As part of our S1 Curriculum each class has to plan, organise and perform a 25min assembly in front of the rest of the school. The project is completely pupil led. The topic is still ‘top secret’ but lots of good ideas were being brainstormed today as well as a lot of delegation of jobs and tasks.

Come along to a KHS assembly (and get a free cup of coffee!)

Junior Assemblies are every Tuesday 9:00 – 9-25 and Senior Assemblies are every Wednesday 9:00 – 9:25. Any parent or member of the community is welcome to come along, sit at the back and listen – we will even give you a cup of tea or coffee! Just arrive at about 08:45 and sign into the school office.

Well done to the senior pupils who led a brilliant assembly today to commemorate Remembrance Day.

The pupils and staff then paused for 2 minutes at 11 o’clock to pay there respects.

Media Group KHS Video [WARNING: sense of humour required]

Scott Fryatt, Craig Smillie and James Finlayson (all in S5) were recently set a challenge to make a video about the school as part of the media group. The video was premiered in assembly last week and had pretty much all of the staff and pupils in stitches. If you don’t know the school and pupils involved then you might struggle with some of the off-the-wall humour. As school we pride ourselves on high standards (just look at the production quality) and not taking ourselves too seriously (we think that bit speaks for itself!). Well done boys – a great effort!

Holocaust Memorial Day Assembly

Holocaust Memorial Day 2014As you might know we have an S1 – S3 Assembly on a Tuesday for 25 minutes and a S4-S6 Assembly on a Wednesday at Kingussie High School. We believe assembly is an important part of the school week. It is a great chance to celebrate achievement, have input from guest speakers, reflect on the wider world and to acknowledge global events.

The theme of this weeks assembly was the Holocaust (Holocaust Memorial Day was the 27th January). The assembly was led by a number of S1 pupils (who have been studying The Boy in the Striped Pajamas in English) and also two senior pupils who have recently visited  Auschwitz.

It was a moving, well performed and educational piece.
