Driving Presentation

On Tuesday 13th March, S5 went to a driving presentation at the Odeon in Ayr.  The presentation was extremely hard hitting and made a big impact on everyone.  Although very sad, the message that reckless driving wrecks lives was firmly put across and, overall, the presentation was very worthwhile.
