HSD at the Heart of the City of Discovery

We are delighted to let you know that the Foundation has received a very generous donation expressly for the installation of state-of-the-art LED lighting for the pillars and front façade of the school. 

These fantastic new lights provide a much more cost and energy efficient replacement to the previous provision. In addition, they will allow us to take our place alongside our neighbours in showcasing our iconic Main Building as part of the community at the heart of the city. The new lighting is being provided by the generous support of Insights, The Lothian Family and The High School of Dundee Foundation, to whom we are hugely indebted.

Donations from our supporters over the last few years have also enabled us to significantly increase the Bursary Fund and General Fund. Specific donations have also facilitated the provision of new seating in the back playground, the purchase of new musical instruments, the creation of a robotics programme to enhance STEM learning within the School. In addition, through other generous donations, we have been able to initiate designs for our playground redesign, and new equipment and materials for Drama, Art, Pipe Band, Sport, Computing Science, Health & Food Technology, English, History.  

All of these wonderful enhancements would not have been possible without your help so we wanted to find a fitting way to say a huge thank you to all of our School Community of donors and supporters.

In response our Heads of Departments in the Performing and Visual Arts and our pupils have arranged a very special performance to mark the 'switching on' of our new  lighting on the Pillars and also in celebration of the wonderful support we have had from our entire donor community over recent years.

We would be delighted to welcome you along to the ‘switching on’ of the lights on the Pillars at 6.30pm on Thursday 2nd November. This will be an uplifting outdoor event with music and drama performances and artistic displays. Please come along and be part of this fantastic whole school community event.  

Looking forward to seeing you there.
