As everyone will know, this term’s topic work is focusing on engineering – transport (Class 1) and computing (Class 2). Earlier this week, I discovered that Mrs MacPherson’s dad was actually a leading figure in designing and building the A9 – which opened – very scarily – the year of my birth. It was an exceptional feat of engineering, and I know Mrs MacPherson is very proud of her dad – and so she should be. The picture above is of him at the opening of the road. Amazing!
