Primary seven pupils from Bute’s three primary schools joined forces this week for their annual Christmas party at Rothesay Joint Campus.

The move to include all the island’s P7 pupils in a single event is part of local schools’ efforts to make the children’s ‘transition’ from primary to secondary as smooth as possible.

But as our picture shows, on the night those involved were far more concerned with having as much festive fun as they could, with Scottish country dancing, party food and a disco sharing the bill with a balloon dance contest - which resulted in possibly the least movement ever seen on a dance floor when the DJ is playing ‘Gangnam Style’ by PSY!
