On Saturday 3rd December 2016, Rockfield pupils, staff and PTA held their annual Holly tea. This event was very well attended and we would like to thank everyone who was involved in making this such a wonderful and successful event!
Pupils from the primary and pre-5 made various items to be sold at the Christmas Fayre at The Creggans on Sunday 27th November. Pupils worked at the stall all day from 11am until 4pm and we raised £104.70 for the school. We were also selling raffle tickets for a fantastic Christmas hamper, containing vouchers worth up to £300! We raised £270.00 from our raffle on Sunday – thanks to the Strachur Parent Partnership Group for organising this. The tickets will be drawn at our Christmas concert on Thursday 22nd of December. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
Rockfield Primary School PTA held two Hallowe’en discos on Thursday 27th October 2016. The pupils were wearing wonderful costumes and had made a huge effort in order to celebrate Hallowe’en! Some of the staff joined in too and were even scarier than usual! Many thanks go to the PTA and the staff for decorating the hall and organising the games, which ensured that the night was a great success!
Dunoon Primary held their prizegiving ceremony today at St John’s Church. The church was full of proud parents as the trophies were distributed to the pupils. The choir sang two songs to a delighted audience. Mrs Stewart gave her address speech to the crowd and spoke of the school year and all our fantastic achievements. The PTA gave out calculators and framed pictures of the P7 leavers dance and Mr Taylor of the Rotary Club gave out dictionaries to all the P7 pupils.
On Sunday 12th July, the members of Dunoon Primary’s PTA organised a fantastic street picnic to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday. We set up in the school’s dining hall as the forecast wasn’t great but thankfully we were still able to enjoy activities in the playground too. The local fire engine and crew came along and lots of children enjoyed climbing aboard and wearing the very heavy helmet. Greg Girard coached children of all ages in his football skills workshops.
