Sponsored Walk

Our annual Sponsored Walk took place in glorious sunshine on Tuesday 24 June 2014. Pupils in S2-S5 walked the old railway line from Elgin to Lossiemouth and back, raising thousands of pounds in the process for the school fund. They were ably supported, supervised and encouraged by our S6 students. We thank all those who participated, supervised, sponsored us or helped us in any way. We look forward to hearing the final total raised. (Special thanks to Lossiemouth Football Club).

The panellists were Ms Mary Scanlon, Conservative MSP for Highlands and Islands and Spokesperson for Education; Mr Sean Morton, Labour Councillor for Fochabers and Lhanbryde; Mr Richard Lochhead, SNP MSP for Moray and Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affair and Environment; Mr John Finnie, Independent MSP for Highlands and Islands. Our thanks go to the Modern Studies department, and, in particular, Ms Emma Hendry, PT Modern Studies for organising the event.
