Ex-Muirfield student Tom Burton wins GOLD at Rio!

We are all very proud of our ex-student, Tom Burton, who won gold at the Rio Olympics in the Men's Laser sailing. Not only is this Muirfield High School's first ever Olympic champion, but Tom's achievement has meant he has won Australia's first sailing Olympic gold medal. Watching the race on TV, I never realised how tactical the race was; I always thought it was first past the post. How naïve of me! It was a thrilling race to watch. All of us are proud and happy for both Tom and his mother, Lynne Burton. Lynne is a very much loved... Read more
