Diwali Celebration

We all had an amazing nursery and P1 Diwali celebration on Tuesday 10th October.

We were treated to a morning of singing, dancing, activities and food which was celebrated by many of our families at Dalry.

Thank you so much to all the families and pupils who performed and helped out.

P5 Players Open Art Exhibition

Well done to the members of our P5 class who performed at the opening of the annual St Martin’s Art Exhibition 2017.

The opening took place on August 29th at St Martin’s Community Resource Centre.

In a very short timescale the children reheased and performed three songs with the support of Mrs Ewen and Mrs Stein. Our pupils were joined by children from Tynecastle High School music department who performed a number of vocal and instumental pieces.

We were proud to spot several ex pupils of Dalry in the performers. It was a fantastic afternoon for pupils, staff, our church partner and community members.

Red Note Ensemble Visit

On Wednesday the school was lucky to recieve a visit from a quartet of members from The Red Note Ensemble.

Since its formation in 2008, Red Note Ensemble has taken up a leadership position as Scotland’s contemporary music ensemble, performing and developing both an extensive, highly-varied and critically-acclaimed programme of new music.”

The quartet performed for P6 and P5 in their classrooms, bringing the pupils into contact with pieces by Janáček and Shostakovitch, amongst others.

Many members of P6 and P5 were visibly enthused by the experience, referring to it afterwards as “extreme” and “exciting”.

 

Thank you very much to the Red Note members for their kind visit.
