Pupils had a number of opportunities to try different things in faculties throughout Thursday and Friday (Activities Day) last week.

In addition to building bridges in Technologies, pupils were challenged to create towers in Maths; pupils made bags with the help of the Fairtrade group; carried out experiments with St Andrews University’s Geobus; found out about the impact of plastic waste on birds with the RSPB; planted flowers with Cupar in Bloom; explored the work of the SPCA, and had some hands-on experience with The Scottish Deer Centre exhibits.

Well done to everyone who came into the school to support Health Week.

The imminent change of timetable always marks the beginning of Health Week, including Activities Day.  Pupils have had the opportunity to participate in both off-site and on-site activities for the last two days.

Pupils have been able to participate in activities such as trampolining (Ryze), playing football golf, paintballing and Eco workshops.

These day are valuable in terms of enhancing staff/pupil relationships in the school….and they are tremendous fun for everyone!

A huge ‘thank you’ to all of the staff and representatives/partners – SRUC, Cupar in Bloom, Fraser Allan, Cupar Fairtrade, Forestry Commission, St Andrews University’s Geobus, Cupar Foodbank, RSPB, SSPCA, Royal Highland Education Team, Police Scotland, The Scottish Plant Hunters and Countryside Alliance – who organised events for our pupils.
