To celebrate our whole school Interdisciplinary Topic, Our School and Our Community, we hosted an Open Day for the community to come in to our school. Our community were able to take guided tours of our school led by our pupils to see the wonderful work that we have been doing. We are very lucky that Mr John Stirling from our local museum provided us with school artefacts from bygone days and was there to help us on the day and talk to our visitors.Eleanor McKay from Library HQ helped us with the displays.
We met past pupils from when Dunoon Primary was the Dunoon Grammar School who came along on the day as well as former primary pupils and staff. We also welcomed all our friends in the Community to come along and join in the fun and were delighted to see so many faces!
In light of our upcoming refurbishment and part rebuild, this was an ideal opportunity for our community to see the school before the big changes take place and take a walk down memory lane. Teas and coffees and home baking were provided. There was a variety of memorabilia on display and the visitors were thrilled to look through all the old picture and documents, some even stayed for most of the morning browsing around!
In the evening we hosted a Ceilidh for adults only. ‘Canned Haggis’ was playing for us and Chatters provided a delicious small stovie supper in keeping with the Scottish theme. Grateful thanks to Rosie and her staff. Thank you to everyone involved and for making it such a momentous, special occasion for our school.
