S6 pupils at Dunbar Grammar bade an emotional farewell to the school as they left on exam leave before finishing their time at the school.

A leavers' ceremony was held in the assembly hall with a number of speakers and some fantastic musical performances from pupils.

One pupil, Natasha Hilferty, stunned the crowd with a beautiful rendition of Adele’s ‘When We Were Young' while there were terrific performances from pupils Lucy Kilfara and Connor Carmichael.

A sixth year band featuring Alexander Thomson, Sasha McIntosh, Lewis Peacock and Alistair Zochowski also delivered an electric performance.

After the ceremony, pupils (and staf) enjoyed a bouncy castle in the school's atrium.

Claire Slowther, headteacher at the school, said: “Our class of 2023 have had quite a rollercoaster of a time at school, with two years being affected by Covid.

“However, their resilience, determination and positive spirit has seen them go from strength to strength.

“The last week has been so lovely in school. Students have been saying emotional farewells to their teachers.

“Today we had a wonderful ceremony which was attended by parents, carers and family members.

“The student-led ceremony saw each student receive a certificate and have their destination shared. The range of varied and exciting destinations was incredible.

“We also had four brilliant musical performances and various memory montages.

“After the ceremony students had a bouncy party in our atrium. The atmosphere was so celebratory and positive.

“I am immensely proud of the Class of 2023, they are hardworking, committed and kind young people and it has been a pleasure to watch them develop over the last six years.”
