Highland Rugby Football Club grand opening



Mrs. Jo Blair, Mr. Jas Hepburn and Mrs. Skye Booth with Calcutta cup


              Jas is off with it!

Mr. Hepburn [P.E] Mrs. Blair [A.S.N] along with GGS Girls rugby coach Skye Booth were thankful to Mrs. McGonigal for allowing them to sneak out of school for a royal appointment, with H.R.H. Princess Anne today, for the official opening of Highland Rugby Football Club ground in Inverness.

In the beaming sunshine at Bught Park, along with many other players, former players, coaches and volunteers, they all met the princess and had a wee chat about their involvement with the club and its future. There are many GGS boys and girls past and present throughout all the agegroups who feed into H.R.F.C teams, so it was nice to have the opportunity to represent them at the event.

The CALCUTTA CUP was also on display, and since it was the first wee chance [in 10 years] to get their hands on it – there was no stopping them!

Headteacher’s Drop-in Session

Headteacher’s Drop-in Surgery is on tomorrow (Tuesday).  Mrs McGonigal is available from 4.30-6.00 pm if you’d like to pop in for a chat.  If you can’t make that time but want to see Mrs McGonigal, please contact the school to make an appointment.

The Sewing Bee needs your help. We need to finish the costumes for this year’s Rock Challenge. This is the final push. All welcome. We need hand sewing and machine sewing people. We also need people that can help make tea and for putting costumes on hangers.

Football 0318

North Scottish Schools Cup FINALISTS! A clinical performance from the GGS Senior Football team saw them beat Meldrum 3-1 this week to earn a place in the final! The boys put on a fantastic team performance which has to have been one of their most convincing of the season. Congratulations to all the players and Keith Ballam, the team’s coach, for this fantastic achievement.
