Oban High School was officially opened last week, more than a year after the brand new secondary learning facility opened its doors.

VIPs and invited guests were welcomed by Oban High School Pipe Band before being given a tour of the grounds and building by pupils.

Performances and presentations followed, featuring the pipe band, Traditional School of Music, music department, gymnastics, School of Dance, Senior Pupil Leadership Team, video speeches from Brendan O’Hara (MP) and Mike Russell (MSP) and an address from Douglas Hendry, director of community services.

Councillor Yvonne McNeilly, policy lead for education, unveiled the official plaque before head teacher Peter Bain gave a vote of thanks.

Inside, the £36 million building boasts a beauty and hair salon, three games halls, two dance studios and a fully-equipped gym as well as a multitude of state of the art classrooms suitable for all learning abilities.
