UPDATE: It was confirmed this afternoon that Sgoil a’ Bhac are indeed Western Isles Champions and will go on to complete in the next round in Dingwall in May.
A team of our P7 pupils took part in the National Rotary Club Quiz for Schools this week. This is the first time that the event has been held in the Western Isles. We were delighted to hear that our team were victorious in the Lewis and Harris heat and came back to school with the trophy, beating a number of teams from other island schools.We’d all like to say a huge well done to our P7 team, Luke, Tom, Hannah and Cara.
We will find out later this week if they’ve managed to qualify for the North Finals of this national event, which will be held in Dingwall next term.
Our winning team with Mr Maclennan and Mr Woods who organised the quiz.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Sport Relief activities last Friday. It was a very enjoyable day, the sun shone and all the children had a fantastic time while helping to raise money for a very worthy cause.
The total raised was £440.14
Thank you to all the parents who donated sponsor money, baking and came along to spectate on the day.
Following feedback from parents, we have updated and made changes to the form used to notify the school of intentions to withdraw children for planned short periods for holidays, family events, sports participation etc.
The form now includes guidance notes for parents that include information about the process and how such absences are categorised. The revised form has been added to the ‘School Forms’ page of the website and can also be downloaded using the link below.
Notification to Withdraw – Sgoil a’ Bhac Mar 16
G1-2 did a water focused topic at the beginning of Term 3. The children suggested giving money to children in deprived countries who don’t have clean water to drink. As a class we decided to do a sponsored walk and silence to raise money for UNICEF. The children walked 2.2 miles this morning and then participated in a silence for 1 hour 20 mins!! Didn’t they do well! Some parents joined us for the walk and Finlay’s dad drove the support car for us. We are overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity…..we have raised almost £600!!!
We started at the school!
