John Muir Discover Award

Nairn Academy worked in partnership with High Life Highland Youth and Ranger Services to support 6 pupils to gain their John Muir Discover Award. The project took place in Delnies Community Woodland, on the Whiteness Road. Group members wish to continue next term to attain their Explore level.

Royal Marine Commando visit

We were very lucky to have a visit from two Royal Marine Commando’s on Tuesday. They explained to the S4 year group the roles, responsibilities and expectations that are required to earn the green beret and to represent the elite of the British Armed Forces.

The S4’s were then put through their paces with a special PT session. Please see attached  pictures – and thanks to the S4 pupils for being such good sports and for their excellent behaviour.

Netball Club

Nairn Academy Netball Club is back up and running, every Wednesday from 4pm to 5pm. Well done to Leah Ferguson and Jenny Birks for passing their Level 1 Coaching in Netball, their dedication and skills are highly commended.

For further information, please see Mrs Smolak.

Nairn Academy Breakfast Club

Many thanks to everyone who has made Breakfast Club such a success this year.

We have made 35 collections through FareShare. This has been recorded as 533kg of food, equivalent to 1,172 meals with a saving of 1,705kg of Carbon Dioxide.

Well done to Callum, Ross and Murren – that is a lot of toasting, buttering and pouring since August.

Sadly, Miss Dale and Mrs Fowler are moooooving onto pastures new next year so will not be at Nairn Academy. We would like to wish them well in their new posts.
