S1 Shieling visit

As part of our S1 Nairn One World course, S1 pupils will visit the Shieling Project. Some pupils visited this week and took part in a range of activities including turf cutting and wall building, collecting flowers/plants to use as dye for wool, baking bread, using a cob oven and learning about life in the Shieling and how it compares with today. Despite the varying weather across the week, pupils took part and had a great experience in outdoor learning.

S2 Interdisciplinary Project ‘Survival days’

All S2 pupils will have a different learning experience on Mon 28th and Tues 29th May where they will work across subjects looking at ‘survival skills’.  They will get full details in school on Monday.  To help the preparation for this, please note S2 pupils do not need to wear dress code and they do need to have PE kit on both days.  On each day, S2 should go to registration as normal and then head to the canteen at the start of p1.
