The P7 pupils of Rothesay Primary School spoke of their incredibly successful year at their end of term service on Friday morning at the United Church of Bute.

Whilst recognising all that the pupils have achieved, a number of adults were recognised for their contributions to to school life, including instrumental instructor Mr Tony Spencer, who is retiring.

Parent Gaye McLachlan was also recognised for her work with the parent teacher association, while the praises of Hazel Robertson were sung for her contribution to the school’s breakfast club.

Mrs Caroline Speirs from local charity Calum’s Cabin was also present to gratefully accept a cheque from the school for £1200.

The late Jim Ross, who died in March of this year, was also remembered fondly by the school for the massive impact he had on many of the pupil’s lives with his football coaching sessions. His wife, Mrs Margaret Ross, was invited to present pupils with a memorial trophy, adding that Jim would’ve been delighted.

To round off the service, which was led by Rev Owain Jones and Rev Drew Barrie, the pupils were presented with dictionaries to give them a helping hand as they head off to Rothesay Academy.
