teams of pupils from Kirkcaldy High School kept their cool under pressure when they took part in a nationwide Climate Week Challenge on Monday.

And it paid off when one team made it through to the next stage of the country’s biggest enviromental competition.

Twenty-four S1 pupils took part in the challenge which aims to get as many people as possible to come up with creative ideas to help the environment.

The winning team was Abby Hitchcock, Kevin Innes, Sam Keddie, Kirstin Moore, Owen Robertson and David Smith.

Its idea was ‘Kirkcaldy High School – Energy Self-Sufficient.’ which involved designing a variety of ways for the school to generate its own energy to be used to regulate the temperature within individual classrooms.

Gillian Lindsay, geography teacher, said: “It was an engaging and useful way for our pupils to continue learning about the effects climate change is having on our planet and also an opportunity to develop strategic thinking.’’
