We are delighted to announce that Keir Davidson (S1) became British Trampolining Champion in the 11-12 yrs Elite Males category at the weekend. Keir clinched the title with a score of 141.660 beating his nearest rival who finished with 136.790.
This is an outstanding performance by Keir who trains at Tiggers TC, a Dundee-based club.
A big ‘thank you’ to Keir’s father who shared this fantastic news with us and sent us photographs from the event.
Congratulations to Lachlan Murphy (S3) who has been selected for Fife Schools Football regional squad at U15s level.
As part of a squad of sixteen, Lachlan will now compete in the national trophy against the best players from across Scotland.
This age group is particularly strong across Fife, with a number of schools reaching the latter stages of national competitions in recent seasons. Given the player pool, Lachlan’s selection is very impressive.
There will be Parents’ Information Evening on Monday, 24th September at 6pm in the Assembly Hall for anyone interested in participating in the Barcelona Football Tour, October 2019.

We would like to congratulate Ben Swinton and Owen Andrew, both S6, on being selected to represent Fife Select U18s for this coming season. The boys will compete as part of a 16-man squad in the national trophy against elite players from across Scotland.
Mr Lowrie commented, “I attended the final trial last night and the standard of the players on show was outstanding!”
This is a fantastic achievement by both boys and we are very proud of them.
We would like to extend a warm invitation to S1 Parents and Carers to attend our forthcoming Managing Transition Parents’ Information Evening being held on Wednesday, 12th September at 6.30 p.m.
The transition to high school for some youngsters can be an anxious time. At our P7 Information Evening in June, you may recall Eugene Adams, Team Leader within the Primary Mental Health Team, introduced himself to you. Eugene works closely with the school in supporting youngsters who suffer from anxiety. As a follow up to his brief input at our P7 Information Evening, Eugene is to run a workshop on 12th September aimed at offering tips and advice on how parents can best support and guide pupils through this stage in their lives.
The format of the evening will allow for informal discussion and dialogue to take place and is targeted at parents only.
Please contact the school (01334 659459) before Wednesday to book a place on the workshop.
