Official Opening of Dance School Halls of Residence
Bailie Liz Cameron, Executive Member for Children, Young People & Lifelong Learning, unveiled a plaque to signify the opening of the residence that is built in the grounds of the school and opened to pupils at the beginning of the new school year last August.
She said: “This is a great day for Glasgow and Scotland and adds a whole new dimension to the wonderful facilities at Knightswood Secondary School and national centre of excellence.
“The Dance School of Scotland is the country’s only fully funded centre of excellence for dance and musical theatre that has won acclaim from top performers including Dame Judi Dench.
The new halls of residence, which welcomed pupils at the beginning of the new term in August, has been constructed in the grounds of Knightswood Secondary to provide week-day accommodation for pupils attending the Dance School at Knightswood and the Music School at Douglas Academy in Milngavie.
City Property are delighted to have played a central role in this successful partnership approach in delivering this new facility that will deliver a number of benefits to the students, parents, community and the Council for many years to come.
