What a wonderful showcase of the terrific musical talents of the young people and staff of James Gillespie’s High School at the Usher Hall Christmas Concert on Tuesday 20th December 2016! Cluster Primary Seven pupils from Sciennes, Tollcross, James Gillespie’s Primary, Preston Street, Royal Mile and Taobh na Pairce Primary Schools really rose to the occasion, sang beautifully and made everyone so proud. Thank you to JGHS Performing Arts Faculty Leader Mrs Deirdre O’Brien and her team for inviting the children to participate and organising the whole event.
Eighty of our own P7 pupils took to the stage and we commend their confidence and their ‘can do’ attitude, bolstered by lots of hard work and rehearsal with their Class Teachers. We are very grateful for the tremendous parental support in enabling so many of our pupils to participate this year.
So lovely to see so many of our former pupils also shine on stage. A memorable, exciting way to end the year that also gives our pupils a flavour of all the musical possibilities that await them at secondary school next year.
