A Word from Mrs Ingham, Head Teacher

24 February 2017

Firstly, some sporting news about a former pupil: Iain Trotter. He writes, “I've recently turned professional at boxing after a 50 fight amateur career, winning various titles and representing Scotland. I'm now looking to build a solid base of support at home and to spread word about my upcoming, televised, second pro fight on the 24th of March at Meadowbank Stadium, on Josh Taylor's Commonwealth title undercard. Tickets are priced £40, £60 and £100. I started training at 13 and fighting at 17. I had 50 amateur fights winning 35, boxing throughout Britain. I earned a silver medal in the Scottish Novice Championship and then went on to win gold in the Scottish Intermediate Championship, followed by two golds in the Eastern District Championships. I was the first senior champion out of Haddington and was part of the Scotland boxing team representing them. I am now trained by Billy Nelson who trained various champions, the most notable would be current World Champion, Ricky Burns.” It’s wonderful to hear about Iain’s success and I look forward to hearing how he does.

The results for this year’s East Lothian Cross Country are now in. Congratulations to everyone that represented the school in what proved to be a keenly contested event. The staff that went in support of the Knox Running Team were very impressed by the general level of effort and of how supportive the team members were of each other.
