Hawick High School Golden Ticket Winner

On Tuesday 25th August, to mark the opening of the new Borders Railway every school pupil in the Scottish Borders was given the chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ which will give them the chance to ride on one of the first passenger trains on the Borders Railway.

At Hawick High School there was an extended registration and every pupil was given a chocolate bar which inside could hold this very special ‘Golden Ticket’. There was one ‘Golden Ticket’ in each schools batch of chocolate bars and Hawick High Schools winner was Carly Douglas in S5.

Also pictured above is pupils who won a literacy token which entitles them to a free book.
