Motion text

That this House congratulates Calum Kettles, S1 pupil at Alva Academy, who has been selected to represent Scotland in an international fencing competition next month in Wroclaw, Poland; notes that Calum was awarded funding from the Rotary Club of Alloa to purchase fencing equipment, enabling him to take his place in the under-13 Scottish Fencing Team; further notes that Calum will represent his country for the first time following his success in competitions across Scotland, where he has consistently won bronze medals; and highlights the fact that Calum uses the skills and knowledge he has gained to assist and coach young fencers in Scotland and already instructs adult beginners who are almost twice his height and three times his age.
