As part of our Scottish month we are holding a Family Ceilidh on Thursday 30th January at 6.30pm – 8.30pm.

Come along for a fabulous night of dancing to a live ceilidh band!

Some of our P6 and P7 will  be entertaining us with some Scottish songs and light refreshments will be provided.

Tickets cost £2 per adult. In order to allocate a child’s ticket on ParentPay a 1 pence charge is required.   Money raised from the ticket sales will go towards hiring the hall for the evening.  Tickets are limited and will therefore be allocated on a first come first served basis.
