On the 15 February, Miss Sharkey, Miss Song and Mrs Campbell took a group of pupils (S2 to S4) to the 2019 Spring Festival Performance in Edinburgh.
There were many dances such as; Girls & the Rain of Dai Ethnic –this was a performance with girls dancing with umbrellas. There were also performances from the Beijing Opera such as; “The Water Sleeve Dance” which enables actors to amplify the characters’ emotions while performing one of the special skills in Chinese Opera.
There was a puppet show called “Fighting the Tiger” which was taken from the famous novel “Water Margin”, which tells the story of Liangshan hero Wu Song returning home to visit his older brother.
Overall, this was a great experience for the pupils who went. We would like to thank the teachers who were involved for this opportunity.
