Dunbar SciFest Thanks
A huge thank you to the S6 volunteers from Dunbar Grammar School who assisted at Dunbar SciFest last weekend.
The organisers and event providers were very impressed with their maturity, efficiency and general willingness to help. The festival itself was a great success, attracting over two and a half thousand visitors. Such an event can only work well if there are volunteers to support it and the students involved should be very pleased with the part they played in making SciFest such a success.
It’s great to know that the students represented the school so well in the local community again this year.
