Inverness High School get kitted out
RUGBY-playing pupils at an Inverness secondary school can now turn out for matches in brand new kit after raising more than £1000.
For the first time, Inverness High School has a rugby squad comprising boys and girls.
They celebrated the delivery of new kit to the school after raising funds by packing shoppers’ bags in the Tesco Extra store at the retail park in the run-up to Christmas.
Headteacher John Rutter said the formation of the rugby team was down to various factors.
During the construction phase of the city’s west link road, for example, Highland Rugby Club relocated temporarily to the school’s playing field and changing rooms.
Inverness Craig Dunain rugby club had also used the school’s playing field which had prompted further interest.
“We have also been joined by a new PE teacher – Andrew Kellock – who is very keen to develop rugby,” Mr Rutter said.
