Our Head Teacher, Mrs Legrix, and two of the School Captains, Neve Kellacher and Jack Rogers, represented the school at a reception hosted by John Swinney (MSP) in Edinburgh Castle to mark the centenary of the 1918 Education Act (Scotland). This event marked 100 years of denominational schools being part of the state education system.
