Easter Assembly

We joined with members of the wider school community to celebrate the end of term and mark Easter.

We had an inclusive display from the Lord-Lieutenant’s Youth Award winning basketball team to highlight the importance of working as individuals and a team.

We were also able to celebrate the success of a number of different pupils.

Eight pupils from S5 have been presented with their Silver Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Completed over 6 months they were involved in many different activities to contribute to their volunteering, skills and physical sections. They included – amongst others – learning the chanter, coaching badminton, beach cleans, playing the saxophone, indoor rowing, archery, operating the PA system at Church, helping with Scouts, playing the piano and shooting. Well done Gregor, Roddy, Iain, Jack, Carys, Eilidh, Hannah and Leonie!

The award was presented by Roy MacGregor (Ross County) and Mrs Janet Bowen, Lord-Lieutenant of Ross and Cromarty, Skye and Lochalsh 

Nominated by their coach Mr Milner, the boys dedicated to training (including doing much of the coaching themselves) was highlighted. This resulted in them winning the Highland Senior Boys Basketball League in 2016, despite facing much larger schools through most of the competition. Some of the senior members have now left school but they are recruiting other seniors to step up and take their places.
