House Colours

Fit for Girls – Studies show that 65% of 14year-old girls do not reach the recommended levels of physical activity and 43% of women do little or no exercise. The Fit for Girls programme seeks to improve on this situation and over the past three years the PE department and the Active Schools Coordinator have been involved in this programme. Our S2 female pupils were investigated in session 2008/9 and found to be significantly better than the average. The follow-up survey in 2010/11 on the same pupils (in 4th year by this time) showed a significant increase in activity levels and even better attitudes towards sports and activity. This is a very gratifying result, especially for Mrs. Hildrey and Mrs. Johnston who have done so much to encourage the girls in their efforts.

As a result of the schools involvement in the programme our Active Schools Coordinator, Dr Shearer, has been able to access funds to provide every girl in the school with polo shirts in their house colours: Kerry-blue; Maree-red and Tollaidh-yellow. Mrs. Gulliver, has designed attractive logos for each house and these are embroidered on the shirts.  Click here to see more photos of the girls and the House logos.

S2 Inter-House Orienteering

Well done to all S2 pupils who took part in the Orienteering competition on Friday 13th November. The S4 Skills for Work class organized the event in Flowerdale. The S2’s were given a safety briefing before setting off in pairs or in trios at minute intervals.

The teams had to find 12 controls within the Flowerdale area, each one attached to a marker that was identified on their maps. 6 S4 pupils acted as marshalls standing at the out of bound points so that the teams didn’t go off the map. Overall, it went very well and there weren’t any problems or accidents. Congratulations to Luke Gorman and Caitlin Johnston of Tiollaidh who won the event with Chris Young and Kalvin Fraser (Maree) in 2nd place. Laura Ridehalgh, Eilidh MacLennan and Gemma McLean (Kerry) came third.

The S2 thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we’d be happy to organise another event in the future. Special thanks to Gairloch Estate for letting us run it on their land – Maddy and Patrick (S4)
