Scottish Assemblies

Thursday saw two very successful Scottish Poetry Assemblies. As always, our children did us proud with their confident and expressive recitals.ย  The judges had a very difficult job deciding on the winners.

The P1-3 trophy went to Islaย  of P3W who recited The Skipping Sang by J K Annand.

The P4-5 winner was Layla with her performance of The Red Balloon by an anonymous author.

For P6-7 Mia gave an excellent performance of Robert Burnsโ€™ Wullie Whastle.

Very well done to all of our finalists and a special well done to the three winners.

The upper schoolย were entertained by Eilidh,ย Evie, Chloe and Hollie from P7 dancing the Highland fling, as well asย  Kirsty, Eleanor and Ellie from P6.ย  Rachel and Eilidh from P7 sang Loch Lomond beautifully andย we mustn’t forget our ICT technicians Owen and Lewis for their expert help too.

This was a wonderful way to reflect and complete our Scottish month in school. Each year January is busy, with the classes looking at our heritage, our traditions, our culture and much more. They take part enthusiastically and with great enjoyment. Many thanks to the teachers for their hard work behind the scenes.

We must also extend warm thanks to Ms Grant and Mrs Joannides of the Parent Council for judging the infant performances and to Mr Bradford, Mr Wilson and Mr McNellis for their expert decisions with the upper school.

Burns Assembly 7th February 2019

As you know we have been working very hard on our Scots and Burns poems. This year there is a slight change to our arrangements. We are having a P1-3 Assembly on Thursday 7th February where our winners will recite their poems to the infant department and a panel of judges from the Parent Council. Each of our winners will receive a certificate and the lucky winner from P1- 3 will be awarded a trophy to hold for a year.

The upper school will have a similar event with 3 judges from the Burns Federation. There will be 2 trophies, one for the overall winner from P4&5 and one from P6&7 and of course, certificates for all class winners.ย  We will also be entertained with singing and dancing.ย  We are very lucky to have such talented children.

The following Wednesday at school assemblies the infant winner will recite their winning poem to the upper school assembly and vice versa.

We would invite the children to wear something tartan on Thursday 7th, if they have it, to help us celebrate Burns Day. This could be a tie, a hairband, a blouse, a skirt, anything tartan. It is not a non-uniform day but if you have the full regalia we would love to see it!

We are all looking forward to the performances and pictures will be posted on the school blog next week.

Thank you once again for your support.
