The Bell Baxter HS Diary page will again feature in “The Fife Herald” beginning this Friday. The school’s news will appear every third week in the newspaper.
We are keen to share the achievements of our pupils with the wider school community and would encourage local organisations to get in touch with us – email Bell Baxter Enquiries or message us via our Facebook page – about our young people.
Today’s “Christmas Jumper Day” has seen a large number of pupils and staff getting involved with this fundraiser in aid of Cupar Foodbank. The S5 girls – Georgia Griffin, Niamh Callan, Lucy Barclay, Tara Tannock, Chloe Laing, Molly Wilson and Laura Douglas – who have been leading this initiative are delighted with the response to their appeal.
We are delighted to announce that 1285 items were collected this morning contributing to the 130 Christmas hampers which will be distributed to local families this weekend.
Our ‘thanks’ go to Ms Macconnochie and Miss McNeill who supported the girls; to TESCO for supplying some trolleys, and a special mention to Finaly Aitken, Alastair Bell, Bailey Carstairs and Paul Bateman who helped the ladies at the foodbank to unload the goods.
Well done to everyone who has got involved with helping Cupar Foodbank support local families in need!
DAS have bee holding their annual Christmas Fayre this morning with support from Fairtrade, S2 Nurture Group, Kilmaron, the Eco Committee and more.
There is a silent auction, handmade gifts, a raffle, home baking and much more!
Entrance is free with tea, coffee and mince pies being served by pupils.
Pupils and staff are invited to wear a Christmas jumper to school on Wednesday, 19th December in exchange for a contribution to our collection on behalf of Cupar Foodbank. Boxes will be available to receive your food and toiletry donations in the Dining Hall on Wednesday morning.
It isn’t too late if you’d like to get involved with this year’s “Toy Drive” appeal. The school is still collecting gifts which will be passed onto local families in need. Gifts can be dropped off at the Main Office and/or to Room 200.
