That this House congratulates Kelvinside Academy on its 140th anniversary; notes that the independent school was founded in 1878 for the education of boys who were drawn from the growing population of the western suburbs of Glasgow; further notes that the school became co-educational in 1998 and now has capacity for over 600 pupils covering all ages from nursery to secondary school; recognises that the category A listed main building, which is situated next to the Botanic Gardens in the West End of the city, was designed by renowned Scottish architect James Sellars; understands that the school has branched out from the main campus in recent years to open the Balgray Nursery campus in the West End of Glasgow and the Green Forest Nursery at Langbank Farm in East Dunbartonshire; appreciates that the School motto is be the best you can be; acknowledges that Ian Munro was appointed as the new rector in 2016, succeeding Allan Gilliland who held the post for a year following the sudden death of Robert Karling in May 2015; and wishes all the staff and pupils at the school the very best for their celebrations and for the years to come.
