Nano Science Comes to Dunoon Primary

This week Dr Joy Leckie and her team came from Strathclyde University to Dunoon Primary School to introduce the P1-4s to Nano Science. The Primary 1 and 2 classes were involved in making nano jelly. Primary 3 and 4s learned about polymers, lacing beads to make a bracelet and had the experience of mixing ingredients to make a bouncy ball. It was a messy job, but thoroughly enjoyable!

Dr Joy Leckie and her team arrived to do a workshop yesterday 14th March and spent the day working with P1-P4.

Dunoon Primary held on the 7th of February, a whole school Clan day. The pupils were split into Clan MacCallum,  Hunter, Campbell and MacQueen. The atmosphere was one of excitement as the pupils gathered together in groups to discuss Rights & Responsibility, Anti-bullying and we even gathered letters to send to the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and this will be organised by our wonderful Head Boy & Girl Team, Callum Crofts & Ceana Walker. One of the slogans from Clan MacQueen was ‘Be a buddy- Not a bully!’ along with other great ideas from other Clans. At the end of the day the pupils were enthusiastic and enjoyed the challenge of the day!!

Sandbank Primary was welcomed into our P4 class today to demonstrate their creativity and IT skills and they also showed super presentation ability. They spoke confidently and they had produced magnificent slideshows along with our own Primary 4 Mrs Donald’s Class.
