Thank you to Mr Page for arranging some positive messages for our pupils from some of his ex team mates. Thank you to Rhys McCabe (Queen of the South), Jason Kerr (St Johnstone Captain), Gregor Buchanan (Queen of the South) and Shaun Hutchinson (Millwall) for taking the time to help create a special video for Moffat Academy and Beattock Primary School.

Hope Blamire

Continuing the theme of 'Express Yourself' today we are very grateful to artist Hope Blamire for discussing with us her passion for art and the great outdoors. Hope has some wonderful advice about taking note of what is around us. Her paintings capture the beauty of Scotland's West Coast and she is an inspiration to many. Thank you so much Hope.
