P4 Young Artist Competition

The Rotary Young Artist Competition is organised by Rotary District 1020.

P4 enjoyed taking part this year and entered some ‘Harry Potter’ themed art work as part of their class novel work at the time.

The competition aims to encourage young people to:
•experiment with creativity
•use traditional or contemporary methods of fine art
•show interpretation of their chosen topic
•express their ideas through the medium of fine art

Members of Dunbar Rotary Club visited our assembly on Friday to congratulate three pupils who got through to the final stage of the competition. Well done!

P7 Mentor Group – WWII

The P7 Mentor Group organised a Q & A session with WWII survivors. Here’s a little bit of information about our visitors:
May – She was 10 when war broke out and had family who fought in it.
Elspeth – She was 5 when war started and went to stay with family as her parents were in India. Her family took in refugees who had lost everything in the Clydebank blitz.
Mike – Evacuated to the south coast from East London. He remembers seeing Doodlebugs flying over.
Margaret – Her dad was a doctor so saw a different kind of war.
The P7s learned so much from their visit and we are so grateful to May, Elspeth, Mike & Margaret for coming in to speak to us. A wonderful experience for our pupils. Thank you.
