Aimee from EP6 was recently awarded a prize for an art competition organised by NHS Western Isles. Our pupils attended a special drama about the risks and dangers of smoking and then designed anti-smoking posters, which were then entered into the competition. Aimee was commended for communicating a clear message and creating a quality design.
She is pictured above receiving her certificate and prize from Mr Macleod and Jeanne Mackay from NHS Western Isles. Also pictured is another prize-winner from Stornoway Primary.

A very successful Scholastic Bookfair was run by GP6/7 as a Scholastic Business School. It went beyond just literacy and it encouraged the pupils to develop real-world skills including financial awareness, creative thinking, responsibility and teamwork. Pupils had to apply for positions by filling in application forms, submitting CVs and writing letters. This year the total rewards came to £510.05 which will be spent to stock up our library.
Pupils were responsible for the advertising, displaying, selling, ordering and totalling up the money each day. Alongside the bookfair pupils, as events co-ordinators, organised competitions. Below is Eilidh, winner of the cake competition The cake was baked and decorated by Ellie GP7 tying in with the Book Fair theme.
