Joshua Hynd Roger – Reached the final of the 25m breast stroke.
Jack Hanley – 4th in the final of the 25m freestyle.
Arran Howe – 4th in the final of the 50m breast stroke and had an impressive swim in the 100m freestyle to come 3rd in his heat, beating his PB by 5 seconds.

- ways that parents can be more involved.
Anyone interested in attending the event should email Donna Cessford by Friday, 15th December.
Well done to everyone who was involved with Cupar’s Christmas lights switch on event at the weekend. A special ‘well done’ to the samba band and Vertigo, Fife Schools’ “Battle of the band” winners, for excellent performances during the afternoon.
It was certainly a game of two halves for the U14s boys’ football team who lost to Grove Academy this afternoon. The boys left themselves with a mountain to climb at half-time, but an excellent second half performance saw the match end 5 – 1 to Grove.
