Our senior football team will be heading to Dundee on Wednesday of next week to compete in the North Finals of the Scottish Schools Soccer Sevens. They will be participating this year in brilliant new kit sponsored by John Maciver and Sons Crane Hire. We’d like to thank them for their kind sponsorship of the team. Mrs Maciver visited the school today to present the boys with the new kit.
In addition to this sponsorship, the team have received financial contributions from Sgoil a’ Bhac Parent Council, Back Football and Recreation Club, Loch a Tuath News and Back Community Council. Thank you everyone for your support of the team and we wish them the best of luck in next week’s competition.
A team of P6 pupils from Sgoil a’ Bhac were competing today in the Western Isles heat of the annual EuroQuiz competition. This year, eight teams from across Lewis, Harris and the Uists went head-to-head in the quiz that tests their knowledge of European geography, culture, history and language as well as the European Union.
The Sgoil a’ Bhac team did superbly well again this year, performing strongly in all the rounds. They finished in second place, just a few points behind Sgoil an Rubha. As the top two teams, they went head-to-head in the final, which Sgoil an Rubha went on to win 10-5.
Congratulations to the team from Sgoil an Rubha! This was the second year in a row that we’ve finished as runners-up in the competition.
