Subjects in Brief
- A new musical for nursery children and young pupils aims to discourage bullying. Based on Lynne Rickards' award-winning book, Pink!, it follows a schoolboy penguin, Patrick, who wakes up one morning to discover he has turned pink. The Hopscotch Theatre show will be seen by about 15,000 children in Scotland, after a preview in Glasgow this Sunday.
World of work
- A West Dunbartonshire primary will host a careers day for P1-7s next week. "The idea is to give something for our children to aspire to and work towards," said Sat Bance, head of Dalreoch Primary. Children will choose workshops for different ages, looking at professions, including leisure, tourism, energy, farming and music.
