Dunoon Primary School Health Week

DPS Health week 1This week the whole school have been involved in lots of physical activity including karate, shinty, orienteering, tennis, fitness dance and yoga. The older children also had presentations from Police Scotland, local Health Visitors and the assistant manager from the local Oxfam shop who all gave very interesting talks with very important messages regarding physical and emotional wellbeing.

Younger children had a visit from the Childsmile team who reminded them about the importance of good oral health. The children have taken part in a school lunch competition to create a meal or a menu which Mrs Kirk and her team will hopefully serve next term as part of the “Theme” menu programme. P5-7 children competed in the school’s first ever swimming gala to earn points for their clan. Every child can earn points for their clan this week by bringing a healthy snack to school, participating well in activities, demonstrating excellent behaviour, etc. Weather permitting, Friday’s Clan Sports Day and Sponsored Walk (1 mile for Nursery – P3 and 3 miles for P4-7) will finish a week of fun filled, active learning in Dunoon Primary. The winning clan McCallum was awarded their trophy at a special end of term assembly.
