Nursery Hours 2015-16



Last week Primary 5 & 6 performed opera Warriors! with the help of the Scottish Opera.  It told the tale of the Emperor Qin Shi Huang Di, who commissioned the Terracotta Warriors.  It involved working on the songs for several weeks, and an intense day and a half of workshops with the opera staff, culminating in a performance for parents, complete with costumes.

Below are some of the comments from pupils:

  • It was good, we had a good experience
  • It was musical
  • Everyone had a good time
  • The people from the Scottish opera were fantastic
  • It was really funny
  • It’s probably been the best show so far in school
