Dumfries and Galloway College has held a celebration of thirty years of learning and teaching in Stranraer.

Students, staff, and special guests gathered at the college’s campus for the socially distanced event to mark the occasion.


It was a special day for one member of college staff, Lorna Matthews, who has been with the campus since it opened its doors three decades ago.


The event was held in the college’s STEM centre and saw cake made by local bakers served to attendees.


College Principal, Joanna Campbell, and local MSP, Emma Harper, were also at the event which was also being streamed to staff online.


The online streaming was made possible using the college’s new VScene technology, which was installed as part of a recent revamp of the college’s technology at both its Stranraer and Dumfries locations.


Dumfries and Galloway College is proud of the contribution it has made to the Stranraer area over the past three decades and remains committed to helping the region build and grow in the future.


Principal Joanna Campbell said:

“It was a pleasure to join my colleagues and our guests as we celebrate three great decades of Dumfries and Galloway College in Stranraer.

“Over the years, we’ve seen thousands of people come through the doors at our Stranraer campus and all of them have become part of our college community.

“Stranraer is a great place to live, work, and study and I’m proud that our campus has made such a great contribution to the town.”
