This year, Maisondieu Primary School endeavoured to showcase a wider variety of talent at their annual Scots Nicht Concert, held on January 26.

The evening’s entertainment included pupils performing dances and playing musical instruments, including clarinet, violin, viola, French horn, trombone and piano!

The school choir once again took to the stage and performed a range of Scottish songs.

The evening wouldn’t have been complete without some Scottish poetry and, to that end, Calum Milne and Mathew Crabb, winners of the 2012 Maisondieu Scottish poetry competition, gave entertaining recitations of the poems they had learned.

Primary four, four/five and five pupils entertained the audience with a fantastic performance of the play ‘Wee Gillis’ and the evening was concluded with a stirring performance on the bagpipes by one of the parents, Craig Black.

The evening was well attended with approximately two hundred tickets sold.

The money raised from the sale of the tickets will go towards a new stage for the school.
