The pupil council wished to mark the occasion of Remembrance Day by creating a Poppy Trail within the school. They worked hard at break times to paint poppies that we could place round the school. Egg cartons were painted as well as paper plates, rolls of paper and even stones to help pupils and staff remember those who have sacrificed so much. In the photo you can get a wee glimpse of their hard work.

Miss Mackay’s class (EP3-4) and Miss Macleod’s class (GP3-4) came together to share their recent learning.
GP3-4 enjoyed telling the boys and girls from Miss Mackay’s class about the interesting buildings they researched from New Zealand.
EP3-4 were excited to share with the boys and girls from Miss Macleod’s class about the mission they had to design a spaceship using renewable fuels.
Sgoil A’ Bhac raised a staggering £324 for Sport Relief last Friday. We also had a lot of fun participating in the Sgoil A’ Bhac Looney Olympics!

Staff at Sgoil a’ Bhac were this week presented with a Gold Award following a successful Gold assessment under the Healthy Working Lives programme, which is delivered by NHS Health Scotland, a national NHS Board in collaboration with Scotland’s 14 local NHS Boards.
The NHS’s Assessor Jenny Hill stated that “The assessment gave me a great insight into the work of Sgoil a’ Bhac and allowed the opportunity to see the clear and continual commitment of the school to a healthy, safer workplace.” She added “This is a great achievement for the school as other than NHS Western Isles, there are currently no other Gold Award holders in Lewis and Harris and only one other in Uist. As recipients of the Gold Award the staff have demonstrated a clear commitment to promoting and developing Healthy Working Lives as an integral part of Sgoil a’ Bhac. This has been further evidenced by their written health, safety and wellbeing strategy that addresses all aspects of Healthy Working Lives.”
