PUPILS from Bellyeoman Primary showed they were pitch perfect on the hockey field during a primary schools festival last week.

A total of 18 teams from 12 schools across West Fife took part in the Primary 7 event at Woodmill High School last Wednesday organised by Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council.

The festival was held as part of a series of events in eight sports that take place throughout the year and was supported by Active Schools Fife, the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust, Fife Sports and Leisure Trust and Dunfermline Carnegie Hockey Club.

Having passed and moved their way to success in a Primary 6 indoor hockey festival last month, Bellyeoman’s Primary 7 stars added an outdoor success to that, with Canmore finishing second, Inverkeithing third and Duloch’s B team fourth.

The top two schools now progress through to the Scottish finals that will be held in Glasgow on the hockey pitch used for the 2014 Commonwealth Games next month.

The points awarded to the top three schools after each festival will go towards the final total that will determine the winners of the Sports School of the Year Award, which is presented annually at the Sports Council’s awards ceremony in February.

The winner of the 2016 ‘Small’ school award was St Serf’s Primary, while Townhill were named as the ‘Large’ school winner.
