WEST FIFE sports are back in action as youngsters attended a Run, Jump and Throw festival.

The event, supported by the Dunfermline Carnegie Dunfermline Trust and Active Schools, was run in conjunction with Pitreavie Athletic Club and the Dunfermline and West Fife Sports Council (DWFSC) and saw a total of 400 children from 16 schools take part on November 23.

Lindsay Weir, DWFSC secretary and treasurer, told the Press; "Pre-COVID, we were running about 22 festivals throughout the school year. Now we're just getting back up and running and beginning to get back into some sort of normality.

"This particular festival that we do, it includes all the kids in the class. We have a hockey event and a tennis one and it's the best kids in the class that get picked, whereas this one is all-inclusive, they all get to have a shot and represent their school, which is great.

"It's a very noisy event and they all cheer on their schools when they're doing their running, jumping and throwing so it's good fun!"

Young volunteers from Queen Anne High School also helped out on the day to make sure the event ran smoothly.

Dalgety Bay Primary School took first place while St Margaret's were runners-up and Lynburn Primary School finished third.

Neil Haldane, Active Schools co-ordinator, said: "It was another well-attended DWFSC event by local primary schools ably supported by the young volunteers from Queen Anne High School. It's great to see schools getting back into competitive sport festivals."
