part of the Harris Academy family from next August), travel arrangements for pupils at the Perth Road site and I raised the need for improved vehicle 'drop off' arrangements at the school.     I also updated the Board on progress towards getting a new adult learning/evening classes group together once the school has returned to Perth Road.
