What a fantastic experience for our P4 and P5 pupils this afternoon, supported by Colin from Google. The pupils were able to explore the universe and The Great Barrier Reef using Google Cardboard virtual reality viewers. From the oohs and aaghs that filled the room a great time was had by all!
The ‘Busby Family’ saved the day on Friday as the planned performance of ‘Snow White’ was called off at very late notice.
