The school received notification this morning of the success of two of our former pupils. Jennifer Paul and Victoria Thompson (previously Benson), organised a charity ball on Saturday night, 19th August, in the Marine Hotel. They raised a fantastic £2402 for Diabetes,UK. This charity was chosen as it is has some personal significance for Victoria as she has been diabetic since she was five. They also had one of our new and talented S1 pupils, Andrew Pattison, playing the pipes for all the guests on arrival. The ball was a great success and both would like to thank all who attended and donated to this worthy cause. Marr College is very proud of these young ladies.
