This is a new memorial to Jane Haining unveiled in Dumfries Academy in September 2015. The artist is Andrew Adair.

This article on the unveiling was published in the Dumfries Courier on 9 Oct 2015. I hope to arrange a visit to get some good photos.

My promised photos of this memorial are 'still on the way'. Anyone who has tried to arrange photography in a school will appreciate the problems.

Only briefly mentioned in the caption to the photo on the above article. The House system was re-introduced in Dumfries Academy within the last year or two and one of the houses is named Haining house in Jane's honour.
