Scottish Schools Showjumping

Well done to everyone who represented Bell Baxter at the Scottish Schools Showjumping, Howe Equestrian on Sunday, 29th October. Jessika Rennie placed 5th individually in the 85cm out of 80 riders. Our team of Ailsa Roberts, Robyn Black, Emma Webster and Sophie McDonald came 4th in the 1m class with Ailsa Roberts also picking up 2nd place individually in the same class which had 40 riders in it.

Well done again to all riders.

Borneo training expedition

The training expedition for the Borneo expedition was held in Aviemore this weekend.  Thirty-seven pupils and six staff spent Saturday and Sunday working on the skills they will need to use as part of this summer’s expedition – team building, problem-solving, menu planning, cooking, personal safety, hygiene and first aid to name but a few.

Hopefully, the weather the will be slightly warmer in Borneo – with the exception of the trek on Mount Kinabalu – than it was in chilly Aviemore.

Higher Food Technology visit Jannettas Gelateria

Jannettas Gelateria, St Andrews, welcomed the Higher Food Technology class this week to show the pupils around the business and finally allow them too see and make their Blairneuk Hassel Pear ice cream; the class picked and prepared the fruit in Cupar last week.

The newly created ice cream was given the thumbs up by everyone – pupils, staff, Jannettas team and customers!  This ice cream has been a resounding success and Jannettas have said the product will be used in association with a special dinner organised by Viv Collie, Savour St Andrews, in November.

“It’s been a real pleasure to have you involved in such a special project.  Taking fruit from tree to table and cone.  Giving you an insight into the food and drink industry and the roles available within.  Offering a chance to consider possible future positive work destinations within Fife and beyond.

We look forward to other opportunities to work together with you on other equally exciting collaborations.” (Jannettas Gelateria)
