Congratulations to Duncan Nimmo (S4) and Joel Smurthwaite (S4) who have been selected as part of the 2019 UK contingent to attend the World Scout Jamboree (WSJ) in West Virgina, USA. The Explorer Scouts will be part of a 45,000 gathering of young people from across 150 countries – the biggest international Scouting event.
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.
Our commiserations go to the senior girls hockey team who lost out to Kinross High School, 4 – 0, in a tough fought match in the Aspire Cup. The girls worked hard and played very well but just lost out to the Kinross team.
Next up for the girls is a match in the Fife Schools Tournament. Good luck!
A coffee morning was held in the school on Friday morning to support the MacMillan Cancer Care’s “World’s biggest coffee morning” event. The school raised a fantastic £428.92 in aid of the cancer charity.
A big ‘thank you’ to everyone who baked, served coffee/tea and bought cakes on the day to make the event such a success.
A huge congratulations to the DAS pupils who struck gold at the 39th Fife Inter Schools Swimming Gala for pupils with Additional Support Needs. The event, organised by Disability Sport Fife, was held at Lochgelly HS on Thursday, 28th September. All five pupils won gold in their respective races.
This is a fantastic achievement by all concerned. Well done to the team and their coaches.
