Piping hot in Russia
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.
