Well done to Madeline Smiles (S1) who picked up a bronze medal while representing Bell Baxter at the British Schools’ Judo Championship held in Sheffield on Sunday. This is a terrific achievement by Madeline at a national judo competition.

A number of our pupils and teams have had a very successful season this year: see below.
Under 14 Boys
Our U14s Boys team has successfully qualified for the final play-offs in the Fife competition and will play their semi-final match this week.
Under 18 Boys
The U18 boys have won their league conference with a 100% record and will now play Auchmuty HS in a league semi-final play-off at the end of March. If successful, the team will play in the league final due to be held in the last week of term.
The U18s team have also qualified for the semi-final of the Fife Cup and will play Kinross HS at Kinross on 19th March. The final of the cup competition will be held at Bayview Stadium on the evening of Friday, 26th April. Hopefully, the team can make the final but they will need to negoatiate a tricky semi-final match.
Owen Andrew (S6) started up front for Scotland U18s Schoolboys against Nothern Ireland last week in the Victory Shield. The boys lost 1-0 but it is a major honour for Owen starting this international game.
Good luck to all our teams as they head towards the end of their sporting seasons.
Congratulations to both of our senior netball teams on winning their respective quarter-final matches against Waid Academy. The Bell Baxter teams now play each other for a place, for the first time ever, in the Senior Fife Netball Final.
Good luck to both teams!
