Today a group of Grantown Grammar School and Kingussie High School pupils attended the Pride Inverness march. It was an excellent day with lots of music, speeches, fun and laughter. We even managed to stop off to say “hello” to the GGS squirrel. Thank you to Fraser Morrison for driving the mini bus.
The whole school was treated to an inspiring talk from Olympic and World cycle Champion Katie Archibald today. Katie told us about her planning and preparation for racing, the ups and downs of elite sport, her great achievements as well as a few crashes along the way.
Pupils have been issued with their Gradebook Dashboard for 2019-20 via their school Gmail. This can also be viewed (and bookmarked) via ‘Shared with me’ in Drive or Sheets once opened. As teachers add assessment and homework data it will be instantly available.
We are optimistic that Summer is due to arrive tomorrow, just in time for sports day. So please bring a water bottle, wear suitable lightweight clothes and definitely wear suncream. You will be outside for the majority of the day.
We are delighted to have Katie Archibald coming to visit us on Wednesday 3 July. The Olympic, World, Commonwealth, European, British and Scottish Champion is popping in for a tour of the school and to talk to the pupils.
Katie is in the area to promote the drive for a Highland Velodrome as well as the upcoming World Championships in Yorkshire and heard about what an active bunch GGS pupils are so wanted to come and say hi.
As well as speaking at an assembly, I’m sure she’ll have time for a few selfies if our cycle fans want to meet the cycling superstar
