As we start another new day with sunshine, we are thinking of our Gaelic Medium boys who went off yesterday afternoon on the ferry with Dano and Mrs Maclennan. The boys are representing the Western Isles in the Cuach na Cloinne Finals today in Bught Park in Inverness.  Six teams have qualified to compete for the trophy this year. Our boys will be up against teams from Iochdar, Portree, Craighill (Tain), Bun Sgoil Ghaidhlig Loch Abair and Bun Sgoil Gaidhlig Glaschu primary schools.  We wish them well and know that they will do their very best. We will hear how they have got on later in the day.


Blythswood’s Shoebox Appeal

Grateful thanks must go to all those whose generosity meant that 102 Shoeboxes from Sgoil a’ Bhac  were loaded up into cars this afternoon to be taken to the collection point in Stornoway. There, they will be checked and packed ready for their onward journey to some of the poorest regions within Eastern Europe. This is a phenomenal effort on the part of pupils, parents and staff and our hope is that the Sgoil a’ Bhac shoeboxes will bring much needed comfort and joy to those who need it in the coming weeks.


We were absolutely delighted to have Rhona Matheson from Blythswood in school on Wednesday 11th October 2017 for a joint Assembly with Sgoil a’ Bhac and Tolsta Primary School. Rhona came to tell us all about the Shoebox Appeal for this year.

Shoebox leaflets were distributed to all pupils earlier in the month and already we are seeing them coming in. Please have your shoeboxes in school by Friday 27th October 2017
