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.
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.
This year, we will be hosting two seasonal concert performances. The main school concert ‘Cinderella’ will take place on Tuesday 16th December at 7.00pm.

In addition, we will be holding a special ‘Seall Seo’ performance of ‘Santa agus na Paidhs aig Gordon Diesel’, a Christmas play written and performed by our Gaelic Medium pupils in conjuction with Proiseact na Ealan. This performance begins at 7.30pm on Thursday 18th December. Tickets are free-of-charge but a collection will be made at the door for School Funds.
