Climate Action Conference

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Global Goals Group held their inaugural pupil-led Climate Action Conference on Tuesday.  The aim of the conference was to share the work undertaken by the group this year and to look at developing activities/partnerships for Session 2019-20.

Pupils invited members of local action groups, elected members, members of the Parent Council and other partners into the school, in order to deliver presentations about the work undertaken this year.  A lot has been achieved by group with planning for new projects already in the pipeline.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the group this year.  If you’d like to join the group, please just speak to a member of the staff team, or pop along to one of our weekly meetings.

Archaeological dig opportunity

The school has been invited to undertake a supervised archaeological excavation on the shoulder of East Lomond on Thursday, 30th May.  The Falkland Centre for Stewardship have uncovered previously unknown and unrecorded building remains together with evidence of high status activity from the post Roman and Pictish periods – metal working and horsemanship.

This opportunity is open to 12 pupils who will be excavating in a trench from 10am – 2.30pm.  All equipment is provided, plus one of the onsite team will be available to train and jointly supervise the group.

If your child is interested in the above event, please contact me via email – Shonagh.Barbour@fife.gov.uk – and I will send the necessary documentation to you to complete.  Replies of interest should be sent to me by Monday, 13th May.

Please check out the presentation below for further information.
