A mobile app created by young people from Dunoon Primary School was unveiled at a meeting of Argyll and Bute Council’s Community Services Committee yesterday (Thursday).
The app provides information about the Education Service Vision and Strategy, “Our Children Their Future”, and was presented to members by three of Dunoon Primary’s Digital Leaders: Barry Campbell, Cameron MacRaild and Laurie Thorup.
The Council’s Policy Lead for Education, Councillor Yvonne McNeilly said: “Firstly, I would like to thank the Digital Leaders from Dunoon Primary for providing us with a very professional and informative presentation of the new app which has been created.
“The app provides easy access to the Education Vision and Strategy and is available to download from the Google store. It will also soon be available in the Apple iOS store. These pupils are a true credit, not only to their own school, but to the whole of Argyll and Bute.”
Well done to Dunoon B Team who won today’s Cowal Inter Schools Sports day. The children were delighted to be joined by two times Cowal Heavy Athletics Champion Iceland’s Heisi Geirmundsson.
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!
- Today (Friday 2nd June 2017) was a glorious sunny day for all local primary schools. Dunoon Primary had 8 teams from p4-p7 taking part in the football. The athletics was on first with running 50m & 100m P4-P7 and relay races.
The weather held for the day and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Medals will be presented on Monday in the school.
There will be a quiz night at Dunoon Golf Club on 23 June 2017 at 7.30 for 8 p.m. Please come along and support our school and the wonderful PTA committee.
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!
