Paralymic Torch

On Saturday 13th October between 9.30 and 11.30, the Paralympic torch is coming to the Sainsbury’s store at Darnley. This is your chance to have your photo taken along with the torch.

Sainsbury’s were very keen to ensure Mearns Castle pupils had this opportunity given our very close connections with all things Paralympic!

Andrew Swims Superbly in Paralympic Final

Andrew Mullan broke his personal best twice today in London and finished fourth in the men’s 50 butterfly S5.

First he finished second in his heat in a time of 39.69 and then he finished fourth in the final with an even better time of 39.54.

As you can see above Andrew narrowly missed out on the bronze medal.

Andrew has another chance of getting a medal in the 50 butterfly which takes place tomorrow.

GO Andrew!!!!!
