Taylor, Kallan, Alistair, William and Shaunie (reserve) recently represented Raploch Primary at the Stirling Schools Rotary Club Quiz.  The questions were very tricky (Mrs Ferguson didn’t know some of the answers!) but the pupils worked well as a team and performed well on the night.  They had their lucky mascot with them – the ‘Raploch Rascal’.
