Today marks the 100 days to go to completion mark for the new school. So, 100 calendar days from today the new building is due to be commissioned and completed.

Morrisons are still reporting that the building is on schedule and that it will be ready 100 days from now. Already a lot of the fixed furniture is in place. Most of the learning walls are in the teaching rooms (with the exception of a handful on the second and ground floors), the HE kitchens are complete apart from the cookers, work has started on fitting out the Science labs and all the other furniture has been ordered and is being or already has been manufactured.  By the end of March/beginning of April the building should have water, heat and power to all areas and commissioning of systems should have begun.

A group set up to challenge negative attitudes towards maths wants to hear the views of parents’ and young people. The Making Maths Count expert group, established by  Education Secretary Angela Constance, has launched a short online questionnaire to find out how people feel about maths and how they use their maths skills. The group, which brings together expertise from industry, academia and science, has been tasked with identifying which factors can create negative attitudes towards maths, before making its recommendations on how to improve the nation’s enthusiasm for and participation in the subject. Teachers, parents, carers and young people are all encouraged to contribute their thoughts as part of the group’s call for evidence.

Further information and the online questionnaire is at www.gov.scot/makingmathscount.

S3 SCILT Languages Brunch – Gaelic and Modern Languages


A visit to Scilt’s Business Brunch held at the Kingsmills on Tuesday 26th January has gone down very well with S3 pupils. Inverness Royal Academy was allocated 20 spaces – 10 Gaelic and 10 Modern Languages – at the event which aimed to promote language learning among pupils. Presentations and workshops were run in order to encourage pupils to view languages as an asset when applying for jobs. With the added bonus of tea, coffee and bacon rolls, the day has been highly praised by those who attended, with many saying they are now more likely to continue with language as they progress through the school.


Photos and reviews of the event by the S3 Gaelic pupils can be read on the Gaelic department blog page – https://gaidhliginbhirnis.wordpress.com/
