Great running at Peffermill
Today the DAS Cross Country Squad did very well at the Scottish Disability Sports Cross Country Series 2 Event at Peffermill.
In the Girls 1K Amy Dignan came second with a silver medal and Chloe Ramsay came third with a bronze medal.
In the Girls 2K Louise Harley came first with a gold medal and Michelle Harley came second with a silver medal.
Great behaviour and participation from all pupils, good times despite a bitterly chilly wind!
National Museum of Edinburgh
DAS2/3 had an end of term trip to the National Museum of Edinburgh, visiting the Technology and Animal Galleries. We enjoyed sending up the hot air balloons, programming the robots and creating energy on the Energise Wheel.
DAS Christmas Fair
Fantastic turn out for the DAS Christmas fair on the 1st of December. Pupils took part in creating and selling some wonderful items raising just under £500.
Senior DAS pupils organised and held a Scottish social games afternoon which saw parents and pupils taking part in haggis drive a Scottish form of beetle drive and Scottish bingo in which players had to match famous Scottish icons to win, followed by tea, coffee, Irn-bru and some Scottish cuisine. The event was a huge success and was enjoyed by all.
