Last day at school for Duncan

The school day has ended for the last time for Duncan Ferguson, as he retires after 21 years as rector of Plockton High School.

Islay-born Mr Ferguson has contributed greatly to the school and local area during his tenure and will be greatly missed. Under his leadership the school has developed boatbuilding and crofting courses, seen various educational and sporting success — including the development of shinty-hurling links with Ireland — the promotion of Gaelic and the establishment of the National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music in 2000.

A presentation was made to Mr Ferguson during last Friday’s end-of-term assembly. Pictured presenting him with a landscape of Plockton Bay are head girl Jodie Callander and head boy Duncan Newton-Grant, along with their deputies, Shannon Campbell and Ruaridh James.
