Unveiling of Paving Stone in Honour of Robert McBeath V.C.

At 11.00 a.m. on 15 September 2017, the school held a ceremony to unveil a paving stone in honour of Robert McBeath.  The stone is part of the U.K. Government’s program to provide a paving stone for every person who won the Victoria Cross in World War 1.

We were honoured that so many people (school, community, visitors, representatives of the armed forces, police officers and representatives from Highland Council).  The citation was read by Mr Jim McKinnon who is the great-nephew of Robert McBeath.

Craft Fayre – Saturday 28 October 2017

After the success of last year’s Craft Fayre, the S3 pupils are organising another fund-raising event on Saturday 28th October. The Craft Fayre will take place in Kinlochbervie High School from 11.30 am – 2.30 pm. Local arts and crafts, Christmas gifts, teas/coffee and home baking, raffle and loads of fun!

All proceeds will go to “The Highland Hospice”. (Can we beat last year’s total of £1500?)

If you would like to book a table at the event or require further information please contact: diana.bain@highland.gov.uk

Donations of raffle prizes and home baking welcome.  Also feel free to come along on the day and help out.

Robert McBeath Unveiling

There was a large turnout for the unveiling of the VC commemorative paving stone for Robert McBeath.  The only downside was the weather – it was very wet.  More photos will follow.

The original cairn (to the left) was built in 2009 and the information board in 2010.  The wall was built this year specifically for the paving stone.

 

Pupil Council Representatives

Pupil Council is your chance to have a greater say over matters that affect you in school.  The pupil council gives you the chance to tell teachers and staff your ideas and represents each class in school. It allows you to be involved in decisions that affect you, keeps you informed about the life of the school and helps you to gain confidence to have your say. It can also help you to feel good about your place in the school community by giving you responsibilities and encourages active citizenship.

If you have any issues, concerns or suggestions about what you would like to see happen, see changed or not see happen in the school please put it in writing to your rep who will bring it up at the next meeting .
