Fun was had by all at KHS first Valentine's disco! Thanks to Mr Whyte's tutor group for organising this very successful event. All the profits were donated to the PTFF and will help finance the school trips.
The finals took place at Glen Urquhart high school on Friday the 22nd of February involving the best two teams from the North and the best two teams from the South in each of the age/gender group sections. As Kinlochleven s2/3 had finished second they were to play reigning champions Golspie in their opening semi-final game. Kinlochleven lost the tie 4-2 to eventual champions Golspie although showed some promising signs that they will grow into an excellent side. The boys seemed to lack confidence to begin with and were very quiet, however as time went on they grew into the game and fought back with a few blistering strikes from Josh McFatridge. In the final 3/4th play off again Kinlochleven took on a very strong Glen Urquhart side with the backing of a home crowd. A lot of changes were made to the team from the first game and some excellent possession football was played without ever really troubling the home side, 0-0 at half time. In the second half the crowd rose for Glen Urquhaart and they went on to win the game 4-0 while a snow blizzard blazed across the playing fields.
On Wednesday 18th February we welcomed Ms Rebecca Machin as the new Head Teacher of Kinlochleven High School. She joins us following a spell as Deputy Head Teacher in Wick High School.
She comes to the school at a time of change as we work towards the new Higher qualifications in all our subjects for the first time.
