Opening of the McKinnon Block, Scots College, Wellington

Dame Patsy did the honours at the official opening of the new McKinnon Block at Wellington's Scots College this afternoon.

The new block is the third major achievement in the school's recent change programme which has also included the admission of girls to the senior school and a curriculum overhaul.

The McKinnon Block is named for former Scots College Headmaster and Wellington identity Ian McKinnon and wife Jenny.

Highlights of the opening was the first ever performance of the Kairangi Chorale (the Scots College choir) and a waiata sung by the entire staff.
