This morning our S6 pupils were given a Wick High School tartan tie in recognition of their time in the school. The ties were gifted to the pupils on behalf of our Parent Council and it is hoped that this event will become a regular occurrence in coming years, both to mark our senior students’ final year in the school as well as standing as an encouragement to younger students to incorporate the tartan in to their school clothing as we look to designing other items using the unique pattern such as scarves, bags and even shoes.
In attendance at this morning’s proceedings was Mr Martin Gill of Blackstairs Highlandwear who, along with Mr Craig Ross, was instrumental in the creation of the tartan.
Please watch this space in coming days for details on how you can purchase a tie of your own.
Many thanks to R MacDonald of Northern Studios, Wick, for these photographs.
