Our annual Transition's weekend took place at the Abernethy Centre, Ardgour over the weekend of 7th-9th June.

Feedback from the weekend is always positive. Thanks to all who were involved.

13 June 2019Bourblaig Trip

On 23rd May, the S3 History pupils took a trip to Bourblaig Clearance Village.

A interesting trip in which pupils used skills in map reading, maths and measurement and used previous research on clearance villages to identify areas and building types.

The day stayed fine and pupils left with a better idea of what life may have been like in the 18th Century as young people in a village settlement in the West Coast.
