Hundreds of youngsters have started school at the city’s newest campus.
The £16 million Coldside Campus on Ann Street is home to Our Lady’s Primary, Rosebank Primary and Frances Wright Nursery School.
Work on the development, on the site of the former Alexander Street multis, started last year.
The campus will accommodate hundreds of pupils as well as providing facilities for the community.
The new £17m North East Campus opened its doors to pupils of Longhaugh Primary, St Francis Primary and Quarry View Nursery yesterday.
Dundee City Council’s depute convener of children and families service Roisin Smith said: “Pupils and teachers will be keen to get down to work in their new surroundings.
“The new campus demonstrates how we are investing for the future of our young people through an ambitious building programme
“These are state-of-the-art facilities to meet the challenges that our pupils will face in the years ahead.”
Coldside councillor Anne Rendall said the opening of the new campus and the development of housing on Ann Street had “transformed” the whole area.
She said: “I visited the site three times at the start of the project and most recently in the last four weeks.
“It is fantastic to see how far it has come along.
“There are some great open spaces and outdoor areas that will be a great asset to the pupils.
“We will also be holding our surgeries at the school now as well.
“The school is so close to new housing development, which will make the school a big focus for the whole community.
“The arrival of the school and the new houses has transformed the whole area.”
Meanwhile, a high school in Broughty Ferry has welcomed back a record-equalling number of pupils.
More than 1,250 pupils will be taught at Grove Academy this year.
Rector Graham Hutton said 236 pupils from Forthill, Eastern and Barnhill primaries had helped the school to equal the previous record number of students, which was set two years ago.
He said: “There are so many great opportunities in further education that pupils are making the decision to stay on.
“It’s great to see everyone back after the summer break and the extra first-year students joining us from the primary schools across the ward.”
