P 7 Cross Country Champions! 12.10.18

Well done to the runners in the South Highland Schools Cross Country Team. The boys came back with the trophy as Ross and Sam were placed 1st and 8th. Michael came in 5th so that pushed our points total up. The girls did very well too.

Thank you to the parent volunteers.

Substance Misuse experiments





As part of our topic work, we have been carrying out some experiments to find out the effects of smoking and alcohol on living things. This did not prove to be 100% successful but our predictions that the bean soaked in milk would grow best was correct.

We also mixed yeast, sugar and warm water and watched the balloon inflate with the production of CO2 gas as a by product of the fermentation process. We didn’t really like the yeasty smell.

Star Pupil of the Month

We are delighted to share the news about our first Star Pupil. Sophie is a diligent and hard worker who just gets on with everything setting a good example to everyone in class. Well done!

Good job!

An ancient Inverness ceremony – the Kirking of the Council – took place on Sunday, 9 September 2018.


Staff and Members of The Highland Council along with guests from the University of the Highlands and Islands and community councils joined the parade, led by the Royal British Legion Scotland (Inverness Branch) pipes and drums, and the City of Inverness Youth Pipe Band along with uniformed youth groups and school representatives. Also attending was the Mayor of Inverness’s twin town, St Valery en Caux, France, Mme Dominique Chauvel, and her deputy.
