The cloudy day and showers did not dampen the spirits and fun for us all at the Summer Fete. Parents, family and community members came along to spend their money and support the fantastic event organised by the Parent Partnership. Pupils also took part, organising their stalls, with everything from hook a duck, nail painting to selling popcorn. The Parent Partnership have surpassed their own target and raised the amazing sum of £4050! Wow!
Here are just a few of the boys and girls who take part in hockey training every week, coached by several Mums. This group have just recently played against much older boys and girls at the Ross-shire Hockey Club. They were fantastic in representing the school and gaining experience. They are looking forward to playing against other schools in the area.
We have had a super second day here at Alltnacriche! Today we were split into our groups. We enjoyed lots of activities like zip slide, ropes course, orienteering, shelter building and lots more! They were great fun and one group even made mud beards!
Tomorrow some of us are going to water sports and others are doing other fun activities like archery, trail biking, team challenges and many others!
We are all having a great time and are looking forward to the rest of the week!
We all arrived safely at Alltnacriche and we are having a great time. When we arrived we went a walk and took part in ‘Land Grab!’ (orienteering) We then got some free time where we played outside in the grounds and in the gym hall. We also had a challenge of making a package to put round a raw egg which we had to drop from the top of the stairs without smashing it!
Lookout for more post and photos to follow over the next couple of days!
After months of rehearsals and fine tuning, we were not disappointed by the fantastic performance of Oliver by the Drama Club. There were rave reviews from parents and community members who were very impressed with the standard, confidence and acting skills of the pupils. Many thanks to Mrs. Ghee for her time and commitment to the Drama Club and Miss Watson, Mrs. Dalseme and Mrs. Schmidt for their invaluable support; also to the many parents who came along to help prepare the children on the nights. Our biggest thanks goes to all the boys and girls for their dedication and hard work in perfecting their performances. It certainly paid off, as we were all thoroughly entertained and proud of you all.
What a fantastic opportunity and experience for Andrew, Niamh, Louise and Charley. They were invited along to the Regional Summit, hosted at the Iron Works in Inverness. Along with representatives from many other schools, they were asked their views and concerns about education today. They met and listened to adults from Education Scotland and the Scottish Government. But the highlight for them all seems to have been getting Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister for Scotland`s autograph and having their picture taken with her. What a memorable experience!
