The sunshine broke through the morning clouds, bringing us the perfect weather for ourJunior Highland Games. With children competing in events, live music, a great array of food, craft items, rides, live falcon displays and much more, there was plenty to entertain the crowds! We were very pleased to welcome fourteen teams to the event and there was fine competition in the hill race, tug o’ war, slippery pole, haggis hurling and caber tossing. There were also a record seven teams taking part in the eightsome reel competition.

Congratulations to ESMS school who travelled all the way from Edinburgh to win the top prize of first place. Gordonstoun Junior School came second, and Milne’s and Portgordon Primaries won equal third place. The Junior School also earned bronze medals in the eightsome reel with Portknockie silver and Portgordon winning gold. Our very own Will C earned a silver in the hill race, and we were delighted to see so many of our pipers and drummers performing superbly to win prizes too - they were: Ruby, Maisie, Alex M, Mimi, Sophia, Angus and Owen. Well done everyone!

We would also like to say a massive THANK YOU  to the Highland Games Committee; all staff and students; and everyone who donated generous prizes and volunteered at the event - your time and effort was greatly appreciated and helped to ensure the event was a resounding success. Also a big thank you to our sponsors and supporters: Munro & Noble, McCallum Bagpipes, The Bothy, Wester Ross Salmon and the many stall holders.

Year 8 STV : Teamwork = Success

STV on the West Coast

Year 8 set off the day after the Highland Games to experience a fantastic voyage with glorious weather. The skills and memories from the voyage on the boat will certainly set them in good stead for their future.

Beans and Pasta

It may not sound like the dream combination but its worked out pretty well for Year 5’s art work! They have been creating bean and pasta mosaics inspired by Antoni Gaudi. The children produced some fantastic pieces of work and managed to use the ingredients purely for their work instead of a mid-morning snack. Great will power and a super job Year 5!
