BBC’s “Digging for Britain”

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!

“Battle of the bands” champions, 2017

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.
