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
We were once again so lucky to get such a sunny day for our Sport’s Day and the children did us all very proud.
Many thanks to all of you for coming along and supporting the children.
P5 and P6 are very much looking forward to their performance of Warriors! The Emperor’s Incredible Army this Thursday, 25th June at 2.45pm.
Please note that due to lack of space, we can only accommodate one parent/carer per P5/ P6 child.

Well done to Jamie and Joseph in P6 who represented Cockenzie at the Preston Lodge round of the Little and Large cooking competition. They worked with a pupil at PL to create a delicious cheesecake. They did so well that they won the round and are headed off to the East Lothian finals in Dunbar in a few weeks time. We wish them all the best for the final! We are very proud, and look forward to tasting more of your creations.
Just a reminder that school is closed to pupils on Monday 18th May as it is an In-service day for staff.
