Darien – Book tickets
If you haven’t yet booked your tickets, look what you could be missing – Daytona Brereton (S4) singing “Out of the Orient Crystal Skies” from the show.
We’d like to wish all our S4, S5 and S6 pupils the very best of luck for the upcoming exams. We hope all of your hard work sees you getting the results you so richly deserve.
To those leaving to go into work, college, university and beyond – best wishes for the future from everyone at Bell Baxter!
Explorer Craig Mathieson visited Bell Baxter last week to speak to S2 and S3 pupils about the opportunity to participate in the incredible Polar Academy expedition. Billed as the hardest youth programme in Europe, pupils at the school will now have the chance to be considered for the programme.
Selected pupils will be involved with months of intensive training, cardio and endurance, culminating in a ten day expedition to Greenland in a self-guided challenge during Easter 2020.
This is the first time that The Polar Academy has returned to a school. Ms Penrose, who took part in a previous expedition while at Lochgelly HS, said, “I was keen to bring it (The Polar Academy) to Bell Baxter because of the benefits it brought to Lochgelly..(pupils) become real achievers. They believe they can do stuff.”
