A former city school is due to be investigated by The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.
Oakbank School, which closed in 2008, has today been named as one of 17 more institutions across the country who will face scrutiny from chairwoman Lady Smith.
Oakbank was a specialist residential school, which taught children with emotional and behaviour issues.
Lady Smith urged anyone with information about any of the institutions to contact the inquiry.
She said: “It does not matter whether you have already made a report to the police or to anyone else and it does not matter whether or not you have been involved in any other investigation.
“You can still talk to us and we want to hear from you.

“I am well aware that it can be difficult and very emotional to talk about experiences in care and I want to take this opportunity to give an assurance that we have a dedicated witness support team here who will help and support anyone providing evidence to us.
“They will do so throughout the process.”
The school is the second north-east institution to come under the spotlight of the inquiry.
Nuns in charge of orphanage Nazareth House on Claremont Street have been accused of abusing children in their care, including beating a young girl until she bled, and threatening to ship a young boy off to Australia.
Oakbank, which was based on Mid Stocket Road, was closed amidst a wave of debts and falling referrals.
Legal action was taken against the school trust by Aberdeen City Council to recover cash used for the pensions of former employees.
The two parties reached an agreement where the trust agreed to pay back £4 million, which was completed earlier this year.
The trust was wound up when the debts were repaid.
Developer Carlton Rock bought the site of the former school for £7 million, building more than 100 homes.
