American hockey dream


S6 pupil, Mairi Fletcher is set to live her American dream after winnning a top field hockey scholarship to attend Michigan State University. 

Mairi, who has attended the School since P1, has been playing hockey for the past seven years, representing Scotland in the U16s, U18s and U21s for the past four years. 

Picking up a hockey stick in P5, the 17-year-old has always aspired to play professionally and now looks forward to taking on the American sports scholarship.

Mairi is currently undertaking a fitness programme in preparation for her course and will fly out to Tennessee in July to join family before her adventure at University begins. 

Very well done Mairi!
