Simon Knight

24th July 1986 - 20th April 1996

Simon came to Drumlanrig School when he was 5 years old. He lived with his Mum and Dad at Lovell Court, Hawick and he enjoyed playing football.

One sunny Saturday afternoon, he was playing football on the banks of the River Teviot near the Plum Pool when his ball rolled into the river. Simon went into the river to retrieve his football but was swept under the surface by the strong current.

Despite valiant efforts of members of the public, Simon drowned. He was only 9 years old.

Simon was an only child who spent much of his time collecting money in aid of Multiple Sclerosis from which his mum suffered. After his death, Simon's Mum and Dad presented a cup to be awarded three times each year to a pupil who displays good citizenship.

In this way, the name of Simon Knight lives on in our school.
