An Aberdeen school marking 90 years of history before it closes its doors is calling on former pupils who feature on its honour boards to get in touch.
Throughout the school year, Torry Academy has hosted a series of events looking at the school’s history ahead of its closure in July.
Torry Academy, along with Kincorth Academy, will be replaced with the new £46.9 million Lochside Academy in the south of the city, which is due to open at the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
Honour boards inside the school dating back to the 1920s are filled with the names of former pupils who received recognition for their academic efforts and work in the community.
Head teacher Jenny Cranna is calling for former pupils, or family members of those who feature on the plaques to get in touch.
More than 200 names of boys and girls who attended the school and were honoured appear on the boards, dating back to 1927.
Ms Cranna said: “We are looking to trace as many of the ex-pupils or relatives of the pupils named on our boards.”
The school wants to give any former pupils or family members a photo beside the boards as a memento.
Ms Cranna added: “We are looking to give them a photo as a memento of their time in Torry.
“Individual photos will be given to as many people as possible as a lasting keepsake of their time in Torry School, Intermediate or Academy before the school closes in July.
“It would be great if we managed to get contacts for all of the 230 names mentioned on the boards
“We have three boards and it goes back to 1927, pupils were honoured for their academic work and for their services to the community
“The school also started a fourth year honours board for those who did well in their exams.
“It was started in 2000 and it was seen as a way of recognising those who were leaving after S4.”
The school has been celebrating its final year with a host of events.
Torry Fest officially kicked-off the calendar of activities in September 2017, attracting more than 1,400 people who enjoyed craft stalls and a car boot sale.
A popular karaoke competition at the academy also had a special twist where former winners were invited to take part.
The contest, which has been held since 1996, was organised by pupils.
Torry’s own Joyce Falconer, known for her role in BBC TV show River City, returned to the school to act as chief judge. She was the special guest on the panel of judges, made up of 14 people from the senior management staff.
A disco for former pupils will also be held at the Beach Ballroom, on Friday, May 18, at 7.30pm.
