FIRST year pupils at Kirkland High School have been getting into the Olympic spirit by using the Games as inspiration to design cakes as part of a challenge set by Buckhaven bakers RT Stuart.

The event was organised by the school to provide an opportunity for its youngest pupils to learn enterprise skills, with the bakers looking to see if there were any designs that could be incorporated into a new product.

With enthusiasm in no short supply it was Class 1PA that beat off competition from five other teams to be awarded the winning trophy by judges John Brown (retired depute), Ronnie Ross (headteacher) and Alan Stuart, of the baker’s.

Mr Ross commented: “Enterprise skills form an important part of the curriculum. The Stuarts Challenge is a very successful and worthwhile activity for our pupils as it helps to develop the skills of leadership and team-working in a fun but challenging way. We are extremely grateful to Mr Alan Stuart.”
