Keep Calm and Ceilidh On – Strath of Appin Primary

A packed hall of family, friends and members of the community enjoyed a terrific evening of music, dance and entertainment at our recent ceilidh. The children enthusiastically performed their songs and ceilidh dances and it was a great opportunity for the highland dancers to showcase their talents along with our instrumental performers (on chanter, accordion and violin).

Tea, coffee, delicious truffles, shortbread and krispies, all made by the pupils, were a welcome energy boost before the second half of the ceilidh programme. Senior pupils did a great job of keeping things moving along and thanked our band for the evening, Michael and Joanie Garvin.

This was a real enterprise activity for the pupils with each clan taking responsibility for organising an aspect of the ceilidh (publicity- poster, notes/ information home, venue preparations – booking the hall, making decorations, setting out tables and chairs, entertainment – compiling a programme of items, booking the band etc). A super way to share and showcase our learning and have great fun at the same time.
