A number of pupils in Technologies were fortunate enough to spend the day at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust at the end of term. The pupils had the opportunity to get some valuable practical experience of traditional building skills.
‘Thank you’ again to the staff at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust for sharing their knowledge and skills with our young people.
Congratulations to our S2 DIY pupils for winning the “Fife Pallet by Design” competition by beating teams from Beath HS, Glenwood HS and Lochgelly HS! The girls had to produce a prototype and deliver a sales pitch in order to win the competition.
Well done to everyone who took part and ‘thank you’ to all of the judges.
Mr Lambrou and his S3 group would like to take the opportunity to ‘thank’ everyone at the Scottish Lime Centre Trust for showing them the ropes on Tuesday.
The group had the chance to get some practical experience preparing, chiselling and applying mortar to traditional stone walls. This was a really enjoyable experience for everyone and gave the group some hands on experience of traditional building skills.
The pupils also received certificates for completing an “Introduction to traditional masonry repair” session.

Last week, senior pupils, making the most of a Technologies Faculty partnership, visited the recently renovated and restored Burgh Chambers in Cupar. In addition to a tour of the building, the pupils listened to presentations from the architect and Building Standards Surveyor involved with the work.
A big ‘thank you’ to everyone involved with the project.

As part of a Technologies visit to the Scottish Lime Centre, pupils had the opportunity for a “hands-on” day of training looking at traditional building skills. All the pupils were given a taster of mixing a lime mortar, repairing/repairing a brick wall, lath and plaster, harling and painting a wall.
A huge ‘thank you’ to all of the staff at the Scottish Lime Centre who took the time to work with our pupils.
