Retiring Member of Staff

After working in Dunbar Grammar for 31 years, Sheila Martin from our Bistro will be retiring. Sheila has cared for generations of students at Dunbar Grammar and we will miss her. We would like to wish her a long and happy retirement.

Thank You

Pam, Ryan, Ellie & Olivia Ferguson (all volunteers) presented Kirsty McLuckie with £550 towards Dinners at DGS – the collection was from their Granny Mary Marshall’s funeral. Granny Mary attended our Intergenerational Dinner. Thank you so much!

Christmas Concert

The DGS Christmas Concert was on Wednesday. Cluster P7s joined us during the dress rehearsal in the afternoon. A hugely diverse group of talented students (and some members of staff!) performed to a very appreciative audience. Everyone enjoyed a great night!  Huge thanks to all involved, in particular Drama, Music and the Instrumental Service.

Christmas Dances

The S3/4 dance on Monday was a huge success; everyone had a wonderful night!  Thanks to the PE department for organising this and all of the dances.
