School cook,Jacqui Rankin,is delighted to see the interest displayed by the children and hopes that by growing their own vegetables it will encourage healthy eating,not only in Shiskine but at Kilmory and Pirnmill schools who are also sharing these vegetables. Some of the children are pictured with the food harvested for that day’s lunch.

Pupils honoured at annual prizegiving

arranhighschool‘Never give up’–that was the advice given to the pupils of Arran High School last Thursday night as they gathered for the annual award ceremony.

Guest speaker Mary Margaret Brown,a urologist and former pupil of Arran High School,gave a rousing and very witty speech in which she spoke fondly of her time at the school and of the teachers,many of whom are still there,that helped her to reach her goal of studying medicine.

‘When you leave the island be thankful that you went to Arran High School,’she concluded,‘and most of all be proud that you come from Arran.’
