Shine Media Award Winners 2015
27 Jun 2015
Bright and very early on Monday morning, our Independent Women team of Vicka, Marge and Ellie flew to London having been nominated for an award at the Shine Media Awards 2015.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award
26 Jun 2015
27 sixth form girls undertook a 3 day expedition in the Nevis range near Fort William last week. The girls started off the expedition with a trip on the Aonach Mor cable car to practise a bit of navigation before they set off on their own expeditions the next day. The route took the girls on a circular route around Ben Nevis taking in the Steall Waterfall, walking through challenging bogs and of course dealing with the famous Scottish Midges! The girls coped with the misty, rainy weather and showed determination in completing their routes successfully. With only 2 weeks until the qualifiying expedition in the Caringorms - I hope all the blisters heal by then! Well done girls!
