Eco Committee

The Eco Committee were talking to all pupils during assemblies this week to encourage everyone to recycle their rubbish.

The Committee are keen to buy more recycling bins to ensure that the school reduces its landfill and improves its recycling rate.

The pupils produced a short film to help them deliver their message to the rest of the school.

Bus Information - SQA Exams

The transport arrangements for those pupils sitting SQA exams, and who are likely to have to travel outwith the normal school day, are outlined in the “Study Leave - Transportation” document.  In particular, those pupils (S4-S6) normally entitled to free travel will be issued with transport vouchers to enable them to travel outwith school start and finish times.  Pupils should collect transport vouchers from Pupil Reception the week beginning Monday 25th April, 2016.

U18s Fife Schools League Champions

Congratulations go to our U18s senior boys football team who won the Fife League Championship last night (Wednesday) in a highly competitive 2-1 win over Beath High School.  Callum Houston and Matthew Porteus were the goalscorers, meaning the boys ended the season undefeated in the league competition.

This is a fantastic achievement for the team and they should be proud of what they have achieved during the season.  The team will be looking to complete the double next week when they again play Beath High School in the final of the Fife Cup: see details below.

Good luck to the boys and their coach, Mr Lowrie, for next week’s cup final.
