Playstation World Cup

‘The final of the Hermitage Academy Playstation World Cup took place today 25th June and was won by the underdog Aidan Wilson (S4). Aidan took on Reece Grant (also S4) and his Belgium team won the final 2-0 against England. This was closely contested as has been the case the whole tournament which started with 32 pupils and teachers back at the beginning of June. Much fun has been had by all and more importantly this event raised £225 for the Helensburgh and Lomond Young Carers association which does some great work for many pupils within our school. A big big thanks to all who took part in this event and those who supported the event throughout the 3 weeks of its duration. A follow-up fundraiser will be held next session for the Champions League where the fans favourite Mr McCluskey will be looking to achieve some silverware. Well done to everyone who was involved in this event’
