P5/6 at Cowdenbeath Primary School experienced a ‘Be Jennie Lee’ takeover week.

This is relating to the life of Jennie Lee who was born in Lochgelly and went on to live in Cowdenbeath and taught in the town.

She became a Labour Member of Parliament and played a leading role in the foundation of the Open University as well as being the First Minister for the Arts in Harold Wilson's Government.

Said teacher Arlene Harden: The children were engaged in drama and writing, music and composition, movement, building and making, producing and planning an event pertaining to Jennie Lee’s life. "This is part of the development of the Jennie Lee Trust through Fife Council.

"The show was performed in front of family, school friends, a member of Fife Safer Communities Team along with Annabelle Ewing our local MSP. The children were filmed for a festival and school viewing."
