Tomorrow’s engineers

Some of our S1 classes, as part of a Science and Maths collaboration, worked with “Tomorrow’s Engineers” last week.  The pupils learned all about energy resources; the importance of renewable energy as the world’s population grows; STEM careers, and how engineers apply STEM learning to solve problems.

In addition, the final challenge – The Electric Car Challenge – saw groups of pupils designing, building, testing and racing their model electric cars.

We were delighted that this project also supported the school’s Global Goals – gender equality and renewable energy – agenda.

Tribute to Mary Law

“It is with much sadness that we learned Mary had passed away last week.  Mary and her husband Ronnie have been great stalwarts in the community for many years through ‘Cupar in Bloom’.  Mary’s involvement with ‘Cupar in Bloom’ and other eco projects meant that she had enjoyed a close relationship with the school.  I will send our condolences to Ronnie and their family.”

Philip Black (Rector)

“The Eco Group were greatly saddened to hear of Mary’s passing.  Throughout the years Mary and the ‘Cupar in Bloom’ team have supported us with all of our endeavours.  We learned a great deal from Mary and, as a group, we have many fond memories of her which we shall cherish forever.”
