It was certainly a game of two halves for the U14s boys’ football team who lost to Grove Academy this afternoon. The boys left themselves with a mountain to climb at half-time, but an excellent second half performance saw the match end 5 – 1 to Grove.
We are delighted to announce that the pupils who participated in the archaeological dig – East Lomond – last June helped to uncover a Bronze Age burial cist. Samples of cremated bones were taken for analysis, telling us that part of the 1st – 7th century site we were excavating actually had earlier activity dating back to circa 2,200 BC.
The excavation will be the featured dig for the BBC’s “Digging for Britain (North)” programme. The episode featuring the dig on East Lomond will include interviews with staff from Falkland Centre for Stewardship and will be aired on Wednesday, 6th December.
We’d like to take the opportunity to thank the staff at Falkland Centre for Stewardship for allowing our pupils to be involved in the project – it has just confirmed how special East Lomond has always been!
Commiserations to the boys tennis team who lost their match against a very strong Firrhill HS side. Tough matches but a great experience for all concerned.
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 school won the Fife Schools “Battle of the Bands” competition last night. Vertigo, our band, competed against 13 other bands with a breathtaking 10 minutes set – the three adjudicators were unanimous in their decision.
The band won £500 to spend in Kenny’s music and, of course, the title ‘Fife Schools Battle of the Bands Champions, 2017’.
If you missed the chance to see Vertigo perform, they will be playing at various other school and community events throughout this term.
