On Friday 10th of February P7 Pupil-Kate Low donated her hair to The little Princess Trust http://www.littleprincesses.org.uk/donate-hair/ . Kate is an amazing P7 girl, who decided to do this to make someones life happy who has been through Chemotherapy. Dunoon Primary is very proud of Kate and any other pupils who are thinking of doing such a wonderful thing for this tremendous charity.
Each Wednesday some of the P6 pupils are learning from their peers P7 Tech Club, Ian, Callum and Kate along with Mrs Peek. The pupils enjoyed the club very much and the feedback at the end was amazing. The Tech Club instructed the pupils how to code a Micro-Bit. There was various coding instructions ie. Creating a heart with the l e d s, coding their own name into the Micro bit and using it port ably. The p7s enjoyed the challenge of getting the chance to use their skills in Digital Learning with other pupils.
