DGS U14 Rugby Team Update (NEWS3)
The U14 team, coaches and parents would like to thank the community from Dunbar Primary School and beyond who came along and let the squad loose with their sponges on Sunday 12th June to get their cars washed at the Store. Despite the damp weather, we were busy all day and had a lot of fun. The car wash raised a helpful £381.47 towards the Northumberland tour fund. Many thanks, U14 Rugby Team.
Our P7’s visited Dunbar Grammar on Monday and Tuesday and followed their new timetable. A massive thank you to all the S6 students who helped with the transition events on Friday, Monday and Tuesday. Our P7 children were really grateful. The P7s thoroughly enjoyed their 2 day visit across all subjects – with a special mention being given to the food in the Bistro.
Congratulations to former pupil Maria Lyle, as last week she won not 1, not 2, but 3 gold medals at the IPC European Athletics Championships in Grossetto, Italy! Maria claimed victory in the 100m, 200m and the 4 x 100m final in which the GB team set a new world record with a time of 53.17 seconds.
Dunbar Primary School are delighted to hear that she is now preparing for the Paralympics in Rio. Well Done Maria.
