Celebrating Achievement – Tristan, 5D2

Congratulations to Tristan in 5D2 who did a great job of representing DHS  in Aberdeen recently at The Robert Gordon’s College School Ski Race. Over 60 racers took part from schools principally from the Aberdeen area but also Edinburgh and Midlothian areas too. In a strong U18 category Tristan finished 3rd and achieved a podium place. He was pleased to be able to take part on behalf of the school and enjoyed the day.
