Oban High School celebrated its annual awards ceremony, congratulating the top performing students.
For another year the event was filmed because of Covid, but director Peter Bain said that regardless of the event live or on film – all of the young people who received awards were “an honor to the ‘school and their families and well deserved their prizes and high praise’.
He said: “Their effort, commitment and desire to achieve excellence has been noted by all staff.”
In a regular letter to parents, Mr Bain said he took the opportunity to congratulate every student filmed on the awards night.
“A few other seniors who had left school managed to receive their awards from heads of departments outside or at the entrance to the school.
“Many more, for various reasons, were unable to join us, but their names will all appear on the roll call on the high school website,” he said.
The award ceremony video can also be viewed on the school’s YouTube channel.
In his letter, Mr Bain said the school also held an outdoor concert recently with popular band Oban The Chunks to ensure they have a suitable event to mark S6’s transition to the afterlife. school.
“We thought that with some rule changes we could at least give them a little dance with a big group before they left.
“Those who attended had the chance to meet and say goodbye to the staff and those friends who are about to leave for college or university further afield. Thanks to everyone who organized the event and to the Chunks for playing, ”he added.
