Thanks to the efforts of the dedicated parent groups and staff within each school together with the support of local businesses and organisations the event, which took place on Saturday 7th September, brought together the school families from St Agatha’s RC, Mountfleurie and Parkhill primaries. SchoolFest’s purpose, to celebrate being part of the Levenmouth community was a fantastic example of partnership working at its best.
SchoolFest was opened by Leven’s Rose Queen, Lucy Shepherd, a former pupil of St Agatha’s RC Primary. As part of the community event, a football tournament was held prior to the event and the winning teams received their awards on the day. There was live music from Parkhill Primary pupils, singing from the Mary Bradford singers and from former pupils from the schools, displays by the Fiona Gallagher Dance School, Expressions Dance Group and Enigma Gymnastics, and the crowds joined in with Zumba led by Karen Waggett.
Active Schools delivered Bikeability sessions, there was a popular Smoothie bike, with fruit provided by Sainsbury’s Leven, and emergency services brought their vehicles on site to explore. Food and craft stalls and fairground rides provided much enjoyment.
SchoolFest was also joined by Living Streets who launched this year’s WOW Walk to School initiative, in which all 3 schools are involved. Strider their mascot made an appearance too. Police Scotland Youth Volunteers were on sight to help at the event and local businesses supported the event in a number of ways.
All the money raised will be put to the school funds for all 3 local primary schools, ensuring all pupils benefit from the event.
SchoolFest demonstrates the commitment of the Leven community to partnership working and all involved are looking forward to continuing to strengthen these community links with future events.
