Youngsters from across the north-east are being given the chance to name a new multimillion pound school in Aberdeen.
Students from eight schools, along with members of the community, will get to decide the name for the £47million academy at the south of the city, which will replace Torry and Kincorth.
The community will be able to vote for their favourite name out of five possibilities picked by Aberdeen City Council.
Work has begun on the new four-storey building, which will include facilities for up to 1,300 pupils. It will have a special focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Angela Taylor, convener of the education and children’s services committee at the local authority, said: “This is an exciting time for the Cove, Kincorth and Torry communities.
“It is still some time until the school will be complete but I think we would all like to see it completed as soon as possible.
“Pupils will also get to choose the logo and the colours of the school further down the line as well.”
Councillor Alan Donnelly, who represents the Torry area, said: “We normally have a competition like this to allow the kids to get involved so it will be nice to get their views.
“Children from around the city had the chance to name the Third Don Crossing, which was named the Diamond Bridge, so it will be great to see their suggestions for this new school.”
Voting on the name for the South of the City Academy will start from October 24 and will last for two weeks.
The potential names have not yet been revealed.
