Sunart Centre News - December 2021 update

Gradually things are opening up again in the Centre and a list of current activities is given below. Unfortunately Council policy still does not permit events where school pupils and members of the public mix so public events are open to adults only. Regular weekly events are listed below, but Ardnamurchan High School staff also provide a number of after school activities for pupils that are not listed here. For more details of events and updates please see our website or Facebook page.

Our Gym (Fitness Suite) has also opened and is becoming busy with many new members making good use of our facilities. New members require an induction so please get in touch with us if you are interested – contact details below.

It is anticipated that High Life Highland will be advertising an additional 17.5 hour per week Centre Supervisor post either before Christmas or early in the New Year so if you think you may be interested (or know someone who might) please keep a lookout for job adverts or ask us to let you know when applications are open.

The Sunart Centre will be closed for the Christmas and New Year break from Wednesday 22nd December through to reopening on Wednesday 5th January.

In the new year there will be some changes to the management structure and personnel of the Sunart Centre as current manager Eoghan Carmichael will be retiring at the end of March. High Life Highland (HLH) and the Arainn Shuaineirt Management Committee (ASMC) will be working together with the AHS Head Teacher Chris Millar-Craig to ensure a smooth transition, but there will inevitably be some changes to the way the Centre operates. There will be more information in the next (February) edition of De tha Dol?

04 November 2021Youth Clubs - AHS Pupils Thursdays

Sunart Centre News - November 2021 update

Sarah’s drop-in ‘Monday Cuppa’ Sessions in the Sunart Centre café area every Monday evening from 5-7pm have been a big success with quite a few people dropping in for a chat and discussing how they would like to see things happen in the centre. These will be continuing throughout November and up to the Christmas and New Year break so please feel free to call in any Monday evening to hear about what’s happening and put forward any ideas you may have.

We are keen to begin our Youth Clubs but Covid restrictions will still not permit us to provide these for primary school children, and opportunities for secondary pupils are limited. We plan to begin YOUTH CLUB for SECONDARY PUPILS on THURSDAY evenings. AHS pupils will be invited to stay on after school on Thursdays to engage in as many of the traditional activities as possible or just relax with friends, and free buses will be provided to Acharacle, Ardgour and Lochaline, leaving the Sunart Centre at 8:00pm sharp. Parents are reminded that as always it is the responsibility of their children to ensure they board these buses – the Sunart Centre and High Life Highland cannot be responsible for any young people who fail to catch their bus home – these children will have to contact their parents to make their own arrangements for getting home or any overnight alternative.

 We are hoping that our Gym (Fitness Suite) will be opening soon, albeit with a limited capacity.. Gym slots will be offered as 45 minute sessions to allow for Covid clean down between customers. There are various issues around Covid and the number of machines we will be permitted to have in a limited space that we will be working to resolve  before opening as soon as we can. We will be trialling a new online booking system and we already have several enquiries – if you would like to be kept informed of when the gym will be opening please get in touch.

We also hope to see adult football begin again, probably on Tuesday evenings, and Badminton on Fridays,  and there are plenty of other ideas being put forward that we hope to progress in the near future. Although there are still restrictions on accessing the facilities during school hours, and on evening events that might involve adults and school pupils together, we hope these will continue to be eased over the coming months.

For information on the Sunart Centre or any of our events please visit our website sunartcentre.org, visit us on Facebook (Sunart Centre) or contact Eoghan Carmichael (Centre Manager) on 01687 470267 or by email eoghan.carmichael@highlifehighland.com or contact Sarah Macdonald as above or on 01397 709228.
