In addition, the Scottish Refugee Council will bring together a number of partners to celebrate the valuable contribution made by refugees to life in Scotland in the form of the Refugee Festival Scotland.
Our S1 pupils have been working hard on their Excellent Projects for a few months now. The creative responses to the books read by the pupils have been incredible – there are some really imaginative pieces.
Visitors to the school can currently see a display of some of the pieces in the main foyer. A second display is available for viewing in the LRC.
More photographs to follow.

Our senior pupils had a fantastic prom night at Kilconquhar Castle Estate on Friday. The prom provided the perfect end to the pupils’ school life at Bell Baxter.
A well done to everyone who attended the prom, Kilconquhar’s Manager remarked on the high standard of behaviour shown by the pupils.
A huge ‘thank you’ to the staff and pupil team who organised the event.
We would like to take the opportunity to send all our leavers off with our ‘best wishes’ for the future!
