Dunoon Primary School held their annual Sports Day on Monday 30th May 2016 at Dunoon Stadium. We started the event with a Clan Parade around the 400m track led by piper, Cambeul Walker. The clan captains carried their tartan banners proudly and the children enjoyed parading round and waving to the many parents, grandparents, friends and siblings. Following this, clans competed in different activities for the Clan Sports.
The Space Hopper race and obstacle course were the most popular events, once again. P4-7 found the introduction of a javelin activity an added challenge. Whilst Mrs Docherty and Mrs Stewart added the scores, the children split into their stages for the more traditional events. Soon it was time for the scores and the presentation of the prizes and this year’s winners were Clan MacCallum. Each member of the clan received a gold medal and the Sports Day trophy was presented to Clan Captains, Daniels and Holly.
The event was a huge success and we were so lucky to have sunshine throughout the day. Special thanks for Mr Duncan and his 4th year students from Dunoon Grammar School who helped to set up the Clan Sports and kept the scores for us. Also, to Pev McChlerey and Mr Oliphant for setting up the boundaries for the stage races.
Finally, a huge thank you to the Pit Stop for providing water and the Co-op Supermarket who donated 200 pieces of fruit. This was certainly enjoyed by the children after an afternoon of running! Well Done McCallum the winning clan of the day!
