HSD pupils enjoy success in literary contest

Teams of F1 and F2 pupils from the school came 1st and 3rd in the North of Scotland Heat of the National Reading Champions Quiz, a UK-wide children’s literature contest for 10 to 14-year-olds.

Lining up against 18 other teams from schools from across the region, HSD’s Team 2 - Emily Baptie, Lucy Smith, Lucie Johnston, Freya Galvin - scored 54 points to win the heat, and with that, a place in June’s grand final.

They edged out Team 1 - Amy Leburn, Charlie Grewar, Rachel Eldho and Matthew Jamieson - who also performed fantastically well to finish in 3rd place, just two points behind.
