Our Local Ministers are invited to share leadership of regular monthly or termly assemblies providing an opportunity for religious engagement. Parents have the right to request their child is removed from assemblies with a Christian focus for alternative reflection.
Ardnamurchan High School has been a community school since its inception and an integral partnership has been with Àrainn Shuaineirt (the Sunart Centre) and with the wider community. Many of the extra curricular opportunities and activities for our children which school staff organise are supplemented and supported by Partner staff working from the centre under Highlife Highland. These staff are:
Eoghan Carmichael (Centre Coordinator)
Stewart Malcolm (Youth development worker)
Dot Lynas (Active Schools Coordinator)
Amy MacDougall (Acting Network Librarian)
Activities include, youth club, sporting events, drama and music events and festivals, reading and book events and fitness activities. The rural transport initiative allows us to provide regular buses to the communities throughout Ardnamurchan and Moidart to allow children to attend events on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Our Partnerships with the wider community also support the curriculum and wider skills for Learning, Life and Work development.
