Pupils at Dalkeith High School raised £540 with several activities including a bake sale and a dress down day during Dyslexia awareness week recently.

The S3 and S6 pupils from the school who raised money for Dyslexia Scotland were joined by members of the charity for the cheque handover.

The theme of this year’s Dyslexia Awareness Week was ‘Making Sense of Dyslexia’, and there were many events taking place around Midlothian to mark the week, as well as the chance for people to wear a blue ribbon to show their support of the awareness campaign.
