Coast to Coast 17

They’re off!

Good luck to Stuart, Kieran, Lucy, Alan and Mr Smart who have now set out from Dunrobin Castle on the Coast to Coast Walk.   They join pupils from Golspie and Dornoch High Schools for a five-day walk across Sutherland.  At Laxford Bridge, the Lochinver Lifeboat will meet the group and transport them to Kinlochbervie.  We expect them to arrive at Loch Clash in Kinlochbervie on Tuesday afternoon.

The group are fundraising for the RNLI, the East Sutherland Rescue Service and Friends of Sutherland Veterans.  The three schools will also benefit.

Thank you to all who given your financial support.

Red Nose Day

The school will  be taking part in Red Nose Day on Friday 24 March.  Pupils can wear red should they wish (or come to school in uniform as normal).  There will be an in-house talent show in the afternoon for house points.  Pupils are asked to donate £3 each to take part or watch.

There will also be a bake sale at morning interval.  We will be very grateful for any home baking sent in from parents.  Pupils should also  remember to bring extra money to buy baking.

Highland Befrienders

On Friday 3 March, a representative of the the Highland Befrienders’ Group visited the school and accepted a cheque for the money raised for the group at the school’s December concert. The Highland Befrienders were one of the charities chosen by S3 pupils in the recent Youth and Philanthropy competition.

YPI Videos

Just in case you missed the videos…
As part of the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (http://ypiscotland.org.uk), three teams of S3 pupils made presentations in December before a judging panel in a bid to secure £3,000 for their chosen charity.  Each team had prepared a video that showcased their charity.  The winning charity was the Ceilidh House.  Door donations at the school’s annual Christmas Concert raised a further £424 for the other two charities.
