At the end of another very busy and productive year at Raasay Primary School, we were delighted that so many parents, friends, family and community members came along to help us celebrate the children’s successes at our annual Prizegiving. Pupils performed some of their pieces from the Mod and also some other pieces they had been learning. Our special guest this year presenting the prizes was Mrs Ann MacLeod who had tutored Nelly for her Gaelic singing competition at the local Mod. Also in attendance was Iseabail Strachan, Community Arts Development Officer, who worked with the school on a Community Arts based programme creating a Raasay leaflet of local placenames. The leaflet focuses on the area round Holoman and thanks were extended to John William Gillies (Bradan) who came into the school to share his knowledge of the area, totalling over twenty five place names. The leaflet will be on sale in the Shop, Raasay House and The Silver Grasshopper for 50p. All proceeds will go to the pupil Enterprise Fund. Also, we were delighted to show parents the final woven blanket which was a result of all the After School Weaving Club work that Miss Lillian MacLeod had undertaken with the pupils. The children have decided to gift this to the Nursery and all agreed it was lovely to see the finished product. Mrs Wilma Duncan thanked all those attending and also all the various individuals, families, community members, local businesses and groups who help and support us throughout the year. As you can see, the presentation was followed by some delicious cakes and refreshments and we were blessed with beautiful sunny weather which we hope will continue for the holidays!
