Over 70 of our pupils are exhibiting their Art and Photography work at The Iona Gallery over the weekend. Free Entry and doors open Saturday (29th) and Sunday (30th) November 11am – 4pm. Full list of pupils who have work on display here: http://goo.gl/Mt7Tq0.

We took Art Classes along to see the exhibition today and everyone seemed to be pretty impressed with the quality and variety of work on display. Well done to all involved and if you are short of something to do at the weekend please pop along!

What a great result for the KHS Debating Team last night at the Donald Dewar Memorial Debating Tournament hosted by The Community School of Auchterarder. Well done to Rory and Beth for making it through to the next round and for successful defending the motion that “Britain should not be part of the EU” – also well done to Mr Mackenzie for all his hard work in the preparing the team (and being the taxi driver!).

Photography students Lee Anne Menzies, Jade Jacob, Eilidh Anderson, and Shannin Cooke have been getting to grips with selecting work for Kingussie High School’s forthcoming exhibition of Art and Design, and Photography work, at the Iona Gallery, Kingussie.

Headteacher Ollie Bray said, “We are so pleased with the high quality of the work that is going to go on display in the Iona Gallery. Our Art Department and lots of our pupils have worked really hard to get the exhibition ready and it would be great to see as much local support as possible for such a talented bunch of young artists.”

The show, which features work from across all year groups, previews TODAY, Thursday 27th November 5-7p.m. It is then open  on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th from 11am to 4pm.

Our National 5 Early Years and Childcare Course have been exploring tactile play.

As part of this work they have squashed, squeezed, rolled, flattened, chopped, cut, scored, raked, punctured, poked and shredded things! Each one of these different actions aids fine motor development in a different way, not to mention hand-eye co ordination and general concentration.

It is also pretty good fun!

As we work to develop our partnerships with the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI). Mr Bray was one of the first to get a look around the new multi-million pound Inverness College Campus at the weekend. We are currently working to develop and widen our range of Senior School Courses in full partnership with UHI – hopefully we will have some exciting announcements in the New Year regarding Hospitality, Engineering, Forestry and how you might be able to start your degree in S6.

Kingussie’s U16 Shinty team successfully retained the Wade Cup in a closely fought tournament at The Dell last Wednesday (19th November 2014).

The Kingussie team completed the league stage of the day unbeaten and without conceding a goal. Ruaridh Anderson (S3), Roddy Young (S3), Iain Robinson (S4), Stuart Mitchell (S4) and Duncan Gorman (S5) all grabbed a goal each to ensure Kingussie secured a spot in the final.

The final saw Kingussie take on a strong Lochaber side and in a very tight game, Iain Robinson managed to grab the only goal of the game and in doing so ensured the trophy made the short trip back along Ruthven Road.

Well done to all the players for a great performance!

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.
