Gold award

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, I thought you and your read­ers might be in­ter­ested in the pic­ture be­low from ear­lier this month. Gra­ham and Bar­bara Tinto, for­mer Ar­ran GPs now liv­ing in Perthshire, were de­lighted to be in at­ten­dance with Mark, now 25, and others from an adults with sup­port needs group at Holy­rood for his Duke of Ed­in­burgh gold award pre­sen­ta­tion, hav­ing com­pleted his bronze and sil­ver sec­tions while at Ar­ran High School (AHS) with Ms Hogg and Ms Man­son.

Of ex­tra Ar­ran in­ter­est, HRH Prince Ed­ward was es­corted through­out the pro­ceed­ings by Barry Fisher, for­mer pupil of AHS and son of Angie Fisher, Whit­ing Bay, erst­while pri­mary head teacher on the is­land. As many will be aware, Barry is di­rec­tor of Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award Scot­land.

Af­ter four years at an ASN Col­lege, in Shrop­shire, Mark is now well set­tled into his rou­tine as a day at­tendee at Cor­benic Cam­phill Com­mu­nity close to Amul­ree, be­tween Dunkeld and Aber­feldy, where the fam­ily have lived since 2015.

Yours, Gra­ham Tinto, Dunkeld.
