On the 3rd of June 2015 some pupils from Dunoon Grammar School took part in Scottish Disability Sports National Junior Athletics tournament in Grangemouth. Competitors from all over the country gather to race against each other. This is the fifth time that DGS pupils have participated.
Each competitor had three events which included 60m, 100m, shot putt, standing long jump and running long jump. The day was bright, windy and cold and perfect for competing.
DGS pupils performed very well bringing home 8 gold, 2 silver and 3 bronze medals. The pupils worked very well together, supporting and encouraging each other in all of the races. They were a credit to our school and community and are looking forward to next year.
