Dunblane High School was very fortunate to be given the opportunity to have “Little Eye” perform in school. Little Eye are an upcoming Scottish band currently touring Scottish schools with an anti- drugs message. They are supporting the anti-drugs charity DARE and have been trained by the charity to deliver the message. The band have supported Olly Murs and Alesha Dickson on tour and recently won Clyde 1 In Demand – Band of the Year.
The band performed some of their songs, delivered the anti-drugs message, with a question and answer session, and finished with an autograph session for the pupils. The main message of the band was to make the right decisions in life and to live a healthy lifestyle.
The performance was very much enjoyed by the whole school – pupils and staff!
