Rector’s message

It is almost the end of term and, as ever, it has been hectic over the last few weeks.  A recent flu bug has impacted on pupil attendance and a number of staff have also been absent.  We wish everyone a return to full health in the run up to Christmas.

On a positive note, many staff and pupils have been involved in a range of events and activities beyond the classroom with recent success in sport and dance.  Pupils have also been raising money for charity, while others enjoyed a ‘Technologies Careers Day’ and a Japanese Language and Culture Youth Conference.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a pleasant and, hopefully, relaxing Christmas.  We would like to send our very best wishes to everyone for 2018.

Cricket Scotland: Past, present & future

Cricket Scotland launched a photographic exhibition located in Hampden Park, Glasgow.  The exhibition displays a range of cricket memorabilia re-telling the story of the game and its impact on life in Scotland.

One of the photographs in the exhibition shows a Bell Baxter HS cricket side from 1972(?).  Do you know any of the “likely lads” featured in the photograph?

The display will run until May 2018 as part of the Sports Heritage Scotland series.

School app

Information enabling pupils, parent and carers to register for the school app is being sent out this week.  Emails have already been sent to S1 (Monday), S2 (Tuesday) and S5 (last term) parents.  Please register – code available in email – to receive notifications.

Bringing parental involvement alive in Fife

A “Bringing parental involvement alive in Fife” event is to be held at Rothes Hall, Glenrothes on Saturday 20th January, 2018 running from 10.00am – 12.30pm.

This event aims to bring together parents from across the whole of Fife to share information relating to parental engagement, and to provide an opportunity to discuss:

  • recent developments in education, nationally,
  • the Parental Involvement Strategy for Fife,
  • ways that parents can be more involved.

Anyone interested in attending the event should email Donna Cessford by Friday, 15th December.

Toy Drive

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.
