Assemblies this week are on the theme of Armistice / Remembrance and are being delivered by our Lead Prefect Team and pupils involved in the recent History trip to the WW1 Battlefields.

On Thursday we welcomed Mr Roddy Wood from the Royal British Legion in Inverness. Mr Wood oversees many of the arrangements for the annual Poppy Appeal in Inverness and he was delighted to hear pupil accounts of their recent trip to Belgium.

On Friday, our final house assembly was attended by Provost Alex Graham, and Cllr Graham Ross. Mr Callum Macintosh, Area Education Manager also joined us for this important period of reflection.

Well done to all the pupils who participated in assemblies this week, who were all a credit to the school and our community. Our guests were very impressed.

Our Head Boy and Head Girl (Shaun Thomas and Emma Macrae) will lay a poppy wreath at the cenotaph on Sunday and other members of the lead prefect team will attend the special event at the Town House on Monday 11th as guests of Provost Alex Graham.
