Well Done Aimee!

Aimee Prize

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.

The purpose of this initiative is to encourage staff to regularly consider health issues and factors that affect healthy lifestyles such as exercise, diet, stress, illness etc.

Sgoil a’ Bhac were recently re-accredited for the Healthy Working Lives Silver Award. We hope to soon begin working towards achieving a Gold Award. Mrs C Macleod attended an awards presentation recently where she accepted the Silver Award on behalf of the school staff.  We’d like to thank Mrs Macleod for her work in co-ordinating and promoting Sgoil a’ Bhac’s Healthy Working Lives programme.
