Castletown Primary School organised a number of activities around the theme of a Christmas of Kindness and Community, with the aim of spreading more love and happiness.

The school ran a festive window competition which attracted many creative entries. Primary 6/7 pupils judged the entries and, after lots of deliberation, chose the five winners.

Children also organised a free Happiness Hamper raffle, with enough donations brought into the school for 12 large hampers. Parents, children and members of the public made nominations for entry to the raffle.

Pupils painted Christmas stones that were put out on display around Castletown and Dunnet. Every child also made a community Christmas card and Christine Stone, who is involved in many community groups, organised the distribution of these.

Head teacher Rhona Moodie said: "The school has been delighted with the supportive feedback received from members of the community who have offered their thanks and appreciation for the children’s thoughtfulness and hard work."
