On Saturday 21 April I attended the Edinburgh Local Mod which, once again, took place at Liberton High School. It was wonderful to see the entries in the competitions going from strength to strength, especially in the upper Primary stages and in the Secondary competitions. It was particularly pleasing to see the JGHS pupils performing to such a high standard. I thought the JGHS clarsach ensemble was outstanding. Many, many thanks to all the teachers and parents who work so hard together to ensure that the children are well prepared. Well done to our hard working pupils too!
The Royal National Mòd 2012 takes place in Dunoon from 12–19 October. As last October in Stornoway, I hope to see many of our pupils taking part in the various competitions.
