It has been a busy couple of weeks in the RME department. We recently held our annual “Who Am I?” exhibition which showcased all of the S1 homework projects, with pupils voting for their favourite project. It was a very difficult choice to make as it was clear how much time and effort had been spent on each of the projects. The votes have been counted and the results are in!
Class votes: 1st – Lily Bloom 1A (Chest of Drawers); 2nd – Max Kelly 1C (Poster); 3rd – Faith Easson 1D (Handmade Box & Book); 4th – Caitlin McGilvray 1E (Swimming Pool) ; 5th– Jake Sessions 1A (Castle); 6th – Rosyln Campbell 1E (Cake). Mr Sutherland’s Prize went to Anya Morrice 1E (Library).
On Monday 25 September, we hosted a coffee morning as part of the Youth & Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) which all of our S3 pupils participate in. YPI gets pupils to think about the social issues in our local area and choose a charity that works on making our community a better place. They form small teams and work together to represent their chosen charity for a £3000 grant that is generously donated from The Wood Foundation. At the coffee morning, all of the pupils got to meet up with representatives from their chosen charity and ask them lots of questions to find out all about the work that these charities do for people in Lochaber. Our guests were delighted to be able to raise awareness about the issues they campaign tirelessly for and many commented on how impressed they were with our pupils. Now it’s up to the pupils to do everything they can to win £3000 for their chosen charity.
