Bright sunshine and a busy agenda at Kilgraston’s Open Day

Kilgraston’s magnificent sandstone building was looking particularly resplendent at the weekend; framed against a backdrop of crystal clear blue skies it welcomed dozens of guests to the 2019 Open Day.

Visitors from around the world were greeted by the school’s impressive all-girl pipes and drums band, braving chilly temperatures to perform beautifully on the school’s front lawns.

A packed agenda started with refreshments in the school’s grand Central Hall – accompanied by a pupil string quartet – and a presentation by the Head, Mrs Dorothy MacGinty.

Prospective pupils had the opportunity to participate in lively Music, Drama and Science workshops together with tours of the school from current pupils.

During the busy morning, both prospective and current Kilgraston Fifth Form pupils attended specific Information Presentations about subject choice in Sixth Form.

Mrs MacGinty commented: “Girls were delighted to welcome all of our many visitors on Saturday and to be given the opportunity to impress upon everybody why they feel that Kilgraston is such a special place.”

Further ‘Open Afternoons’ are to be held on Friday 15 and Friday 29 March at 14:00. Please feel free to come along and join us. Registration
