Christmas at DPS

We have had a great festive term here at Dunrossness.

The Carol Concert was fantastic, the classes all sang beautifully. The mulled apple juice and mince pies were a hit too.

Thank you once again for your support for our fundraising efforts.

Pupil  Christmas Cards – £273

Donations at Carol Concert – £124.76

Christmas Card Deliveries – £350.20

In addition to this we also donated £109.64 to Save the Children for our Christmas Jumper Day.

Wishing you all a lovely festive break and look forward to seeing you all next year!

Again this year we are donating items for the Shetland Foodbank, helping to provide food parcels for those in need at Christmas.

Each child has a day to bring an item in to school to contribute to the collection.

Some of the items suggested are:



shower gel


tinned or instant custard

tins of rice pudding

jars of jam

UHT milk

tins of mince, stew, sausages

tinned or instant potatoes

Snow White and the Seven Jockeys

Wow!  Just home from the evening performance and what a brilliant show!  Well done one and all for the hard work that went into the production.

Thanks to all the class teachers for working on their scenes in class, to Mrs Inkster for the music and singing, Mrs J Smith for the movement and dance, John for the scenery, props, lightning, sound, photos and everything else he does to make sure the shows run smoothly.  Thanks to Mrs Leslie for her hard work in producing the whole show.   I know plans are already afoot for next year’s shows!

Thanks to Izzy Swanson too for her help and support too.

When I thanked folk tonight I forgot to mention Mrs Casey and Mrs Graydon for all their hard work in making props and costumes!  Sorry!

It was wonderful to see a full house tonight!  It is great for the bairns to have such a wonderful and receptive audience to perform to.

Finally thank you to all the bairns who took part in the show.  You are all super stars.  I am so very proud of you all.  What a wonderful, talented bunch you are!

I didn’t get many photos but here are a couple of our fetching panto dames!
