On Sunday Rafa did his 10th Junior Parkrun. 

The Edinburgh Junior Parkrun is for 5- 14 year olds. It is a free, volunteer event held at the Meadows every Sunday morning- and a great way to get kids excited about being active. It is a 2km run.

Well Run Rafa.

If you achieve something outside school, a sporting achievment, a show or cultural event, and you want to share in our WIDER ACHIEVEMENTS section then send the photos to the school admin email address titled FAO Mr Bennett and with a few words explaining the event. We are always proud of the amazing things our Dalry students (and sometimes teachers) achieve outside school!

Have You Achieved Something Special Outside of School….

If one of the children in the Dalry community has achieved something special outside of school, from sporting success to chess, from environmental work to volunteering, or even an especially interesting activity, we love to hear about it in school.

If you think it’s worth a shout out here on the website as well then either talk to Mr Bennett if you see him or send an email and photo or two adressed to FAO Mr Bennett to the school’s admin email address.

Wider Achievements are celebrated in news posts which are also filtered in the wider achievments menu of the website.
