    Benfica Football Trip Fundraising - Kelpies 5K - November 2017

    The countdown is on for this years trip to Portugal. This will see 44 Madras pupils train at Benfica's famous Seixal Academy for 5 days. On top of receiving world class coaching from UEFA certified coaches, pupils will tour the Estadio da Luz, play local opposition and take in a Benfica match amongst other excursions.

    In a bid to raise funds for this, a large number of pupils participated in the Kelpies 5k run in November. This saw the pupils run around the famous monuments and some even managed to beat their personal bests. More importantly, it was great to see the children take responsibility of their own fundraising efforts and this will all help them be prepared for Portugal.

    With more fundraising to come, the experience has only just started however and pupils will participate in some fun activities against their parents as well as bagpack at a local supermarket. All very exciting!
    Girls Football Roundup - Autumn 2017

    This season saw our girls enter the Fife Schools League for the first time. Participation at girls training has remained high as the season has gone on and the team have given increasingly more encouraging performances in both the league and Scottish Cup fixtures.

    In this short time, captain Emma Stewart, has been selected for the Fife Schools Girls team at under 15 level. This is a fantastic achievement and reflects Emma's growing footballing talents. Well done Emma.

    Girls training continues every Wednesday from 3:45-4:45pm at Kilrymont Road. All ages and ability levels are welcome!

    Also, the girls recently took in a trip to see Glasgow City Football Club. The team had a great time as they got to meet several of the players and participated in a Q and A session. It was made even better when Glasgow City won 3-0 in a very entertaining match.

  • FIFE SCHOOLS CHAMPIONSHIPS (1st Leg) - Thursday 23rd November 2017

    Madras College proved to be too hot to handle in the 1st leg of the Fife Championship. With Glenrothes High School pulling out hours before the start it was left to current Scottish Champions Queen Anne High and newcomers Braeview Academy to stop the St Andrew's team.
    all speedway teams
    The racing started with the 'B' event which is designed for all the newcomers to the sport and saw Madras and Braeview line up with 6 riders each and QAHS only 2.

    In their first competitive outing the 14 riders did not disappoint and were absolutely fantastic. Braeview's team made up of girls the stand out performers. Notably Amy Stewart and Amy Healey. If these girls stick in it would not be a surprise if they went on to become a national champion! Rory Thiel raced to a 16 point max to head the field. Jack Neavey one to watch for the future. Matthew McKenzie of QAHS winning his last 2 races proving that he is another candidate for the Fife team in 2018.


    Madras - 79
    Jack Neavey - 15
    Heinog Keating - 9
    Daniel O'Riordan - 11
    Rory Thiel - 16
    Scott Burnett - 13
    Eric Hao - 15

    Braeview - 46
    Amy Stewart - 11
    Amy Healey - 11
    Ellie Robertson - 6
    Naomi Manengi - 5
    Mia Allan - 8
    Zoe Simpson - 5

    Queen Anne - 26
    Matthew McKenzie - 13
    James McKenzie - 13

    The 'A' event was raced using the same format for Div2 racing. Of the 6 riders for Madras, 5 of them raced for Fife in the Div2 2017 campaign. Queen Anne had a much changed team from the one which won the Scottish Champs in June with Cammie Penman the only survivor.

    It was going to therefore a tall order for the Dunfermline side and that proved to be the case with Madras running out comfortable 97-53 winners, racking up nine 7-3's in the process.

    However, as the meeting progressed the Queen Anne boys started getting to grips with the circuit with Alex MacLeod, Cammie Penman and Josh Adamson (with the only win for QA) stopping the rot. Newcomer Kayden Davidson never off the pace will be chapping the door come the 2018 season for the Revolutions.
    Madras speedway teams
    Madras on the other hand showed their experience and gave lessons on starting and power round the track. Vas Hill, Victor Hill and Lewis Alsop with paid maximums.


    Madras - 97
    Vas Hill - 19+1
    Lewis Alsop - 17+3
    Jamie Penny - 16
    Victor Hill - 18+2
    Harris Alsop - 16+1
    David Alexander - 11+3

    Queen Anne
    Cameron Penman - 10+1
    Alex MacLeod - 13
    Jacob Callaghan - 9
    Andrew Keenlyside - 5
    Josh Adamson - 8
    Kayden Davidson - 8

    Overall, the racing was great, close and clean. The newcomers were superb and with their track craft already very good the future is bright, the future is #Fife. Next leg of the championship is at Glenrothes High School on 23rd February 2018.

  • Tennis - 1st December 2017

    The Madras College Tennis Team came through an intense tie to beat Albyn School and reach the next round of the Tennis Scottish Cup. On a bitter Friday morning at St Andrews tennis club, Madras built a 3-0 lead as Peter Mackay and Greg Proctor both convincingly won their singles and doubles matches without dropping a set. However, Albyn kept the first round tie alive after claiming victory in the 1st and 2nd seed singles matches to make it 3-2. Despite the comeback, Gregory and Cameron Dritschel managed to use their stern tactics and brilliant chemistry to clinch a victory in an intense doubles match, winning 7-6, 7-5. This is the first time in three years that Madras has made it through to the next round after previously facing tough opposition. The team are now optimistic about reaching the later stages of the Cup.

    Volleyball - November 2017

    On Tuesday 14th November, Mr Tarvet and volunteer coach Mr Paterson took 15 pupils to Edinburgh to compete in the S2/3 4-a-side Volleyball Festival. Being stuck in the early morning traffic for 30 minutes didn't dampen the enthusiasm of this lively and energetic bunch who were tremendously excited about this opportunity. The day at Napier University games complex was a great success with all sides playing four games in the morning session and four more in the afternoon. This was a super opportunity to play against Scotland's top teams and other emerging sides like ourselves and all players acquitted themselves well - each team winning at least two games. The highlight was the 'Battle of the Twins' when Julia and Natalia's teams were pitched against each other.

    Many thanks go to Colin Paterson for his time on Tuesday evenings to coach the group and for giving up his day to help them at this Festival. S2/3 Volleyball Squad
    Basketball Roundup - Autumn 2017

    Under Mr McClung's guidance the Under 15s and Under 18s were entered into the Scottish Cup for the first time in many years. Each team had a Regional group to compete against and as each side was young and relatively inexperienced, they took some heavy defeats but enjoyed the competition and chance to see and play against other schools. They all look forward to some friendlies in the coming months.
