The current building at Kingussie High School was opened in October 1970. As part of the celebrations to mark the 40th anniversary in 2010, several pupils at Kingussie High School recently took part in oral history recordings during the school's activity weeks at the end of the academic year.

In this extract, Christina Sheffield is being interviewed by Amy Clark.

Interviewer: Hello. What is your name, age and what year are you in?

Christina: My name is Christina Sheffield, I'm fourteen and I'm in second year.

Interviewer: Where do you live and how do you get to school?

Christina: I live in Aviemore and I get to school by bus and it's about a twenty minute journey.

Interviewer: What do you wear to school?

Christina: Normally just black trousers or a skirt and then a shirt and then just a black top, and a tie.

Interviewer: Do you like what you wear to school?

Christina: No I think it's a bit plain - it needs more colour.

Interviewer: Yeh. What do you do at interval or lunch time?

Christina: Just hand around, have a laugh.

Interviewer: What do you usually eat when it's lunch time?

Christina: It depends. You can either go the canteen or you sometimes go down the street and just have whatever you fancy.

Interviewer: Do you ever play any games, sports, at school, either before classes, in the interval, or at lunch time?

Christina: No, I'm not really a sporty person, especially not at school, unless it's PE, but that's necessary.

Interviewer: What are your favourite subjects at school?

Christina: Music, definitely. I just love it, I don't know why, but I do. And science, I like science too.

Interviewer: What classes don't you like?

Interviewer: About French, probably, and maths because I just don't understand either of them.

Interviewer: Which teachers do you think you'll remember at Kingussie High School once you've left?

Christina: Definitely Mr Thompson, he's a great laugh.

Interviewer: What do you hope to do when you leave school?

Christina: I don't really know. Either go and perform somewhere, or do something sciency, but that's really it, all I know right now.

Interviewer: Ok. Bye!

Christina: Thanks.
