  • Lochgelly High School S5 pupil Jake Fairhurst was the recipient of a £500 award from the Mary Leishman Foundation. Jake is an accomplished piper and a first class ambassador for the school, who plays in the Lochgelly High School Pipe Band. The award will allow Jake to purchase his own bagpipes. Jake received his award at a ceremony in November, held in the Kingdom Suite at East End Park, Dunfermline and was congratulated and interviewed by Jim Leishman.

  • S1 pupils recently attended a Residential in Lendrickmuir. Pupils took part in a variety of activities, ranging from a Night Walk to climbing Jacob’s Ladder. The diverse experiences helped pupils develop their confidence and their skills in team building and built on the work covered earlier in the session when pupils spent three days on a Resilience Programme in school, learning about the importance of challenging themselves and not giving up. S1 pupil Cameron McGregor said “Jacob’s Ladder seemed very scary at first but once you’re up there it’s fine” and Lewis Fotheringham said “Lendrick Muir was a fun and exciting place where we had campfires and sang songs and we also went on a Night Walk in the dark where we had to go through obstacles and hold on to wires so we knew where to go.”

  •  All S4 pupils took part in workshops delivered by Live-N-Learn, during which they learned the importance of planning and preparing for exams, believing in themselves and having the determination and resilience to do well. Pupils worked on set tasks, preparing a study timetable and considered different revision techniques. They had the opportunity to work in teams and help each other build confidence. This ties in with the work of the school on ensuring all pupils develop a Growth Mindset , whereby they keep working at tasks, even though they may be challenging, and don’t allow themselves to give up as soon as they find something difficult; a valuable lesson in life! Staff also attended a seminar at the end of the school day, to hear about the work the S4 pupils had done, so this can be built upon.

  • The S2 football team has been busy this term competing in several Fife League, Fife Cup and Scottish Cup matches. The team enjoyed an away tie in the Scottish Cup to the Cliffs of Arbroath to play local school Arbroath Academy. The away team proved to be too strong for Lochgelly and won the game 7-4, but there was a hatrick from Ben Nardone and goal of the season so far from Reagan Crowe. In the Fife League, Lochgelly has beaten Glenwood and narrowly lost out to St Andrews and Auchmuty and is still involved in the Fife Cup after beating St Columbas HS. The boys have represented the school fantastically on every occasion, in particular the most recent game against Auchmuty in which they worked superbly as a team. Weekly training continues and everybody involved is looking forward to more fixtures in the new year.

  • Lochgelly High School girls’ football team played their first ever match against Buckhaven High School on Tuesday the 11th of November.  A large Lochgelly support cheered the girls on to a fantastic 6-3 victory.  Each member of the squad contributed to the result, however special mention must go to Caitlin Ross who scored five goals.  The match was played in great spirit and credit must also go to Buckhaven who played some excellent football on the night.
