Woodmill win the Scottish Silver Plate for the second year a row
After narrow wins in their quarter final and semi final ties, both by one goal margins, Woodmill’s seniors opened up in their final against Wiiliamwood High School of East Renfrewshire and ran out winners by 37 goals to 22. This is a great result by a fairly young team to retain the Plate. No pressure for next session!.

A dominant performance saw the U14 team win convincingly in the final of the 2012 Fife Schools’ Shield.

Beath, who were worthy finalists and played with great spirit, could not contain the tour de force that is the U14s.

WOODMILL CLUSTER MINI DANCE FESTIVAL
Over 300 pupils from the Woodmill Primary School cluster gathered at Woodmill on Friday, 20th April to participate in a dance festival alongside pupils from Woodmill’s dance group, Footnotes Dance Company.
The quality of dance and choreography was brilliant and all pupils had a wonderful experience. Thanks must go to the primary staff who put in so much extra work to prepare their pupils to participate in this event.
Gillian Armstrong, who teaches P.E. and dance at Woodmill decided to host the event after hearing that Fife would no longer be running the dance festival for all schools in Fife. She said “It was an exciting morning with a great atmosphere of sharing. All pupils performed to a very high standard with very creative and varied dances.”
