John Rae

Shortly before Christmas, P3/4 went to visit the Hall of Clestrain, John Rae’s childhood home. They’ve been teaching me about this amazing Orcadian and famous arctic explorer since then. I am delighted to announce that Mathilde Pesci and Caitlin Murray have designed a flag that has been chosen to join a recreation of John Rae’s most famous journey later this year. For more information on the expedition, click here. Below is the winning design chosen by the expedition leader himself, David Reid. Well done girls!
