Uni-hoc Success

Sgoil a’ Bhac had four teams in the recent Sports Festival Uni-Hoc Competition, an event that saw 42 teams from schools across Lewis and Harris go head-to-head over three weeks of matches. Two of our teams, the ‘Back Guardians’ and ‘Back Attack’ won through to last night’s finals. After an evening of close competition, Back Guardians finished third overall and Back Attack were ninth, an excellent achievement.

Well done to all the children in our four teams who took part and thank you to the parents who transported pupils and came along to support them.

Tartan Day for Coisir Og a’ Bhac

Last Friday, the school held a special ‘Tartan Day’ to raise funds for Coisir Og a’ Bhac to help them fund their trip to the upcoming National Mod in Inverness. The day raised an excellent £172.76 through the donations of children wearing tartan and a treasure hunt game.

We’d like to wish the choir the very best of luck in their Mod competitions.

Charity Bake Sale

Ellie Macdonald and Erin Macleod from GP7  organised a special bake sale to raise funds to support a Cerebral Palsy charity. They worked very hard to prepare their baking and it was very well received by the pupils when they held their sale at break-time today. They raised an hugely impressive £180.00 for their charity.

Scottish Independence Referendum – Polling Station

The old Sgoil Araich building at the front of the school is being used today as a polling station for the Back area in the Independence Referendum. This may result in parking and traffic at the front of the school being much busier than usual at drop-off and pick-up times. We would like to apologise to parents for any inconvenience this may cause. Both the Sgoil Araich and the school are open as normal today.
