The Moderator of The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Rt Rev Dr Angus Morrison and Mrs Marion Morrison visited the school on Tuesday 29 September as part of their visit to the Lochaber Presbytery. They were welcomed to the school by Mrs MacKenzie, DHT and their visit began with a tour of the school, which Mrs Morrison was particularly keen to see as she had been a former Head Girl a number of years ago; both remarked on the improved facilities that pupils and staff now enjoy.
S6 pupils studying H Religious, Moral and Philosophy Studies had prepared some very searching questions as part of their ‘Morality’ topic and they were given the opportunity to discuss these with the Moderator. All of the pupils remarked on the integrity of the Moderator’s answers and agreed that such an opportunity was invaluable to their studies.
Rev Dr and Mrs Morrison presented the school with a beautiful Celtic Cross and pupils were given a book mark with a Celtic Blessing –
May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you In the palm of his hand.
