Earlier this term, our Design Technology & Engineering department released a competition for the Prep Schools to make prosthetic hands out of only cardboard, straws and string with the goal for the hand to be able to pick up a Merchiston stress ball. We had fabulous entries from St. Mary's, Ardvreck, Cargifield, Mowden, Aysgarth and Belhaven.
The standard from all entrants was superb and exceeded expectations! The entries were judged by our UVI boys and St. Mary's nudged ahead to be hailed the winners, well done to all in Form 5 who took part!
Our Shell and UVI boys made a fabulous hand trophy with the help of Dr Nugent!
