Lochaber Rural Education Trust has, once again, organised a Rural Skills Careers event in Ben Nevis Auction Mart for all of our S2 pupils. On Friday, 17 March, 150 pupils attended the event which started with a Stock-judging and Mock Valuation, with prizes donated by Sammy’s Chips and Lochaber Leisure Centre. The winners were Robbie Brown and Jordan Campbell. The pupils were then split into groups and a ‘round-robin’ followed where they learned about the skills of John MacKillop, Manager/Shepherd, Borlum Estate; Ewen Campbell, Manager/Cattleman, SRUC Kirkton; Alex MacDonald, Achnacarry Sports & Country Pursuits; Kate Tuer, Fassfern Forestry; Lochaber Pony Club; Lochaber Bee Keepers; Crown Vets and Heather MacNeil, WHC Careers Tutor.
Mr Beagent, Principal Teacher of Guidance, who coordinated the event, thanked all those who participated and acknowledged all the hard work done by Isabel and Linda Campbell and their team from LRET. Feedback from the pupils has been extremely positive.
