S1 – Wednesday periods 5 and 6

S2/3 – Monday periods 5 and 6

School of Shinty is a Camanachd association supported initiative; this provides the opportunity for students to be a part of an additional class in S1-S3. The students will train and improve their skills in Shinty specifically but more importantly they will develop the underlying values of Oban High School.

School of Shinty

Students will be expected to uphold the values and meet the expectations of the class. Students sign a contract and classes will be by extraction; any missed work will be the responsibility of the student to keep up to date and the coaches will help with this. Students will be provided with training kit and there will be playing and competition opportunities throughout the year. In S3 the students will double the School of program with their National 4 Physical Education; this will help them to achieve an additional National qualification or help them to work towards a full National 5 in Physical Education by the end of S4.

In 2020/21 the start time is still to be confirmed but the classes will run at the following times throughout the year:

S2/3 – Monday period 5 and 6
S1 – Wednesday period 5 and 6

The expectation is that students in School of Shinty will attend all curricular and extra-curricular sessions. The Extra Curricular sessions are on a Tuesday after school on the Astro pitch 4-5:30pm. These are run in partnership with local club coaches. All of the School of Shinty classes are open to Boys and Girls at Oban High School.
