Former pupil Deborah Kerr will be competing for Team GB in the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo

On behalf of the Dalziel community we would like to take this opportunity to congratulate former pupil Deborah Kerr who has achieved the ultimate goal in her sport and will be competing for Team GB in the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo.

This is the culmination of an enormous amount of hard work, spirit and determination by Deborah herself and her coaching and support staff.

It is our understanding that Deborah is the first person from Motherwell since around the 1950s to qualify for an Olympic Games and as her former school we are very proud of her.

As a school community we would like to pass on our congratulations to Deborah and her family.
