What’s happening at school?

In addition to the traditional method of communicating via letters home with pupils, we aim to keep parents informed through social media as well.

For day-to-day news, we have Facebook and Twitter.

Kinlochbervie High School has its own Facebook page.  We also post when appropriate to the Kinlochbervie and Scourie Facebook pages.  Our new Twitter presence can be found at:

The school’s web site has news but also has photographs, Parent Council minutes, reports to parents, Highland Council documents etc. You can email receive notification of new posts by visiting the web site and clicking the Follow button.

To raise funds for the Vancouver field trip (4-11 October 2017), we will be having several fundraising events.  The first is a Valentine’s Hamper.

Parents should send in an item for the hamper by next Monday.  One item per family group is sufficient.  Pupils will also be expected to actively sell the raffle tickets in their villages.

The hamper will have a red-coloured theme so where possible try to buy items with this in mind.

Some hamper ideas:

  • chocolates
  • sparkling rose wine
  • candles
  • Valentine’s Day decorations
  • heart-shaped biscuits
  • red-coloured shower gel/bath foam/soap
  • heart-shaped accessories – dish, mirror, magnet, sign, etc etc
  • Valentine’s teddy
  • jam
  • Love Heart sweets
  • Love Songs CD
  • Rom Com DVD
  • cup cakes

…and any other items you feel are suitable!

All items should be handed in by Monday 6 February.  Pupils will then be given tickets to sell in their area.

Thank you.
