Meghann, Katie, Shae, Ewan, Lily, Connor, Jake, Eibhlinn and Corin represented Doon Academy at the pan Ayrshire final of the Sir Tom Hunter challenge at the West Coast Accelerator.  The pupils were a credit to the school and pitched their innovative idea for mental health board games to be used in PSE. 

With some extremely strong competition from other schools, we triumphed again and the pupils were awarded joint first place with Largs Academy.
