DSC_0019.JPG (225×150)After three weeks of packing up, moving and unpacking, the new AHS opened to S4, S5 and S6 pupils on Friday 27 October. S1, S2 and S3 pupils will join the new school on Monday.

After assembling in the games hall of the Clickimin Centre, classes walked over to the new school entrance. With the Lerwick Pipe Band playing outside the door, and the Lerwick Brass Band playing inside, George Smith and Theo Smith (chair and vice-chair of SIC Education and Families Committee chairman) presented each pupil with a commemorative badge.

Following a short welcome speech, pupils were taken to their registration classes and then given a tour around the school before going to their first lessons in the new building.
