A collection was held in aid of school funds at Thursday night’s Gaelic ‘Seall Seo’ concert, which raised a total of £245.83.
We would like to thank all the attendees at both concerts for the support and generosity shown towards Bethesda, the Parent Council and the school.
The special cake baked by our retiring school cook, Mary Stewart, was raffled at our two recent concert nights. The draw was conducted this morning by Mary herself and the winner was Mrs Joey Murray. In addition to the raffle raising £179.00, the collection for Bethesda took in £249.38, making a total donation to Bethesda of £428.38. We will arrange for this donation to be presented to Bethesda early in the new year.

Phone Line Update – 16.12.14 10.30am
Full telephone service has been restored to the school. We can now be contacted using our 820230 number as usual. The back-up 820866 number will no longer be manned.
BT engineers have now been able to restore service to the school’s back-up phone line, 820866. There is an on-going major fault on our main line that may take several more days to resolve. In the mean-time, we are working to now have all calls redirected to our back-up number.
If you need to contact the school office, please call 01851 820866 or e-mail email@example.com until further notice.
We would like to thank Tolsta School staff who have been receiving calls and passing messages to Sgoil a’ Bhac during this outage.
A number of pupils from Sgoil a’ Bhac entered our MSP Alasdair Allan’s Christmas Card design competition. We were delighted to hear that the winner was Ellie Macdonald from GM7. Alasdair Allan attended our Christmas Assembly last Friday to present Ellie with her prize and a copy of the printed card. The card with her design has now been sent out across Scotland and beyond.
BT has now been able to identify the fault that has caused the failure of the school’s phonelines. A vital piece of equipment that manages the phonelines has been damaged in the recent powercuts and lightning strikes.
BT engineers are unable, at this stage, to give us a timescale for the fault to be fixed. In the mean-time, the school’s main 820230 number will be automatically re-routed to Tolsta School and they will arrange for information to be forwarded to Sgoil a’ Bhac. Alternatively, the school can be contacted via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
As our Cashless Catering system is updated with payments over the phoneline, we are unable to monitor pupil accounts during the period of this fault. Pupils will continue to have meal costs deducted daily and accounts will be fully updated when the issue has been resolved.
Our apologies for the inconvenience that this issue has caused and we hope to have it resolved as soon as possible.
