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, Laura Mackenzie is being interviewed by Harry Grant.

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

Laura: My name is Laura Mackenzie, I'm thirteen, and I'm in second year.

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

Laura: I live in Aviemore and I get to school by bus.

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

Laura: I wear a shirt and trousers, and sometimes a jumper, and a tie.

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

Laura: I hang around with my friends at interval and lunch time and I don't really eat anything at interval but I have my lunch at lunch time.

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

Laura: Not really.

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

Laura: My favourite subject's probably English because I like the 'word' side of it and I don't like French cos I don't really understand it.

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

Laura: I think I'll remember Mrs Nield because she's such a nice person. I'll always value her help in my work.

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

Laura: I hope to do something that earns a lot of money.

Interviewer: Thank you for your time.
