Holmes Miller was delighted to share in the opening celebrations for the new Baldragon Academy, Dundee earlier today.  Formally opened by Deputy First Minister and Cabinet Secretary for Education and Skills, Mr John Swinney, we were entertained during proceedings by the Academy's Vocal Group and Wind Band who were the star attraction for the day.

Baldragon Academy is a 1100 pupil place community school, designed and delivered in close collaboration with Dundee City Council Capital Projects, Robertson Construction - Tayside, HUB East Central and Scottish Futures Trust.

Ryan Holmes, Project Architect,  “Following five years investment in the project, it was great to witness first hand, the real sense of ownership and enjoyment the staff and pupils have in the new facility”

Holmes Miller's wish for the new school is that it can provide a platform, in whatever small way, whereby all users can fully fulfil their academic ambitions and personal development.

On a personal note, can we share in wishing a long and prosperous retirement to the outgoing Head Teacher, Mr Kenny Hearn.
