At the end of the summer term, pupils, staff, parents and guests gathered at Sgoil a’ Bhac for the annual prize-giving ceremony and celebration of achievement.
We had an excellent attendance of parents and our special guests included Mr Fred Wildridge who presented this year’s prizes; Calum Macdonald, Parent Council Chairperson; our local councillor, Donald Crichton; Rev. Calum Iain Macleod and student David Macdonald.
We were delighted to be joined by members of the Sgoil a’ Bhac Memories Book Committee, who were in attendance for the first presentation of a trophy in their name. The prize, was awarded for excellence in local studies of the Back district. (history, geography or culture) As well as a trophy, the winner received a financial prize.
Children were awarded prizes for sports, citizenship, leadership and academic achievement. In addition, this year saw the introduction of new Achievement Prizes for each Gaelic and English year-group sponsored by our Parent Council.
The audience were entertained by an amazing whole-school performance of ‘Caledonia’ and our folk group and psalm precenting group also performed excellently. The ceremony concluded with the awarding of Dux of the School for 2015.
