Dalkeith senior boys make a good impression in IKEA!

The Office staff took a call from a lady from Dalton, North Berwick today.
She came across about a dozen of our older boys this morning in Ikea, waiting in a queue for food.
She wanted to pass over how impressed she was by these nice and polite boys, they ushered her to the front of the queue in front of them and were very nice to her, chatting away.  She asked them which school they were from.
Well done boys!
