"As we lead up to the beginning of the Olympics we were fortunate enough to have a visit from Eilish McColgan.
Eilish gave up valuable time to inspire and motivate our pupils. She talked about the importance of the Olympic Values of respect, dedication, friendship, courage and selflessness to name a few and how important these values are to have for anything you do in life. She encouraged the children to be involved in lots of different sports, have a healthy life style and be committed to their school work.
She emphasised the importance to the children of setting personal goals and working hard to achieve these.
The children asked interesting questions and were delighted when Eilish presented certificates at Dens Road's School Praise Assembly.
One child in primary 2 said it was the best assembly she has ever been at.
We would like to say a great big thank you to Eilish from all of us at Dens Road P.S. and we wish her every success on reaching the London 2012 Olympics."
