We will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday 28th February to help raise funds for our football team to travel to Dundee to compete in the North Finals of the Scottish Soccer Sevens Championship. We would like to ask that any pupils coming in to school without uniform on that day make a donation to the trip fund. In addition to the non-uniform day, we hope to have a bake stall operating.
Sgoil a’ Bhac will be representing the Western Isles in this competition and will be playing against teams from Inverness, Aberdeen, Perth, Dundee and Skye. The finals will be held at Dundee University on Thursday 20th March. It’s a major achievement for our team to have qualified for this stage of the competition and we want to support them by helping with fundraising for some of the costs.
We are starting to get very excited about our school trip in June. This week we got to vote to decide what six activities we will do while we are there. There were lots of different options so now we just have to wait to see if we managed to get our top choices!
EP7 are organising a film afternoon to raise funds for the trip. We are currently doing some market research to help us finalise the details. GP7 will also be helping us out on the day to organise everything. They hope to organise another fundraising activity in April.
Our Parent Council raised an amazing £845.76 on Saturday with an all-day bag-packing stint in Tesco. The Parent Council and the school would like to thank everyone who volunteered to help on the day. All your efforts are much appreciated and the funds raised made all that work worthwhile.
