We had a very successful evening last night.
Gemma Rattray (S1) won the Rotary Young Writer Award for a short story. She was competing against pupils from the other East Kilbride schools as well as Strathaven Academy.
Alan Winnie and Archie Wallace (both S2) were also winners of the second round of the English Speaking Union Junior Debating competition at Holy Cross High School, arguing that Turkey should be allowed in to the EU. Despite having a difficult argument to make, they beat teams from Mearns Castle, Holy Cross and St Joseph’s, Dumfries to go through to the next round.
Congratulations to all 3 pupils.
