Russell Jones Visit and the Camanachd Cup!

Russell Jones from the Camanachd association was doing some shinty coaching at PPS recently and he took along the Camanachd Cup, which was won by Kingussie in 2014 with him. Pictures show pupils with Russell and the trophy.

Skye won the Cup in 1990 and also a picture of Mr. Finlayson along with Charlotte Gordon and Holly Maclean, whose fathers were also part of the cup winning team.
