Old traditions, new beginnings
Our Duke of Edinburgh's Award group is now underway, meeting once a month at the Cameron Youth Centre.
Kendal Mountain Tour at Eden Court
We had a bit of fun at the weekend appearing as part of the Kendal Mountain Tour at Eden Court. They were inviting community activitists to join them on each leg of their UK-wide tour, and we were the lucky ones chosen for Inverness.
"Stay outside until it's time for tea!"
These are holidays like they used to be! Easter 2022 sold out, so please help us plan ahead for the summer. Well done to the 48 children who braved some really cold conditions. Goes to show that with a bit of warm clothing and a big wood to explore, even P1 children can stay outside for 6 hours non-stop and still be warm & happy.
DofE Gold Open Award Group under way
This is our first year as a DofE Centre, and we're so fortunate to have come into contact with this amazing group of young people. It takes guts to step outside of your comfortable school or college social circles and commit to doing DofE Gold with people you've never met. In the photo you've got participants from four schools across Inverness & the Black Isle, with Inverness College UHI represented as well.
