5th – 8th June
Last year all of the P7s from all over Cowal came up to Dunoon Grammar School for their transition week. This gave them a taster of their new school (teachers, subjects, food etc.), and also made sure when they came to the school as S1s in August they were familiar with the environment. Stuart Lock and Jessie Miller have been around all their classes to see how they had been settling in to the Grammar. This was be a new experience for them because some of the new pupils come from schools with under 20 students!
The P7s had a full schedule but a few interviews with the students were able to be squeezed in!
In an interview with Andrew Stirling (previous head boy in Kirn Primary), he revealed what his favourite subjects were, what the best parts of DGS are and whether or not he was looking forward to coming back in August. Watch Andrew’s interview below.
Another with Emma Bancks (also a past pupil at Kirn) quickly told us how she was finding the transition week. Watch Emma’s interview below.
The P7s were obviously picking things up quickly as they had shown after ten minutes in Miss McChesney’s class.
Since then the former P7s have settled perfectly into their new school and enjoyed the transition experience.
