Acclaimed Scottish actor Jon Morrison who has appeared in many plays, films and television series since the early 1970s, was a popular visitor to Brannock High.

Jon, who has appeared in The Bill, Bergerac and Taggart and was most recently seen as DC Kenny Lockhart in Vera, has engaged in a series of visits to the school to support the work of pupils both within the Creative Digital Media group and the drama department.

His experiences within the television industry will be put to excellent use in assisting pupils with their coursework, which includes the making of a short film.

An initial question and answer session proved to be a huge success, with pupils keen to explore the many wide and varied experiences that Jon has benefited from over the years.

In conjunction with Scotia Aid UK, plans are afoot for the production of a special short film starring Jon and some Brannock pupils.
