FORMER pupils of Chryston High School have been invited to take a trip down memory lane.

An open evening is beingheld to celebrate the school’s history, before pupils and staff move into a new state-of -the-art building in August.

North Lanarkshire Council has invested £22million in building a new Chryston High and Chryston Cultural Centre.

Former pupils and teachers, as well as parents and friends of Chryston High, have been invited back to have one last look at their old school on Thursday, May 17 at 7pm.

The event will give ex-pupils a chance to meet with their former teachers, and the PE department are hoping to have a display of new and old equipment to show the differences between now and then.

Head teacher Linda Johnstone said: “Now the moment has almost finally arrived, everyone is eagerly looking forward to moving into our splendid new building and starting a whole new era in the life of Chryston High School.

“It’s tremendous we’re going to enjoy the very best educational facilities and I’m sure we’ll all quickly adapt to our new home. At the same time, of course, our hearts are tinged with moments of real sadness at leaving behind the building that has housed so many successes and helped generate so many memories for generations of pupils, staff and parents during its lifetime.”

She added: “We’re hoping for a large turnout to mark this landmark moment in the history of school and hope to welcome back many, many faces from yesterday and yesteryear!”
