On the 26th of March, the BBC came to Bubsy and ‘took over’ for the day. We were only one of four schools chosen in Scotland. There were musicians from the Scottish Symphony Orchestra working with our musicians, an opera singer working with the choir and animators and film makers working with groups of children. The day finished with a performance of ‘Zadok the Priest’, the premier of the documentary and animation and the performance of a song written on the day. What a fantastic experience and can’t wait until next week when we have our showcase for parents and guests. Watch this space for the videos of this truly exciting and unforgettable day. We have also uploaded our videos and art work and hope that some of it may be chosen to be shown at the Proms in the Albert Hall later on in the year. P7 have included some of their thoughts in their class blog.

We all enjoyed the premier of ‘Candyland’ last night at Eastwood Theatre. What a talented group of pupils we have! We are very proud of all of them. A big thank-you goes out to all the parents and staff who have made this production possible. If you enjoyed our show, please leave a comment.
Congratulations to our choirs and musicians who performed at the Glasgow Music Festival this week. The P1 and P2 “Busbits” performed ‘Blitzy Boy’s Tail’ and the P4, P5, P6 and P7 choir and musicians performed a fantasic rendition of ‘Under the Sea’. This performance was so good that they came first in their catagory. Well done to everyone involved. A big thank you to Mrs Cairnie and Miss Milne who gave up their time to rehearse with the children.
We all had a fantastic time last night. We hope you all enjoyed, “The Wizard of Clarkston” too. All of the children and staff are absolute stars. They worked so hard to make last night so very special. The costumes looked stunning and the band were excellent.
Thanks again to all our helpers that gave their time and energy into making last night such a fantastic experience and demonstrating, again, how all the Busby Family work together to ensure our children have these amazing opportunities.
If you would like to make a comment about the show, please reply to this post. Thank-you
Rehearsals have now finished – we’re only hours away from the big performance. Excitement has reached fever pitch! We can’t wait to see you all tonight.
We were very proud of the confidence and talent displayed by our pupils in the Scottish Assemblies. The standard of the entries was very high. A list of the winners in the different sections can be found under the achievement section of the website.
We hope that you all enjoyed last night’s concert as much as we did. Please give us your feedback.
