Our National 5 Practical Woodwork class enjoyed a visit to local business, Bspoke Joinery Ltd. The pupils were able to look around the workshops; find out a bit more about careers in the industry, and have their questions about woodworking answered by the staff.
Thank you to everyone at Bspoke Joinery for taking the time to show our pupils around the workshops.
Mr C. Lambrou
[Class Teacher, Technologies]
Health & Wellbeing, Fife Active Schools and Technologies all contributed to a successful P7 Transition Event yesterday at the school.
Fifty of our young leaders delivered sessions – e.g. looking at branding, marketing, designing posters, participating in sport (gymnastics, handball, netball and basketball) – to P7 pupils from our cluster primary schools.
The event was led by fifty of our Young Leaders who delivered all of the sessions throughout the morning.
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.
