P6 Cycling Proficiency

Dunoon Primary’s P6 pupils have been out on the road recently practising and completing their Cycling Proficiency. The pupils were put through the programme in the playground to start and once competent were taken out on the road by trainers Mrs S Derrett & Mrs M Peek assisted by volunteer Bunty.

The weather was dry for most of the training and the pupils became more confident week after week. The training is now complete and the pupils are waiting for their badges and certificates to be handed out very soon! Well done and happy cycling P6!

Olly’s Memorial Tournament at DGS

On Thursday 26th May 2017, a beautiful sunny day, all local Primary Schools took part in a tournament in memory of a wonderful lad Olly Jones.

The teams played 5 games in each category for the senior pupils and the juniors played 10. The pupils had a terrific time and it was a tournament to remember! The etiquette and teamwork was evident on the day and the day closed with a nail biting final with P7 Dunoon Dudes facing Kirn P7. The game began with Kirn scoring first with Aidan Clark running past Dunoon’s defence and placing it past the keeper Grant Thorup. Dunoon returned with an amazing goal scored by Keane McCulloch as the ball was played over the defenders by Peter Jeffrey and Keane was on hand to tap it into the goal. Kirn then scored again with a back heel that deflected off Scott Melville and went past Grant! Then Dunoon fired a goal into the net, Charlie Robertson  thus creating an even score. Then with the last minute to play (20 seconds) Dunoon’s Charlie curled the ball round the wall and straight into the top right hand corner.

There was a pitch invasion leading to friendly handshakes on both sides. Dunoon were elated and presented with their trophy at the end. A marvellous tribute to Olly, who was a keen footballer himself and Mr Mitchell hopes to carry this on next year!

Dunoon Primary held its Annual Daffodil Tea on Thursday March 30th. Our Senior Citizens from the local community joined us for a wonderful afternoon of music, samba drumming, fiddle, chanter and singing from our choir and P4/5/6. The show was carefully presented by our terrific P7 pupils who had produced entertaining introductions for each act themselves.

 

First up was the choir with a medley of three songs including Yellow Submarine, Yellow Brick Road and the The Dark Island. This was followed by our wonderful dancers who entertained the audience with the ‘Sailors Hornpipe’, The Jig, Seann Triubhas and the Highland Fling. The fiddlers were up next playing very skilfully and tunefully followed by some chanter music. Ex Dunoon Primary pupils from Dunoon Grammar treated us to their musical talent with a medley of fiddle and piano tunes . Primary 4/5 have been learning about the USA and sang whole heartedly ‘This Land Is My Land’ followed by ‘Fifty Nifty United States’. The smiles on the faces of the pupils and the audience were a delight to see and it was certain the afternoon was a roaring success. The show finished with P6 on the Samba Drums. a very lively ending to a brilliant afternoon. The guests were treated to home baking and tea and coffee and the feedback from all was that it was a great performance with fantastic variety! Mrs Morag Macdonald Acting Head teacher thanked the pupils and staff for their hard work which enabled all pupils from the upper school classes to take part in this annual event in the School’s Calendar.
