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, Jess Head is being interviewed by Joshua Peters.

Interviewer: Right. What do you do at the interval and lunch time?

Jess: Well, at both I just, like, chat with my friends and laugh.

Interviewer: What do you usually eat at lunch time?

Interviewer: Which teachers do you think you'll remember once you've left school?
