March Newsletter Banner

Kingussie High School Newsletters have gone digital.

There are a number of reasons for this.  One of the reasons is to cut down on expensive printing costs (we are quite sure that letters don’t always make it home!) and secondly we are trying to share our good news stories and information more regularly using our website (kingussiehigh.org.uk), our Facebook group (facebook.com/kingussiehigh) and our regular four weekly page in the Strathy newspaper (The Kingussie catch-up).

As and when a newsletter becomes available (we publish five times a year) we will let you know about it via our websiteFacebook groupStrathy page and Twitter stream.  We will also send you an email (as long as we have your email address).  If you want to add yourself to our email distribution list simply fill in the form at www.kingussiehigh.org.uk/newsletter.

You can view our April Digital Newsletter below – or you can download it from the digital schoolbag.

Traveling Galley Art Bus

The school was recently lucky enough to have a visit from the Traveling Art Gallery. The exhibition was called “I Heart Scotland” with artworks and a short film by Rachel Maclean. The theme of the exhibition was a look at Scottish identity and politics though myths legends and history.

Massive thank you to Mr Douglas for helping with all the logistics of this.

Mystery Skype

What an exciting afternoon Mr McLagan’s 1X Geography class had recently during their very first ‘Mystery Skype’.

This is where pupils had to ask questions to find out where the school was using atlases, Google maps and a clue or two!

Unfortunately we did not guess the correct school, and it turned out to be Léman Manhattan Preparatory School - but we got fairly close and ended up only a few blocks away!

Pupils in both schools found this lesson fun and engaging, and even learnt a fact or two about each other! Mr McLagan – get planning some more!

Would you like the chance to win some money and at the same time help raise funds for Kingussie High School?

The parent council have set up a Lucky Number Draw (similar to the 100 club idea). There are many areas waiting for funding. Our priorities at the moment are canteen furniture, curtains for the stage/assembly hall and display boards all around the school.

Once a month the numbers will be drawn at the Parent Council meeting and prizes will be issued by cheque.

There will be a first, second and third prize – the prize money will be broken down into 60% for first prize, 30% second prize and 10% third prize. Prize amounts are dependent on how many numbers there are in the draw. Only paid up numbers will be entered into the draw.

Numbers will be sold for twelve draws in the year costing a total of £12 with the first draw in March 2014. Numbers can be sold to anyone over 18’s – please encourage family and friends to buy a number.

Please return the form (download from here) ASAP with your payment. You will be notified by e.mail/telephone of the number you’ve been allocated.

Winning numbers will be notified on the School web site and by e.mail/telephone.
