Our annual school Christmas ceilidh for P6-7 youngsters took place on Thursday 8th December from 6.30-9pm
In the weeks up to the event the classes had been busy practising a range of traditional Scottish dances. The children wrote invites to members of the school and local community, as well as former staff. They also made a range of decorations for the gym and dining halls.
The Dave Ross Ceilidh Band were booked to provide live Scottish music at the ceilidh. The talented musicians who play accordion and keyboard have been coming to the school's annual event for many years. The gentlemen always comment on how well prepared and behaved our youngsters are at the ceilidh.
What a wonderful night it was! On the evening the children came dressed to impress, some wearing tartan. The ceilidh band payed many toe tapping songs, including the Dashing White Sergeant, as the youngsters, staff and guests danced energetically along.
A wonderful spread of food was enjoyed by all half way through the evening in the gym hall. Then it was back to the main hall for more dancing and party games. The ceilidh finished off with everyone joining in the Hokey Pokey and then Auld Lang Syne. A truly memorable night was had by all.
