On Friday the 24th of March we had lots of fun and games going on in Sgoil a’ Bhac. We raised a staggering £473.00 for the 2017 Comic Relief Appeal. Pupil Council would like to thank everyone who contributed. You can see from the pictures below some of the things we got up to.
UPDATE: It was confirmed this afternoon that Sgoil a’ Bhac are indeed Western Isles Champions and will go on to complete in the next round in Dingwall in May.
A team of our P7 pupils took part in the National Rotary Club Quiz for Schools this week. This is the first time that the event has been held in the Western Isles. We were delighted to hear that our team were victorious in the Lewis and Harris heat and came back to school with the trophy, beating a number of teams from other island schools.We’d all like to say a huge well done to our P7 team, Luke, Tom, Hannah and Cara.
We will find out later this week if they’ve managed to qualify for the North Finals of this national event, which will be held in Dingwall next term.
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.
