Sad news: It is with regret we announce the passing of Richard Mowbray who died suddenly on 29 Nov 2019.
Funeral on Friday 13 December at 10.30 am at Clydebank Crematorium. Our thoughts are with Marilyn.
Congratulations We are delighted to congratulate all our Unit 5 candidates for passing their RSCDS teacher training exams.
