We had our first ‘Celebrating Success’ assembly today with the new S1 pupils and we were delighted to welcome Mairi from VABS (Voluntary Action in Badenoch and Strathspey) to celebrate all the achievements and hours of voluntary work completed by the new S1s while they were in Primary 7. In total this year they managed to accumulate 2,165 hours. Well done to you all! More photos on our Facebook page.
