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.

More Red Note Ensemble

Further to our post about the recent Visit from the Red Note Ensemble here are some more photos of the performance they gave for P6.

P6 had a wonderful visit from the Red Note Ensemble, who are touring Scotland this month. They are all accomplished professional musicians who use their music to tell stories which inspire us to imagine journeys. What an amazing opportunity to have live music played just for us!

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.
