St Columba's pupils celebrate success!
Pupils at St Columba's High School in Dunfermline have been recognised for their "commitment and hard work" at a special end of term event.
The S1-S3 pupils from the school's three houses - Mandela, Romero and Teresa - were given awards at the school's Celebrating Success Ceremony.

Archbishop Leo Cushley was guest of honour and told pupils: "Receiving awards for achievements is a lovely thing.
"But it also means that much is now expected of you.
"We now hope and look forward to you achieving your goals, so that you in turn you will take up your duty to help build a better, safer, happier society for everyone."

He earlier enjoyed a sit-down session with senior pupils, to find out more about their future plans while discussing his own life in the priesthood and beyond.
Headteacher Kevin O'Connor said: "We are very happy to welcome Archbishop Cushley to St Columba's, celebrating 50 years of the school building in Dunfermline, and particularly delighted for His Grace to share in the achievements of our young people who have shown their commitment and hard work and who have been part of the St Columba's ethos to achieve their best."
