Congratulations to both Daniel and Amie Cousins who won gold medals and championship patches in an Archery competition in August. Daniel scored his personal best and set a new Scottish record in both field and hunter rounds (two different shooting styles) and now holds three Scottish records! Amie put a tremendous amount of training in before the competition shooting 12 days out of 14 and her hard work paid off. #DeterminedHappySuccessful

Margot Russell, Deputy Provost and local Labour councillor, came into school today to meet the winning group from Creative Dalkeith and discuss their vision for the regeneration of Jarnac Court. Margot was overwhelmed by the level of creativity shown by the pupils and provided some insight into the history of Jarnac Court. Margot is hopeful that this idea can be taken forward and will be taken into consideration by the planners when they start to make progress with the development. Margot is excited to see the 3D renders that the pupils created at D2 Architects office last week.
