Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Valiant Villagers in Viking Show


You’d have thought that 1 stage production would be enough for the pupils of Kirkcolm Primary – but not for our P5-7s! Despite finishing their own school show the night before, our senior class headed to the Ryan Centre on Thursday to work with the Scottish Opera and star in another performance, titled ‘Vikings! The Quest for the Dragon’s Treasure.’

Alongside their school show songs and lines, they’ve been busy learning another set of songs and moves throughout the term in preparation for today.

This performance saw us work alongside pupils from other schools – Leswalt and Portpatrick were the Sorcerers; Sandhead were the Vikings; and Kirkcolm and Drummore were the Villagers. We spent the morning being led by our Scottish Opera performers, who guided us in pulling the whole performance together. After lunch we got our costumes on which helped us to get into character and had a dress rehearsal, ready for our audience-worthy performance just 10-minutes later. 

The story told of the Sorcerer Supreme, the Queen’s advisor who was power-hungry and had been planning to overthrow her. He and his Sorcerers trick the Queen’s Vikings into stealing what they thought was a dragon’s treasure. The Villagers, led by the Farmer, warn them of enraging the dragon and convince the Queen to return the gems – however, they realise that one of the gems is actually a dragon egg and are set upon by the dragon. After reuniting the baby dragon with it’s mother, the story ends with a plot twist as it’s revealed that the Sorcerer Supreme kept one of the “gems” as a souvenir and now the Dad dragon is about to descend upon everyone.

We had an absolutely brilliant day working with the Scottish Opera teaching artists – a huge thank you to them for all of their hard work in helping us to pull it all together.

Our P5-7 pupils have worked their little socks off this term! 1 more day until their well-earned holidays!
