In the second decade of the 21st century Campbeltown has a fine grammar school building completed on schedule.

Pupils entering it for the first time gasped in amazement as they walked through the bright airy corridors.

Most had not been in its, canteen, atrium area lit by huge skylights and overlooked by four balcony corridors, more akin to a smart shopping centre. The comments at Wednesday break would have been interesting.

Like a church or a stadium a school is just the building where an institution carries on the job of education.

Judging by acting head Catherine Cameron’s speech she is certain the building will provide the environment for great teaching.

Courier correspondence

A prolific Courier letter writer, William Crossan, a former  CGS head, discussed last week’s editorial, about push and pull in electronic media, with Sid Gallagher, another retired teacher, on Argyll FM.

Sid knew the point was a hunt for more letters and apparently discovered a letter could be emailed.
