The Club also maintains close links with local schools. An annual concert is organised with the Music Department of Inverkeithing High School. Pupils are sponsored on the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, a 5 day residential developmet event, and a contribution is made annually to prizes. Primary schools compete in a national quiz with one regularly reaching the national finals.
