The whole school enjoyed a performance from ESRE (Edinburgh Schools Rock Ensemble) on Friday 14th June. The band are made up of talented musicians and singers from across the High Schools in Edinburgh.We learned about the instruments in the band and listened to a selection of songs from the bands latest set. The children loved singing along to Sunshine on Leith.
Mrs Honeyman was especially proud of her son Aidan. who plays lead guitar with the group.
Primary 6 had a fantastic time at their recent camp!
We were so lucky to experience so many different activities including wall climbing, crate stacking, archery and making fires!
Everyone did a fantastic job of supporting each other to challenge themselves and face their fears. Day 2 was very wet and muddy but it didn’t stop us having fun, in fact we decided to embrace it by jumping in the mud puddles and have rolly polly races down the hill, it was great fun! If only we could do it all again!
Day 1 at camp was a great success. Everyone arrived safely, and enjoyed settling into their dormitories with their friends. Mrs Mason paid them a surprise visit, and made sure everyone was settled and happy before heading back to school.

The children did a range of activities with the instructors in the afternoon (more pics to follow after camp) before some free time before dinner. Mrs Honeyman joined the children and staff for dinner, before games out on the field and in the woodland. The children took part in a range of games and particularly enjoyed a game of camouflage hide and seek in the woods.
Then it was back to the chalet for hot showers, PJs and supper. Mrs Clements surprised the children with another staff visit, and made a delicious supper of hot chocolate and cake. The children had time for indoor games with Miss Curran, Mrs Harris Toner and Mr Devine before heading off to bed.
The wet weather certainly did not dampen their enthusiasm!
The whole school enjoyed an amazing performance assembly on Monday by International Artists from around the globe who are part of the Edinburgh Jazz Festival Carnival. We enjoyed music, dance and drama during their performance show to us.
If you’re interested in more carnival experiences there are lots of classes and events at St Brides ahead of the big event in July. Click here for more info.
