Eòin‘s trip by kayak to Isle Maree.
Even though it is small, there aren’t many places as important or as precious in the culture of the Gael. I myself had heard a lot about it, but the divide between legend and truth wasn’t at all clear. Furthermore, there was a long and dangerous journey ahead if I was to follow the heroes of our past.

Mr Peter Jaroz of the Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust came to Gairloch High School in December; to present three S6 pupils, Roddy Macrae, Jack Wright and Sean Quinn, with OnePlus5 Smartphones (worth approximately £500 each) as a reward for working in their own time to develop an App for the Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust.
Receiving the new phones will be a great chance for us all to progress with our careers as we can keep better communication with peers and other members of the work force. This job has given us an incredible amount of experience in working in the real world, having to meet deadlines and to work through all the problems that may have arisen along the way. These new and more developed transferrable skills will help all of us in our future careers and are rare in the work environment.
We would all hope to see future collaborations between Gairloch High School and Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust so more people will be able to benefit from it in the same way we have.
We would like to thank Kevin Ginty for providing experience and knowledge in areas where we previously had none.
We would also like to thank Peter Jarosz and Dr Close for bringing the project to us and allowing us to take it on.
We really appreciate having this unique opportunity given to us.
Thank you once again,Roddy MacRae, Jack Wright and Sean Quinn
The National 4/5 Modern Studies pupils visited the Scottish Parliament recently. They had the privilege to attend First Ministers Question Time in the debating chamber, contribute to an enquiry of the Justice Committee and engage with some of our local MSP’s, Gail Ross, Edward Mountain and Maree Todd.
As always, the trip was much enjoyed and worthwhile and our thanks go out to the wonderful staff at Holyrood who always go out of their way to make our Parliament visits so memorable.
‘Thanks to all who came to the Senior School Exhibition on Thursday evening. Your support is very much appreciated. We had a great turnout and sold a record 34 calendars!
There are lots of photos from the event, taken by Evander Duncan (S6) on Flickr.
There is a comment book alongside the exhibition which will be in the Library for the next couple of weeks if you’d like to add something. We’d appreciate your feedback!
As soon as we rowers entered the sports centre the competition was in, we already knew the bar was set high. Everyone was nervous for their individual competitions bus as soon as we began our timed rows our mind was set on each stroke and every meter we could squeeze in. All of us were very supportive of each other-so much we’d practically lost our voices by the end of the day!
By the time it was our team rows, everyone still had all their energy and was either yelling, edging us on or actually taking part in the competitive 1000m team row. The atmosphere during team rows was fantastic!
I think I can speak on behalf of everyone saying our months of hard work paid off. An experience none of us will ever forget! Thank you to Mrs Hildrey and Fiona for all the support, driving us down and of course for even putting up with all the hassle over the Bluetooth and the music!
