We are delighted to announce that the pupils who participated in the archaeological dig – East Lomond – last June helped to uncover a Bronze Age burial cist. Samples of cremated bones were taken for analysis, telling us that part of the 1st – 7th century site we were excavating actually had earlier activity dating back to circa 2,200 BC.
The excavation will be the featured dig for the BBC’s “Digging for Britain (North)” programme. The episode featuring the dig on East Lomond will include interviews with staff from Falkland Centre for Stewardship and will be aired on Wednesday, 6th December.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank the staff at Falkland Centre for Stewardship for allowing our pupils to be involved in the project – it has just confirmed how special East Lomond has always been!
Commiserations to the boys tennis team who lost their match against a very strong Firrhill HS side. Tough matches but a great experience for all concerned.
The Study Support Programme due to run until March, 2018 is now available for download. Pupils should check the programme to ensure they know when sessions run throughout the week. As you can see from the programme, a number of sessions have additional pieces of information attached to them – please read the programme carefully.
Just a reminder, pupils are responsible for making their own arrangements to get home following attendance at a study support session.

Bell Baxter is again acting as a collection point for the “Toy drive” initiative being run in the area. Donations will be collected and distributed to children and families in need. If you would like to donate a gift – it must be new, unwrapped and, unfortunately, cannot be handmade – then please drop the item off at the Main Office.
All the gifts collected in the area will stay within NE Fife.
The initiative will run until Thursday, 30th November.

Some of the S3 Duke of Edinburgh’s Award class headed for a walk up to the Listening Post at Hawklaw tonight after school. Applying navigation skills learned in the classroom was key tonight.
The sunset above Cupar was beautiful tonight.
