Rugby at Murrayfield

A small contingent of rugby players from Dalziel travelled to Murrayfield on Saturday 21st November for the international between Scotland and Australia. Despite the cold weather and the rain, the boys were on fine form, and returned home with croaky voices from all of the singing and chanting.

Public Speaking

The annual Public Speaking competition took place in the school last week. The event is always a great success and this year's competition lived up to all expectations. A large crowd turned up to watch the event and enjoyed the evening from start to finish.

Staff vs Pupils Football

Dalziel Park played host to the annual staff versus senior pupils football game last week. The first half started fairly even until Deane Brown scored the first goal followed by David Watson for a second, ending the first half 0-2 to the pupils.
