Lochaber pri­mary pupils pre­pare to take big step up to high school

The Oban Times - - News -

PRI­MARY seven pupils have been putting their first foot for­ward to­ward the next step of their ed­u­ca­tional ca­reer.

Grad­u­ates from Lochaber High School’s as­so­ci­ated pri­maries were vis­it­ing the sec­ondary school last week in prepa­ra­tion for start­ing first year af­ter the sum­mer.

The 180 pupils – the largest year group in re­cent years – fol­lowed a full S1 timetable for the week as well as tak­ing part in a range of tran­si­tion ac­tiv­i­ties.

A well-at­tended par­ents’ evening was held on Thurs­day June 16 as part of the tran­si­tion pro­gramme or­gan­ised by Yvonne Clark, prin- cipal guid­ance teacher. The aim of the tran­si­tion pro­gramme is to al­low pupils to find their way around the school, get to know their new class­mates, meet their teach­ers and al­lay any fears about mov­ing to sec­ondary school. Jim Suther­land, head teacher, said: ‘Feed­back on the week has been very pos­i­tive from pupils and par­ents, and we’re very much look­ing for­ward to wel­com­ing our new first years back to the school in Au­gust.’

Largest group in years - 180 pupils will start high school af­ter the sum­mer hol­i­days.
