Sixth years re­warded for sup­port

The Oban Times - - News -

ALL LOCHABER high school sixth years have re­ceived a Saltire Chal­lenge Award for sup­port­ing the tran­si­tion of new pupils from pri­mary to sec­ondary school.

The school works with Vol­un­tary Ac­tion Lochaber to recog­nise volunteering ef­forts of pupils through the award.

Sup­port for learn­ing teacher, Lynn MacAl­lis­ter, ex­plained: ‘The bud­dy­ing sup­port pro­vided by our S6 pupils to pri­mary seven chil­dren from all of our as­so­ci­ated pri­mary schools has been in­stru­men­tal in as­sist­ing the smooth tran­si­tion into a busy high school en­vi­ron­ment. A num­ber of our new S1 pupils have ad­di­tional sup­port needs and S6 pupils have made them feel welcome and sup­ported dur­ing their first ex­pe­ri­ence of high school.’
