Kinlochbervie High School is 21 years old

The high school opened in 1995 and was the result of a long successful campaign led by area parents for a new school.  Prior to 1995 area children went to high schools on the East Coast and stayed in local hostels.

This is the ideal time to look again at the film “Puts Eton in the Shade” which chronicles the school’s first week.

Visit from Vancouver Police Pipe Band

Last Friday we were delighted to host members of the Vancouver Police Pipe Band who visited us in school and also played a dedication at the Robert McBeath VC memorial cairn. The whole school went up to the cairn which was built as part of the McBeath Project in 2009, leading to some close ties being formed with the VPD and two school visits to Vancouver. After the ceremony the visitors were shown some of the beautiful scenery around Kinlochbervie and visited Oldshoremore Beach and Drumnaguie.
