CUMBERNAULD residents have been sharing frantically, online, a new video called ‘Save Abronhill High School’ which examines the council’s proposals to close Abronhill High School and move its staff and students to Kildrum’s Cumbernauld High School.

The new documentary was directed and produced by Abronhill resident Martin Henderson and asks a number of key questions of the council’s proposals, such as the process of consultation; the safety of the students; the impact of closure on the local community; as well as the response of the community towards the proposals. 

The fifteen minute film talks to a number of local residents as well as key names in the Save Abronhill High School campaign, with narration provided by actor Tam Dean Burn. 

Recently North Lanarkshire Council’s Learning and Leisure Services Department announced its recommendation that Abronhill High still close, but next summer, instead of this June, with a new school being built at Cumbernauld High within the next four to five years.

The decision on the recommendations and the future of the school will be decided upon at a meeting of the council’s Learning and Leisure Services Committee on 6th February.
