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, Harry Grant is being interviewed by Daniel Leighton.

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

Harry: My name is Harry Grant and I am fourteen and in second year.

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

Harry: I live in Kingussie and I walk to school.

Interviewer: What do you wear to school and are you happy with the school uniform?

Harry: Well, I never like, I've never liked school uniform but I wear a white shirt and black trousers, and a tie.

Interviewer: What do you do at the interval and lunch time and what do you usually eat?

Harry: I hang around with my friends and I usually eat sandwiches.

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

Harry: Football, sometimes, but other than that, not very often.

Interviewer: What are your favourite subjects at school and what don't you like?

Harry: PE's quite fun and English, I suppose, but other than that, don't really like many.

Interviewer: Which teachers do you think you'll remember once you've left school and what will you remember about them?

Harry: I think I'll remember Mr Taylor, in first year, for giving me an enjoyable year, and Mrs Nield for giving me the opportunity to have this interview, and that's about it.

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

Harry: Not sure.

Interviewer: Thank you.
