07 November 2019Deasbad 2019 / Gàidhlig High Schools debate 2019

‘S math a rinn Frances NicDhòmhnaill agus Raonaid Ford a ghabh pàirt ann an Deasbad Nàiseanta nan Àrdsgoiltean ann an Steòrnabhagh bho chionn ghoirid. Bha sinn an aghaidh Àrdsgoil Gheàrrloich ( bhuannaich sinn an deasbad sin nar beachdsa) agus Ardsoil Lionacleit ( rinn iad sin an gnothach oirnne !)  Ged nach d’ fhuair sinn troimhe chun na cuairtean dheireannach am bliadhna, chòrd an turas ris na nigheannan, choinnich iad ri caraidean ùra agus chleachd iad an cuid sgilean Gàidhlig cha mhòr  làn-ùine air an turas. Cuideachd,  is dòcha gum bi iad air ais a-rithist an ath bhliadhna !

Well done to Frances and Rachel who competed so well in the  Gaidhlig School debate 2019 in Stornoway recently. They battled it out with schools from Gairloch ( we reckon we won that one )  and Àrdsgoil Lionacleit  ( probably just got shaded in that one tbf !)  Although we were not one of the top 4 teams to go through to the finals , both girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience , developing their language skills and making new friends. They also didn’t say ‘no’ to the suggestion that they might return in S6!

07 November 2019Donella Crawford Cup

AHS hosted the Donella Crawford Cup again this year with girls' shinty teams playing in sunny weather for a change.
Great atmosphere and good spirits were present throughout and all our teams did well.
The AHS 'A' Team reached the final to be beaten by Culloden Academy at the last gasp.
A really good day. Well done to all the players, coaches and our young supporters who helped organise the day and provided welcome teas and coffees for the visiting teams.

07 November 2019Lochaber Rotary Young Chef of the Year 2019

Congratulations to our 4 young chefs who did brilliantly in the competition this year.
Helen Jones, Sophie Herron, Ailsa MacGillivray and Kayla Burgess produced some amazing dishes for pupils so young - all S1s. The Rotary judges were very impressed but chose Helen as the chef with the most points and Sophie, a close second with half a point difference between them. There was barely a point between them all.
Helen will go onto represent AHS in the next stage to be held in February.

01 November 2019Halloween Cake

Big thank you to Mrs Kammerath for her annual donation of one of her amazing cakes in aid of a nominated charity. The cake slices were sold in break and lunchtimes and raised £36. The charity this year is Road Peace Scotland whose aim is to help victims of accidents during what can be, a very lonely and frightening time.

Big thanks to the staff involved in planning, preparation and delivery as well as our Music technology students on sound and Jospeh Tait on lights.
