Our thanks to Kirsty and Des at Green Hive in Nairn who supported our class visit yesterday to the local community orchard. We were shown the leaf mulching/compost, water butts and also learnt about the fruit trees in the orchard. We were able to help with weeding, lifting leaves and preparing an area for a herb garden. Next week we are visiting the allotments.

Inverness College interview dates

Pupils who have applied for school- college programmes at Inverness College have all been sent confirmation of interview dates. The exception to this is higher education applicants and most higher courses which do not interview. If you are not sure please see your Guidance Teacher asap!

A second date will only be offered where there are mitigating circumstances such as clash with exams. If students do attend interview and have not notified the college of a reason for non-attendance no second date will be given.

The decision letters will be sent out as soon as possible, but please take into account that some subjects will take longer as they have multiple interview dates and decisions will not be made until after the final interviews.
