Maureen Shannon

We are all very saddened to learn of the death last night of Maureen Shannon.  Maureen stepped in for most of last year to teach Maths when we were without a teacher.  She was always a lively presence at the school and will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know her.

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.

If you wish to donate to the effort, this can be done via the following fundraising website:
