Lewis Independent Christian School recently held their fourth annual light lunch at the MA Macleod Memorial hall, Stornoway.
Public demand meant that the tasty soups and baking were soon in short supply and in total more than £1,500 was raised.
A school spokesman said: “We are always humbled and delighted by the generosity and goodwill of our supporters at these light lunches, as well as deeply grateful for God’s encouragement to us.”
The light lunch success is the latest in what has been a good year for LICS. Beginning with the recruiting of a new headmaster in August 2011, as well as an increased roll.
The school also enjoyed a very positive follow-on visit from HMIe’s lead Inspector of Independent Schools.
Next on the agenda is the hosting of a public meeting on the benefits of Adistinctly Christian education.
This meeting, taking place on April 27th at Stornoway Town Hall, will consist of short presentations from staff and past pupils and a brief address on the need for Christian education.
