Higher Fieldtrip to Nairn
Yesterday 58 Senior Geography pupils carried out a full day of fieldwork in order to gather data to complete their Higher assignment. Pupils spent time on Nairn Beach carrying out a sand dune survey and also in Inverness and Nairn doing Human Geography studies. Embracing modern technology pupils used mobile phone apps to help record decibel levels when doing an environmental quality survey and an app that measured altitude on the sand dunes. Well done to all pupils for their hard work and also for how they conducted themselves throughout the day.
S2 pupils in the Geography Department have completed these brilliant earthquake proof house designs as homework over the October break. Huge effort all round.
A number of pupils were representing our school at the National Mod in Stornoway over the holidays and they did very well. A list of competitors and prize winners can be found on the Gaelic department blog page – https://gaidhliginbhirnis.wordpress.com/ ‘S math a rinn iad!
We are aware of reports of clowns in various places in the community; the police are aware, have been in school today and are investigating.
Pupils are reminded that Culduthel Woods are out of bounds at interval. The woods are also out of bounds at lunchtimes unless you are going home for lunch and taking a route through them.
At the S1 Halloween Disco on the 31st of October clowns will not be admitted to the disco, or for that matter, anywhere on the school campus.
During the October Break Police Scotland will be carrying out High Visibility Patrols within Educational Establishments to deter any Anti-Social Behaviour/ Vandalism incidents occurring. Any persons found within the grounds of Schools will have details noted and a letter may be sent to parents of those under sixteen.
Please note that this Friday, the 7th of October, will be a Dress As You Please Day to raise funds for the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal. Please bring £1.’
