Pupils at Strone and Kilmodan Primary Schools have been enjoying a week long curriculum programme to celebrate Scottish heritage.
On Monday 28th November Kilmodan pupils joined Strone pupils for the day.
In the morning the children participated in a number of activities learning traditional Scottish songs, poetry and art.
On Wednesday Regan Johnson from Children 1st, Scotland’s National Children’s charity visited the pupils to talk about the work the charity does and how our fundraising helps children around the country. Pupils came to school dressed in tartan for the day and raised £26 for the ‘Kilts for Kids’ part of the charity.
In the afternoon a Ceilidh was held to celebrate St Andrews day.
As part of their Science lesson on diversity, pupils were treated to a rare sighting of a giant red squirrel when Jan, Heather and Eleanor, members of the Cowal Red Squirrel Group, made a visit to the school on Thursday. The pupils had great fun learning all about these special woodland creatures.
To round off a very successful week pupils from P5-7 organised a Scottish themed tearoom on Friday morning and invited Parents, family members and local residents in to enjoy tea, coffee and a selection of homemade treats. The children raised £75.00 for school funds.
