International Success!

Congratulations to Alessandro Schenini of S4 who was selected to represent Scottish Schools in the annual December International Pentathlon against teams from England, Ireland and Wales.

Recognition must also go to Finlay Mathers (S3) who was in the training squad for the U16 Boys team for the same event.
The Over 16 boys finished third and Alessandro is pictured second right (above) with his bronze medal.
We are delighted to report that Alessandro achieved four personal bests at the event. He narrowly missed out on one in the Long Jump, but not deterred he went on to jump 7.00m on the 16th of January, breaking the Scottish U17 record!
Alessandro is now closing in fast on the school Long Jump record which has been held at 7.14m since 1965.

The holder is Hamish Robertson who kindly donated a trophy last summer for Sports Day - so Alessandro's progress is being watched with interest!
