Swimming teams from St Andrews and Balwearie High Schools met with swimming star Sharron Davies, at the inter-schools McVities Scotsplash ‘96 Challenge in May of that year.

The Olympian, and lest we forget, Gladiator, was host for the event, where along with the pool events, there was a fancy dress competition for the pupils to come dressed as McVities biscuits.

The first prize was won by Balwearie.

Were you one of the pupils? And, more importantly, did you dress up as a biscuit?!!
