On the 28th of November, 5 schools; AHS, Brae High School, Aith Junior High School, Sandwick Junior High School and Baltasound Junior High School all gathered at the Scalloway games hall to compete in the S2 Inter Schools Badminton Competition.

Football Friendly Match: Anderson High School vs. Mid Yell Junior High School


The 60/40 hosted an entertaining game of football as Mid Yell JHS visited the Anderson High School on Friday the 9th of November. The teams played a very competitive first half with plenty of chances at both ends. The deadlock was finally broken just before half time by AHS forward Marta Leslie. In the second half, both teams continued to work hard but the AHS slowly started to create more chances against a young but determined Mid Yell side. The AHS scored six more times in the second half through Tash Matoba (2), Tegan Hendren (2), Lois Philips and Kayla Shearer to make the final score 7-0. Both teams should be commended on the effort, ability and determination displayed throughout the match. A special thanks to referee Ross Nicholson who did an excellent job overseeing a game played in a very sporting manner.

Scottish Rugby Visit

Anderson High School had the pleasure of welcoming the Scottish Rugby Union into school last Friday as part of their tour around the country with the Calcutta Cup.  Chris Patterson, ex player and current leading points scorer for Scotland accompanied the cup.  Two of our S3 P.E. classes experienced a coaching session with Chris on Friday afternoon and had a great session.  Our thanks go to Active Schools for organising the visit and supporting the sessions that were held.

What a great day today with our S2 sports day.  Unfortunately we were not blessed with some of the fine weather we have been having lately however, the day was still a great success.  There were some excellent individual results as well as collective efforts from our four house teams which were resurrected from previous years – Hermaness, Noss, Fitful and Ronas.  Photos below  of the winning team and individual winners.
