The sun shone for our annual fundraising ’Hike’ on Tuesday 6 September. Over 600 pupils took part in the seven-mile sponsored walk from the school to the Rural Complex at Torlundy and back with the event led by Sixth Years in fancy dress. Tired walkers had their lunch stop at the Rural Complex enlivened by a visit from Nuallan, a visiting four-piece band from Cape Breton, currently touring as part of the Blas festival.
The purpose of the ‘Hike’ is to raise money for extra-curricular activities in the school with 10% going to a children’s charity to be chosen by the elected Pupil Voice. It is hoped that, when all sponsor money pledged has been collected, the ‘Hike’ will raise over £7,000.
Thanks to all those who have taken part in the ‘Hike’, which was a great day out and the funds raised will give a welcome boost to our School Fund. As always, Mr MacLean, Depute Head Teacher, has organised everything well and we’re grateful to Isobel and Linda Campbell of the Rural Complex, the Police and the Forestry Commission for their support.
