Twenty eight pupils, three staff and two adult helpers travelled to Les Menuires in the French Alps in January this year. The conditions were fantastic, lots of sunshine, snow and blue bird days. Intrepid beginners soon became proficient and those who had skied before developed their skills to a high standard.
We met up with a group from Lochaber High School and friendships developed! There are lo of photos of the trip on Flickr.
Furthermore, there was a long and dangerous journey ahead if I was to follow the heroes of our past. Receiving the new phones will be a great chance for us all to progress with our careers as we can keep better communication with peers and other members of the work force. This job has given us an incredible amount of experience in working in the real world, having to meet deadlines and to work through all the problems that may have arisen along the way.
These new and more developed transferrable skills will help all of us in our future careers and are rare in the work environment. We would all hope to see future collaborations between Gairloch High School and Skye and Wester Ross Fisheries Trust so more people will be able to benefit from it in the same way we have. We would like to thank Kevin Ginty for providing experience and knowledge in areas where we ly Who want Gairloch morning fun none.
We would also like to thank Peter Jarosz and Dr Close for bringing the project to us and allowing us to take it on. As always, the trip was much enjoyed and worthwhile and our thanks go out to the wonderful staff at Holyrood who always go out of their way to make our Parliament visits so memorable. Your support is very much appreciated.
We had a great turnout and sold a record 34 calendars! There are lots of photos from the event, taken by Evander Duncan S6 on Flickr. As soon as we rowers entered the sports centre the competition was in, we already knew the bar was set high. Everyone was nervous for their individual competitions bus as soon as we began our timed rows our mind was set on each stroke and every meter we could squeeze in. By the time it was our team rows, everyone still had all their energy and was either yelling, edging us on or actually taking part in the competitive m team row.
The atmosphere during team rows was fantastic!
I think I can speak on behalf of everyone saying our months of hard work paid off. An experience none of us will ever forget!
Thank you to Mrs Hildrey and Fiona for all the support, driving us down and of course for even putting up with all the hassle over the Bluetooth and the music! The school calendar is now available! The calendar has also been supported by many local businesses. All profits made go towards school funds. They will also be on sale at the Senior School Exhibition opening this evening to which all are welcome — from 5. We left Gairloch early Tuesday morning and took the ferry to Lewis. We had prepared the first and part of the second debate beforehand, between school and home.

Sixteen schools took part in the debate but only the top four would go through to the semi-finals in Edinburgh. We stayed and ate in the Cala Inn for two nights. Bha sinn uile air seachd puingean deug fhaighinn eadar gach deasbad. Once both our debates were over, we received our points. We had all got seventeen points between the two debates.
As we went through, we will travel down to Edinburgh in three weeks. A Gairloch High School S2-S3 boys football team and a S1-S3 girls football team including me went to Dornoch for the small schools football tournament. When we arrived we got into our kit and we were all ased out positions and I played Goalkeeper.
As we stepped onto the pitches we went in with a burning mentality and we were so confident. First game we won that was a great game and we only lost one game our were 5 wins and 1 loss which drew us with Dornoch and we are through to the semifinals of the small schools football tournament which is great for a size of Who want Gairloch morning fun school like us, we succeed in the activities that we participate in. My highlight of the game was probably my penalty save against Ullapool A but out top goal scorers did amazingly great they were Corey Maclennan with 9 goals, Eoin Cummings with 8 goals and Josh Tallach with 7 goals which was fantastic.
Now we look ahead and get ready for the semifinals I have a feeling that we are going to win it all.
When we arrived we got onto the pitch the atmosphere was tense but yet very excitable, we went off to stretch and warm up. The energy was amazing. Our first game was against our hosts, Dornoch High. The first game was by far the most difficult because we had never played as a solid team.
Unfortunately we lost in that game. We were much more prepared for the next game against Ullapool the final score of that was After that we had a group discussion and we agreed that we were playing to defensively instead of attacking. Our last game was one we knew we had to win. We were very strong in that match especially, both defensively and we lost Somehow throughout all of our games we came off the pitch with smiles on our faces and very Who want Gairloch morning fun up spirits within us the entire day.

It was a great trip, and thank you to the teachers for giving their time to take us. December 27, Leave a comment. The school had 8 new mountain bikes delivered on December 18th. A lot of work has gone into creating them — please have a look if you have time and VOTE. The shortlist for the various prizes will be announced on the 8th of January.
The first viewing will leave a lot of questions but the second should answer them. It would be awful to hear that you were no longer wanted … but to hear that your loved-ones no longer want you around …. A journey through the waves of time…. The North Coast has proved very successful but is it beneficial or damaging to our local area?
Don’t worry—here are some similar options

The app is deed to collect data about fish catches and invasive species as well as give the user up to date information about where to go fishing in Wester Ross. This has given them an insight into the world of work and app development. The programme is ongoing and may be an opportunity to work with other GHS pupils in the future. We really appreciate having this unique opportunity given to us.
Thank you once again. December 5, Leave a comment. Senior Music pupils provided the entertainment.
There were over pupils from all over Scotland but only us and 1 pupil from Ullapool from the Highlands! They were tasked with trying to beat their personal bests and to do their best — and they did! We were very proud of every one of them, they took it seriously, behaved impeccably and showed lots of spirit, not giving up when it was tough…it came close a few times. Lots more photos from the event can be seen on Flickr.
