All you need is music

Pupils at our latest School of the Week Kilsyth Primary all seem to be singing along to the same tune.

For the youngsters are involved in several music projects.

Rockstars has given the talented pupils a chance to create their own CD with a little help from the Liberty Church. The pupils were even due to perform the music at a concert held on Monday at Kilsyth Community Church. The CD is available to purchase at the school.

Creating talented musicians for the future seems to be a goal for the school as they are offering P7 students the opportunity to take music lessons. Mr Paterson is an instrumentalist from Kilsyth Academy who attends the primary to offer the music lessons. During our visit to the school, P7 pupil Louise Rennie showed off what she has been learning to play on the violin.

The complex science of natural disasters has pupils in P6/7 engaged. The students have been taking part in experiments and completing art projects to learn more about natural disasters.

Primary seven pupils are reaching the end of their time at the school, and therefore recently created memories of a lifetime by going to Kilbowie. The students had the time of their lives by taking part in a wide range of outdoor activities.

Learning for P5 is certainly more fun than most of our school days. For the pupils have been given iPads as part of a North Lanarkshire Council pilot scheme. They use the tablets to boost their learning experience at school and home.

Headteacher Christine Anderson said: “Everyone at the school is working very hard and enjoying their work.”
