Last week in Merchiston Juniors, the boys enjoyed an inspiring presentation from Olympic Silver Medallist, Lynsey Sharp. They took a trip to Edinburgh Castle for History and they competed the National Young Mathematicians’ Competition. The week ended with some Christmas shopping and Christmas decorations. Roll on next week!
