  • Hello. My name is Darron Dunbar and this slide presentation caught my eye. I noticed it was from 2009 and then I also noticed you hoped to open the new school August of 2011. Thats now! I thought 'How's that for timing?' and am curious if it all worked out and if the school is, indeed opening this month. If so here's wishing you best of luck in the new facility (it looks beautiful in the drawings) and I just know you will have many happy years educating the children of the wonderful town (and wonderfully named!) Dunbar, Scotland. Cheers!
