Each year, Western Isles schools update their handbook for parents. The latest issue of the Sgoil a’ Bhac Handbook was released in January 2014. It can be downloaded in PDF format below or from the ‘Documents’ section of our website.
For a number of years, Sgoil a’ Bhac has been participating in the NHS Healthy Working Lives scheme. The purpose of this initiative is to encourage staff to regularly consider health issues and factors that affect healthy lifestyles such as exercise, diet, stress, illness etc.
Sgoil a’ Bhac were recently re-accredited for the Healthy Working Lives Silver Award. We hope to soon begin working towards achieving a Gold Award. Mrs C Macleod attended an awards presentation recently where she accepted the Silver Award on behalf of the school staff. We’d like to thank Mrs Macleod for her work in co-ordinating and promoting Sgoil a’ Bhac’s Healthy Working Lives programme.

Sgoil a’ Bhac held a special Open Day today for parents of children planning to start P1 in August 2014. We had a lot of parents visit the school to find out about Gaelic and English Medium Education. They were able to visit classrooms, speak to other parents and to current and former pupils.
Thank you to everyone who helped to organise and run the event and to all the parents who took the time to come and visit us today.
