Meet and Beat the Olympians

‘Meet and Beat the Olympians’ – National Curling Day

Monday 15 November was National Curling Day.

S3 pupils are given the opportunity to select Curling as their Winter sport option and it has been particularly popular this year.

Yesterday, pupils took part in a ‘Meet and Beat the Olympians’ with Jennifer Dodds and former pupil Bruce Mouat, both were recently selected to represent Team GB at next year’s Winter Olympics in Beijing.

Pupils met the athletes, threw a few stones with them and gained some tips.

Curling is currently run as an S3 games option with 15 pupils taking part on a weekly basis, with the aim to add this as an S4-S6 games option next year. We look forward to seeing more Heriot’s names appearing in International selections in years to come.
