Girls Shinty Team

Last week the Kingussie High School Girls Team played their second league tournament of the year at Lochaber High School.

Kingussie were unbeaten in four matches against Lochaber B, Ardnamurchan and Oban before defeating top of the league Lochaber A. The team played incredibly well and only conceded one goal during the entire tournament.

Player of the tournament was Katie Falconer who was superb in defence.

Jewish Wedding

Recently, as part of our RMPS programme two members of Scotland’s Jewish Community visited the school. Mr and Mrs Taylor, representatives of the Aberdeen Hebrew Congregation, spend all day working with classes from S1 to S4.

Pupils were given a really fascinating insight into Judaism – its traditions, rituals, practices, beliefs and values.

There was lots of classroom fun: a Jewish Wedding was enacted in classes as well as the synagogue Torah procession. Pupils also learned about the history of Judaism and about Judaism in Scotland today.

So successful was the day that Mr Mrs Taylor have promised to make their visit an annual part of KHS’s Religious, Moral and Philosophical calendar.

Under 16s - March 2015

The Kingussie Under 16s football team recorded an excellent result against Golspie High last week winning 5-1. In poor conditions Kingussie took the lead through Freddie Mcfadyen (S4) who slotted a goal home nicely. Golspie equalised against the run of play before Iain Robinson (S5) scored with minutes remaining in the half to take a 2-1 lead into half time.

In the second half Kingussie took full control of the game and soon extended the lead through 2 more goals from hat trick hero Iain Robinson. Alexander Michie (S3) scored from close range to complete the scoring in this excellent victory. Man of the match was Jordan Beaton for his solid performance in the middle of the park. Special thanks to Craig Macleod (S6) and Craig Ritchie (S6) for refereeing the match.

Kingussie High Schools Sports Dinner will be held on 23rd April 2015 at the MacDonald Resort Aviemore. Over 200 tickets have been sold and anyone interested in coming to join the fun should contact Scott Douglas (Acting Head of Health and Wellbeing) at the school. Guest Speaker for the night is Craig Brown former Scotland and Aberdeen Manager who also trained PE Teacher
