Pip­ing hot in Rus­sia

Wishaw Press - - SCHOOL NEWS - Braid­hurst High

Day of dance

Braid­hurst’s an­nual ‘Pri­mary Day of Dance’ event took place on Fri­day, Jan­uary 26. Pupils from lo­cal pri­mary schools, Lo­gans and Muir Street, spent the day learn­ing and per­form­ing tra­di­tional Scot­tish dances. The event is a key part of the tran­si­tion pro­gramme be­tween pri­mary and se­condary schools with the aim of help­ing pupils feel more con­fi­dent as they make the move to Braid­hurst.

English theatre trip

Na­tional 5 English pupils en­joyed a visit to the Cit­i­zens Theatre in Glas­gow to see the play ‘ Bold Girls’ by Rona Munro.

It was a great ex­pe­ri­ence to see the char­ac­ters they have been study­ing in class come to life. There was a mix­ture of com­edy, sad­ness and rage as the women in the play dealt with the chal­lenges of life dur­ing the 1970s in Belfast.

There were gasps of shock as the char­ac­ter Marie at­tacked her friend Cassie af­ter she re­vealed an af­fair with Marie’s late hus­band.

Live theatre with its im­pas­sioned per­for­mances cer­tainly had the au­di­ence on the edge of their seats.

Over­all, pupils and staff had a great time with the added bonus of ice cream at the in­ter­val and a chance to min­gle with some of the ac­tors in the cafe af­ter the per­for­mance.

Cameron and Zoe May

The school are very proud of two its pupils: sib­ling mu­si­cians Cameron and Zoe May who were in­vited to per­form at the Bri­tish Con­sulate in St Peters­burg, Rus­sia, on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 2. S3 pupil Cameron, is a fan­tas­tic piper, who last year en­joyed great suc­cess at the Scots Guard Ju­nior Pip­ing com­pe­ti­tion where he was placed first in two of the cat­e­gories. Younger sis­ter, S2 pupil Zoe, sup­plied the per­fect ac­com­pa­ni­ment on the drums. A huge well done to both pupils.
