Sing for the Commonwealth


On Wednesday 7th May, the pupils from Abernyte Primary travelled to Perth Concert Hall to take part in the annual Show-In-A-Day event.  Following on from last year’s successful performance of “The Sound of Music”, schools were this time invited to take part in a show based around the upcoming Commonwealth Games which are being held in Glasgow this year.

Each school attending represented a difference country competing in the Commonwealth Games, with abernyte representing Kenya.  Pupils dressed the part, wearing outfits based on traditional Kenyan tribal costumes and two pupils represented the school carrying the Kenyan flag (which pupils had previously painted) in the procession of countries on stage.  Even staff members got in on the act, with Mr Billen and Mrs Holt looking good in their Kenyan attire.

After a day of song rehearsals, a short performance was put on, which featured the Commonwealth themed songs:

“Wakati wa Amani”
“The Jamaican Alphabet”
“Highland Cathedral”
“Going for Gold”
“Can You Hear It?”
