Final Exams 2018

All S4-6 pupils were issued with a personalised final exam timetable at Tutor Time today.  It is very important that they check the details and let Mr Ross know ASAP if they have any problems, questions or queries.  Don’t wait till later to ask about possible mistakes/changes as the rules are different with SQA exams than with our prelims so go and see him immediately.

Shinty Tournament

Fifteen pupils travelled to Kingussie on Thursday for an S1/2 Shinty Tournament organised by the CamanachdAssociation. Our A team won 4 matches and drew 2, our B team had a great afternoon of shinty and beat our closest rivals, the Kingussie S1 team. The most entertaining game was the Grantown mixed A/B teams which resulted in a 2 all draw.

Well done to all the goal scorers who bagged fifteen goals between them and to everyone for great team spirit and sportsmanship.


Geek Fridays – S2/S3

Message from Skills Development Scotland:
Our exciting *new* after-school class ‘Geek Friday’ is open for S2s and S3s to learn about STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) in a fun, interactive way. It’s a relaxed environment where you can try your hand at professional photography, do cool science experiments, create virtual art, code your own music or build robots – it’s up to you! Our science guru Alessio is there to support you while you get creative!

Sign-up is in blocks, however sessions run throughout the year, so you can repeat your booking! See you soon!

If you can get to SDS’s digital lab in Church St, Inverness after school on Fridays I’m sure it would be a lot of fun.

John Muir Award – S2 Pond Dipping
