|Dunbog, KY14 6JF, UK Cupar|
We are proud of our successful pupils and effective contributors. Last session our pupils won trophies and medals at the Cupar Burn's Competition. Two years ago Dunbog was the "Most Enterprising School In Scotland" and last session we won £2000 in a Scottish Executive waste aware project.
We are in partnership with Doroba school in Malawi and continually look for new ways to fund raise for projects.
It was nice to be recognised in these ways, but we are also proud of all our pupils who give all of their best on a daily basis, who are motivated and enthusiastic who care for each other and care for the people and the world around them.
Our School Ethos
At Dunbog we offer and actively foster a warm caring and supportive environment. We achieve this by prioritising partnership between parents, pupils, staff and community. We regularly create opportunities to celebrate success develop self-esteem and encourage a "can do " climate.
Our School Aims
We aim to provide an interesting and stimulating curriculum embedded in our very supportive ethos.
We are keen that every child has an equal opportunity to access this curriculum and we pride ourselves on the support we are able to give to individuals whilst encouraging teamwork.
We promote active learning and present a balanced curriculum that offers progression, breadth and balance.
Dunbog School is a small rural school. It nestles in the rolling countryside of North Fife and can be easily accessed from the A92 by the A913, which leads to Newburgh and then Perth.
Our building dates from the late 19th century and comprises of a main classroom block and also a general - purpose annexe. Tourists regularly stop to photograph our clock tower and comment on our lovely school garden.
Adjacent to the school is the newly refurbished village hall, which offers excellent facilities for PE and school presentations.
We have a very active and supportive school board. We pride ourselves on a very close partnership with our board members and in fact all parents. The school board are keen to be involved in many aspects of school life and work energetically and tirelessly to provide a framework of support for staff and pupils.
They also provide financial support through their annual fundraising efforts and regularly finance special educational outings for the pupils. At present they are developing links with other school boards. Our chairperson is Mrs Thoenissen. She can be contacted through the school.
We have recently received our second green flag. We are delighted with this achievement. We are very proud of our new raised gardens and have recently enjoyed our home made vegetable soup using school grown vegetables.
This session we will continue to develop our garden and tend our young trees. We are also in consultation about investing in a wind turbine which would provide electricity for whole school use. We would welcome all new Eco ideas.
We continue to be an enterprising school. Last session we made 1000 bags for life and sold them in the community and at a local farmer's market. These bags won a national prize for being waste aware. Throughout this session we will work in partnership to develop new and exciting ideas and use Enterprise week in November as a focus. Renewable energy will be a theme and possibly feeding 1000 pupils at our partner school in Malawi.
The After School Club was established in October 2005. The club is running very well and ir organised by exceptionally good staff. We are delighted to offer "Wrap Around Car" and are very grateful to our hardworking parents who made this possible.
