A year of celebration to mark the closing of an Aberdeen secondary school is to kick off this weekend.
Throughout the school year, Torry Academy is to host a series of events looking back at the school’s 90-year history.
Torry Fest, a free event tomorrow, will launch the Year of Celebration.
It will take place on the school grounds and will have activities for all ages including a bouncy castle, segways, craft stalls and a car boot sale.
Live entertainment is also set to be provided throughout the day from the Aberdeen Academy of Dance, Walker Road Dancers and Limelight Theatre Group.
Head teacher Jenny Cranna cannot wait to get the ball rolling on the celebration.
She said: “Torry Fest will officially open the Year of Celebration before Torry Academy closes next summer.
“With more than 30 craft stalls, car boot sales, bring and buy, bouncy castles, Segway, BBQ, ice-cream, Wowzie confectionery, Guide Dogs for the Blind plus an afternoon of live entertainment, this will hopefully be a fantastic afternoon of fun.
“Come along between noon and 4pm to join in the celebrations.”
Torry Academy, along with Kincorth Academy, is to be replaced with a new £46.9 million academy in the south of the city.
Lochside Academy is due to open at the start of the 2018-2019 school year.
A calendar of events is due to be announced in the coming months with the school also appealing for former pupils and teachers to get in touch.
The school is looking to host a number of events including a gala, pupil reunion and musical and sporting events.
Torry Academy is looking for the whole community to get involved and asked for help to make the Year of Celebration a lasting memory.
