NEW STAFF: Finding staff to work in rural areas is exceptionally difficult. We at Oban High School have been running social media campaigns; offering financial and accomodation incentives and I have travelled home and abroad trying to recruit. Our local community has also helped spread the message that Oban High School is a great school; with good exam results; great pastoral care and the broadest curriculum in the country in a beautiful and vibrant community. I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to making our school such an attractive place to work and helped encourage people to apply for our vacancies. The following 10 staff have just been appointed: Art and Design: Sheila Stewart English: Beth Brooks Taylor and Tara Carmichael History and Modern Studies: Catriona Morrison and Alison MacFarlane PE: Calum Vardy RMPS: David Duncan and Hanna Pyne Science: Hanna Stevenson Technology: Matt Walker In addition to these staff, we will take on 4 new probationers in August. We were unable to appoint a suitable Maths teacher and are now on a third advert. We are also looking for 3 support staff posts. So, please keep spreading the word that OHS is a great place to work and Oban and Lorn a lovely place to live. Thanks! PB

Well done to the 2018 Laurinburg Exchange Team who provided the fabulous cakes for our final tea break in the old school. They managed to raise £164 towards their funds.
