We have previously posted this message but it is a timely reminder for us all when so many new uniforms will be bought over the summer:
Lochaber High School is now a donation point for the School Uniform Bank. Donations of new or second-hand items (in good condition) can be handed in at any time to the school office. A range of items are requested, e.g. any items of school uniform (High School or Primary), pencil cases, lunch boxes, schoolbags, P.E. kit, jackets, shoes, trainers, gloves, hats and scarves.
Any donations will be gratefully received.
The S3 exams will be starting on Monday 18 June. The schedule is attached below and is based on when pupils attend their new (S4) timetabled classes.
For example, if your son/daughter has Biology period 2 on a Tuesday then they will sit the Biology exam between 0900-1030 on Tuesday 19 June.
This week the Lochaber High School Girls' Shinty team competed in the League Finals at An Aird. Both our league team and our development team made it to the semi-finals which is an outstanding achievement.
Well done to Ardnamurchan High School who won the development shield and to Portree High School who were unbeaten all day and won the overall tournament.
Thank you to Ryan Boyle (S6) who refereed the proceedings and to Kirsty Delaney who volunteered to be our team coach for the day.
Lochaber High School has taken part in the Big Pedal for the second year in a row. The National initiative organised annually by Sustrans sees primary and secondary schools from across the UK encouraging pupils and teachers to cycle to school. During the 2 weeks of the Big Pedal, between 50 and 60 pupils and staff were using their bikes to get to LHS – a huge increase on the usual 20-25 people who regularly cycle.
Compared to last year’s event, there was an increase of almost 20% of participants across the 2 weeks, with more cyclists every day than last year. The generous prize donations from many local businesses helped to provide encouragement and incentive to the pupils to get cycling to school. First prize was a brand new mountain bike donated by Nevis Cycles. Ronnie Fulford, who cycled almost every day from Glenloy won this brilliant prize. Liberty Aluminium donated an iPad, which was won by Rianne Gilchrist who cycles every day, all year! Also donating prizes were Off Beat Bikes, The Tavern, Nevis Range, Scotrail, Corrour Station Restaurant, Sammy’s, The Wildcat, The Highland Bookshop, 3 Wise Monkey’s Climbing, The Granite House, Cotswold Outdoor and Sustrans .
A huge well done must go to the LHS Parent Council for pulling all the prizes together and providing a warm welcome to the cyclists each morning, to Developing the Young Workforce for support with marketing and advertising, to No Fuss Events for the loan of the extra bike racks and to High Life Highland for assisting with event logistics and to all the teachers and staff who encouraged participation.
New timetables for 2018-19 will be issued this week to our S1-S3 students before the start of the new timetable on Tuesday 5 June. Our new S5 and S6 students will receive their timetable during an assembly which will start at 8.50am on Tuesday 5 June.
As a reminder Monday the 4 June is a staff training day.
