Nursery – Children in Need

The Nursery Children had great fun raising money for Children in Need!

We had fun baking, made really cool masks and lots of other things raising £20 in total!

 

Sports Day

As you will all know, we had to postpone our Sports Day last June due to the weather. We finally managed to go ahead on 7th September and the day was a great success. The weather stayed dry and all the school & Nursery children were joined by Struan and Raasay Schools. We all had fun doing the sack race, potato and spoon race, golf target, football shoot and much more!

Archive Centre Visit

The Primary 5 – 7 pupils have been having swimming lessons these past few weeks – and on one of the days each week it was arranged for them to visit the local Archive Centre in Portree. They thoughoroly enjoyed this – here are some photos of thier visit.

CARBOST FC SOCCER 7s

Match Report: CARBOST FC SOCCER 7s – PORTREE

This year’s outstanding Carbost FC squad rounded off their season in fine style at the fourth and last Soccer 7s festival of the campaign, which went ahead on the Portree Astro on Saturday. As they have in each of the preceding three events, the group put in excellent performances in their six games, playing throughout in the right spirit and together as a team.

In their first game they notched up five goals against a young Broadford B team, Tom Rokahr and Charlie Rees bagging a brace apiece and Toby Wallwork weighing in with his first goal and on his ninth birthday. Up next was a stiff test against one of the four Portree teams at the festival. A tight, keenly-contested encounter, our opponents scored a smart breakaway goal, Carbost twice hitting the woodwork as we pressed to equalise but without luck.

The team bounced back through the next four games, coming out on top in three and sharing the spoils in what was a thoroughly entertaining nil-nil encounter with another strong Portree group. Typically, sticking to a good, solid shape, marshalled from centre-back by either Donnie Macdiarmid or Aaron Mackenzie, they played some superb, sharp-passing, attacking football.

One goal in particular caught the eye: a three-way interchange of passes between Tom Rokahr, Donnie Macdiarmid and Charlie Rees, rounded off by the latter’s smart finish. The always busy pairing of Robaidh Anslow and Donnie Macdiarmid also helped themselves to well-taken goals, while the team was anchored by disciplined, no-nonsense performances at full-back by Jess Rokahr and Fergus Mackenzie, or else Finlay Wilson and Amy Robertson.

Fittingly, our midfield dynamo Tom Rokahr marked his final appearance in Carbost orange-and-black with a stunning rocket from the halfway line. That blazing shot was also the perfect summing up of the team’s season as a whole. Collectively, they have made giant strides over the course of the past year and been nothing but a joy to watch and coach. In twenty-two games together this season, they have won sixteen and drawn two.

More importantly, they have never failed to play with smiles on their faces, encourage each other or given of their best. In short, this year Carbost FC has been a great team in every regard.
