Uist, Benbecula, South Uist and Eriskay. Sgoil Lionacleit Community School, the secondary school for these islands, is located on the island of Benbecula. Since it opened in 1988, it has been part of our school's ethos to emphasise the importance of the islands' history and to make pupils aware, through curricular and extra-curricular activities, of the terrible loss of life and the great sacrifice made by so many people from this community in World War I. Also, lest we forget, groups of pupils from Sgoil Lionacleit have journeyed to the fields of Flanders to visit the battlefields and to pay their respects at the graves of the soldiers who died.
