S6 Leavers BBQ

This year’s S6 cohort were the last ever group to have attended Wick High School in the former building, as they were in S1 when we made the big move to the new Campus in 2017. We would traditionally (pre-COVID) mark the end of their school career with a meal in the Norseman Hotel. However, this year, the pupils wanted to end their time in school…in school! On Friday 10th June, on a bright, blustery – but warm – day, 60 pupils and staff joined together in the school grounds to have a BBQ with traditional sports races. Food was cooked by Caithness BBQ (Wick High’s very own Mr Mackintosh) and we tucked in to cheeseburgers, hotdogs, chicken wings and buffalo chicken sliders. The afternoon was a lovely, very chilled event, with our S6 wearing their very special leavers hoodies. The races were incredibly competitive with two ending in a photo finish! Special mention needs to go to medal winners Lucy Durrand, Ryan Henderson, Eimear Henderson and Alice Dunnet. We wish our S6 – who were such a credit to the school during the COVID recovery phase – all the very, very best for the future.
