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.

P2 Streetdance Fun

P2 had a great time taking part in Street Dance with our visitor from Edinburgh Carnival. We really enjoyed learning new dance moves and showing our own moves too!

Carnival Comes to Dalry

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. 

The Sorries Assembly

On Monday we had our brilliant annual visit from folk duo The Sorries in celebration of Scots Week. This was arranged in conjunction with Soundstep workshops who also provided a bodhran drumming workshop for P7 and P3/4.

Thank you to The Sorries, Soundstep Workshops and to all of our student performers.

They led us all in traditional folk songs and were ably supported by singers from some of our classes.

We finished with a great whole school rendition of Auld Lang Syne

Nursery Big Sing



We all enjoyed taking part in a ‘Big Sing’. We went to the school hall and Mrs Ewen played the piano. We sang nursery rhymes and songs we learned in the nursery and at home as part of our Sponsored Rhyme. We hope you enjoy the photos.

Thank you to all of you for coming and to those children, friends and family who raised over £100 for the nursery!!!  We are going to think about something to buy, possibly a music ‘boom box’ that we can use inside and outside when we want to sing and dance.
