Well done to all of our pupils who, alongside pupils from Madras College, went along as volunteers to support the Fife Active Schools and Triathlon Scotland event this week.
You all did your schools proud at the event! Another great opportunity for developing skills for life.
Our partners Skills Development Scotland produce a weekly list detailing the apprenticeship opportunities and job vacancies within Fife. Keep up to date with newly released vacancies and apprenticeships via Facebook @SDSFife.
Also, check out the school’s Employability Twitter feed to find further opportunities and information about work experience, apprenticeships and employment opportunities.
Modern Apprenticeship opportunities
Updated on 13th May, 2019.
Earlier this session the Pupil Council and School Fund set up an account for us to begin the task of improving the Jannie’s Hoose garden.
The ‘Tuesday morning S2 boys group’ worked alongside the youth workers from the Cupar Youth Café and Lesley Pringle, Community Education Worker, to come up with a focus for the group. We decided to target the two neglected and weed-filled raised beds just behind the Jannie’s Hoose. The boys cleared the ground, painted the planters and decorated them with spray paint. The planters have also been filled with vegetables, a couple of fruit bushes and some herb plants (which we have already begun using when we have a cooked breakfast together!).
The boys thoroughly enjoyed their time working on this project and have gained a Youth Achievement Award which can form part of a Dynamic Youth Award next year.
I would like to thank all those who were involved in helping with this project – in particular, the financial support from the Pupil Council and the School Fund, Lewis, Ian, Lesley and James Strachan from S6 who worked in the garden each week throughout the session.

Fourstones Paper Mill in Leslie are looking for two apprentices – 1 Mechanical Engineering Apprentice and 1 Electrical Engineering Apprentice – for a September 2019 start. The company are looking for enthusiastic individuals who wish to have a career in engineering.
Applicants must have GCSE in Maths, English and Science-based sujects. Our intentions will be to educate successful candidates to HNC standard or Technician level. On attaining this standard, candidates will also receive other training to enable them to meet their full potential.
The company need individuals with a good work ethic, who will respect authority and have a willingness to learn. In return, Fourstones will make the apprentices excellent and confident technicians.
If any pupil is interested in either of these apprenticeships they should contact:
Francis Price (Mechanical Manager)
Jim Carr (Electrical Manager)
Well done to Robert Weddle (S6), Vice-Captain, on being awarded a Sir Michael Knight Scholarship with 2311 Squadron ATC. Robert will now undertake training towards gaining his private pilot’s licence.
