A group of design and technology students at Kirkcaldy High School have put their heads together to get involved with the Dunnikier Park Country Fair.

The community event takes place on Sunday and it will include a junior sports day – an idea that came from the pupils.

Katy Simpson-Wands, design and technology teacher, explained the school wanted the students to use their design and problem-solving skills in a real-life situation.

She said: “The way they have applied themselves, their energy, imagination and enthusiasm has been amazing.”

There will be a series of traditional races including the egg and spoon race, sack race and three-legged race.

Ms Simpson-Wands continued: “The races are mainly for children and there will be age categories, but they’ve built in scope for adults to get involved too. There will be prizes for everybody, and the students have added a touch of the Olympics with certificates, a podium ceremony and gold, silver and bronze medals for the lucky winners.”

The certificates have been designed by the students and the group has been involved in raising £300 for the fair.

The Dunnikier Park Country Fair runs from noon until 4.00 p.m. on Sunday, with a wide variety of family friendly activities taking place.
