A Fife secondary school has developed a novel way of drumming into pupils and staff the importance of staying at home throughout the coronavirus pandemic.
Kirkcaldy High School’s badge has long featured a distinctive castle in the middle and the Latin motto “Usque Conabor”, which roughly translates as “I strive to the utmost’”
However, the castle has been temporarily replaced with a picture of a typical house in the Lang Toun, while the school’s Twitter handle has been changed to Kirkcaldy High School in the Hoose.
The school’s various departments are encouraging online learning where possible, while headteacher Derek Allan is posting a daily brainteaser to keep pupils’ – and parents’ – grey matter going while they remain at home.
The school has told youngsters: “This is an instruction, not advice.
“You must not spread Covid-19 through careless contact.
“Lives depend on it…maybe yours, maybe your parents, or more likely, your grandparents.”
