Mark Deans – Scottish Open Water Swimmer

uplawmoor-38-2 uplawmoor-13-2 uplawmoor-24-2 uplawmoor-26-2The boys and girls were lucky enough to meet Mark Deans, who is a Scottish Open Water swimmer.    He talked to the boys and girls about his time in Australia where he was training for 3 months.  He said he preferred it to being in a pool as it was more challenging and exciting.  He told the children he even saw a shark during this training!

Mark has a true love for water if he’s not swimming you’ll find him by the sea kite surfing which is his favourite sporting activity (apart from swimming obviously)!

Mrs Gray gave P6/7 and P4/5 a tub of chocolates and P1-3 received a box of Haribos.  We had a wonderful afternoon and we hope Mrs Gray and her family enjoyed themselves.

We will miss you Mrs Gray!   By Luca P7
