The Support Department will have a stall at the Tanzania Work Party Christmas Fayre which will be held in the school on Saturday 14th November from 10 am to 3 pm. Pupils have been busy making a range of Christmas crafts such as Christmas cards, candle holders and gift tags.
Come along and buy some of our crafts – it is a great way to support both the Support Department and the Tanzania trip.

Ross, Phillip, Isabelle and Chris were unfortunate to lose their silver medal position in the Relay due to an administration error.
Also well done to Ross Halkett for a brilliant performance in the school’s production of Hairspray.
Well done to Fraser Finlayson and Reece Phillips who were selected to represent the Highlands at the Scottish Disability Sports day in Grangemouth. Both boys were successful with Fraser winning Gold in the 400m and Bronze in the 100m and Reece winning Silver in the 400m.
There was a mixture of hard work and fun for the NCFE Bushcraft group as they went for an overnight campout by the River Findhorn. They had to set up camp and help with chores as well as working on their Bushcraft folders, learning plant identification, making fires and working on craft projects. There was also time to sit round the camp fire and play some games.
Well done to all the group who particpated well, worked hard and contributed to a great experience for everyone.
Our 3rd Year Bushcraft group have been working hard in all types of weather on the NCFE Bushcraft Course. They have made natural shelters, learned how to safely light fires, worked on filtering and purifying water and have learned how to identify a range of trees and plants. Great work from all the group!
