West Lothian Dance Competition

 

Team Inveralmond put in an absolutely fantastic performance at the West Lothian Dance competition, held on Wednesday night, with both teams performing extremely well.

The junior team performed a jam packed street style extravaganza that wowed the crowd. The girls put lots of time and effort into choreographing and practicing the routine and it definitely paid off as their performance was spot on. Well done Inveralmond juniors!

YPI Finals

 

On Tuesday 24th October we held our annual YPI (Youth Philanthropy Initiative) finals event.

Groups of young people from S5 presented to a panel of judges and their peers in the assembly hall. Each group was battling it out for a whopping £3000 to give to a local charity. Due to the quality of presentations the judges took a while to pick a winner and eventually decided that C.H.A.S. would receive the money.

Paris Trip 2017


On Saturday 7th October, 38 senior phase pupils set off for Paris along with Mrs Moore, Mrs Smith, Miss Bailey and Mr Shaw.

We enjoyed an overnight ferry from Hull to Zeebrugge where some of our pupils had a dance off with pupils from another school!

On arrival in Paris on Sunday, we started our sightseeing from the River Seine with a lovely boat trip where we were able to take in the main sights of the city for the first time. We also had a short time to visit Notre Dame Cathedral and were lucky to catch the bells playing as we arrived.

On Thursday 5th October, Craig Pake from the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) came to present to pupils from the S3 Graphics classes. The NLB is responsible for maintaining all the lighthouses around Scotland and Craig travels to all these locations as part of his job.

The pupils in Graphics are working together to design their own lighthouses with various other features, and the best groups shall travel into the Head Office in George Street, Edinburgh to present to the Chief Executive Officer and other prominent members of the NLB.

Home Economics Update


At Inveralmond Community High School we strive to ensure we provide all learners within the Broad General Education a curriculum which meets their needs whilst matching their entitlement to experience all subjects we deliver across S1-S3. However, whilst we aim to meet this goal for all learners across all levels within the school, there are occasions where staffing availability can restrict the subjects that are offered to learners at certain levels.

Due to recent staffing changes within our Home Economics Department, we no longer have a full time teacher within the subject.
