Images taken from the skies above Dundee have revealed progress on the construction of a new £13.2 million school.
The photos, taken by Broughty Ferry-based Broadwing Media, show the development of Tayview Primary in Menzieshill.
Just five months ago, the site was little more than a pile of rubble — but the new images show the project is clearly taking shape.
Pupils from both Hillside and Gowriehill primaries are set to move into the new school in August 2017.
There are also plans for the campus, situated between Dickson Avenue and Earn Crescent, to be part of a community hub for locals.
Michael Groves, of Broadwing Media, told the Tele how impressed he had been with the progress made by the construction workers.
He said: “The photos were taken with the Inspire X1 drone and we’ve now got two sets of images.
“We took some on Tuesday and another set early in October, so we’ve been able to compare the progress.
“It’s actually incredible how quickly they have done the work so far.
“The site manager was also really efficient and organised when I went along.”
Michael said he was contacted by Tayview Primary School Parent Council to take the pictures so the children could see the school they will be moving into next year.
He added: “We were contacted by one of the members of the parent group to take the photos because they wanted to show the kids just how their new school was progressing.
“They are really pleased with the photographs and they are printing copies.
“There’s one with the Tay Bridge in the background that is particularly nice. I think it’s just great to be part of the community like this.”
Stewart Hunter, convener of Dundee City Council’s children and families services committee, said everything appeared to be on schedule for the school to open in August 2017.
He said: “It’s going really well at the moment and the progress is on time.
“Obviously the contractors have been on site now for a while and they are doing some great work up there.
“I think it’s really exciting to see the building go up.
“It’s two schools merging into one and the children are also very excited about how it will look.”
Mr Hunter added: “There was a report to committee on Monday about the condition of the two schools and they were given a C grading, so they aren’t in great shape.
“There are no safety issues with them or anything like that, but we’d obviously like the pupils to go into a new, modern school.
“The two schools have done a great job over the years, but it’s time for a change now.”
