st-columbas-lifegaurd-award-nov-2016Some of the P7 and P6 pupils in St Columba’s Primary School, Oban, have managed to achieve the Rookie Lifeguard Bronze Award during their swimming lessons in school. With the help of fundraising by the Parent Council, all pupils from P3-P7 have an eight week swimming block every year to ensure that as many pupils as possible are competent swimmers by the time they leave primary school. Of course, none of this would be possible without the help and support of Atlantis Leisure.

furnace-and-minard-gruffalo-2Last Friday, while the ‘bigger’ pupils were off learning how to become Digital Leaders, Furnace and Minard ‘littler’ pupils decided to go off on a Gruffalo Hunt to Ardkinglas Gardens to have some outdoor fun and learn some more Scots words. The crispy cold day added to the sense of adventure, especially as we had recently read The Gurffalo’s Child. We followed the little mouse’s directions past Tod’s ‘deep-dooon hoose’, Hoolet’s “tree-tap hoose” and Snake’s “log-hoose”.

Instead of using traditional recycling methods for disposing of waste paper, pupils at Minard Primary School have been turning it into recycled paper briquettes which can then be used in the community as fuel. As a result of this ingenious idea, Minard Primary was crowned the winner of the Community Resources Network Scotland (CRNS) School Challenge Competition.
