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.
Some of the S3 Duke of Edinburgh’s Award class headed for a walk up to the Listening Post at Hawklaw tonight after school. Applying navigation skills learned in the classroom was key tonight.
The sunset above Cupar was beautiful tonight.
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.
Our congratulations go to Lewis Robertson (S4) who was awarded his Bronze level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award today by Ms Manders. Lewis has been working with Howe of Fife coaches (Volunteering section), training his dog (Skills section) and improving his own rugby game (Physical section) as part of the award over the course of the last year.
In addition, Lewis had to complete two-day training and qualifying expeditions to fulfil the Expedition section of the award.
Well done to Lewis and the staff team who support pupils working towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
