Medals and Trophies were presented by Olympic and World Medallist Maria Lyle and East Lothian PE Lead Officer Marion Barclay, who is sadly leaving us at the end of this term.
Marion has worked for East Lothian Council Education Department for over 30 years. There isn’t a school in the region that she hasn’t been involved with at some time. She has inspired and enthused not just the children in the schools and early year’s settings, but also the staff and will be missed by everyone who has been touched by her passion for physical activity and education.
