Enterprising Primary 6 pupils at Rhu put their digital heads together and came up with a charitable and eco-friendly plan to support the Helensburgh Foodbank at Christmas time. The children collected a total of 305 items in just two weeks by establishing their Christmas-e-Greetings company in the school. The scheme involved pupils buying a digital greeting card which was displayed on the TV’s in the foyer and hall during December. Instead of exchanging money for the greeting, the pupils brought in items of food for the foodbank.
Primary 6 and Primary 7 have been learning a whole range of Scottish ceilidh dances this term. The culmination of this work was twofold, a wonderful ceilidh last night and then this morning a whole school Strictly dancing competition, complete with judges! Both events were wonderful!
