Yesterday’s YPI final was a wonderful event. The quality of the presentations from S2 students was exceptional. There were at least 4 presentations that could have won the money for the selected charities and the judges were keen to split the funding, but we were under strict instructions that it could only go to one team. In the end, the Arran Mountain Rescue presentation was successful (F MacArthur, C Wood, A Mulholland, F Bunyan)
